LU Jockey Club Gerontechnology and Smart Ageing Project Team
COVID-19 has forced school closures and adopt online learning. LU Jockey Club Gerontechnology and Smart Ageing Project offered a series of online activities through videos, Facebook and Zoom for the general public to learn at home.
33 elderly participated in the first “Gerontechnology Ambassador Online Training”. Most of them did not attend any online courses or Zoom before this training. In response to the increasing learning needs, the project team made a user guide and a practical workshop on Zoom via Facebook live.
They experienced Zoom from “Can you hear me?” “I can only see a scene” and “I cannot find the chatroom”, to “I sent a message to all” “I can see the Powerpoint slide” and having laughter in the conference. An elderly said she got useful information in Gerontechnology and learnt the latest elderly policies and the Government Budget. The project team would explore new topics and organize more stay-at-home learning activities.
