This Week’s Topic (s):
Happy New Year!
This week, I put on my Isidra Gadget hat and I am excited to meet this week three experts who are dealing with websites and training the elders how to get up to speed on computers and other technologies.
Don’t glaze over! Right now, stop and go to your website. When is the last time you were there? Does it still say your last event is going up and that was weeks, months or years ago? Do you have people pictured who no longer work with you? Then meet two gentlemen who can help you with your web woes–Ian Chestnut, webmaster, web designer and web developer of IVC Productions. I can personally vouch for his work as I have been his web coordinator for various projects. http://www.ivcpro.com
Also William Byers, Explorer Studios, likes to enhance your existing website with customized video and photography that will keep a visitor around that much longer.
Teach your customers how to use your products, show them what you do. It’s easy with video!
And saving the best for last, Shani Byard Ngunjiri. of Message Media Ed. teaches elders how to cross the digital divide and do it with cultural expression and fellowship with other seniors in the same boat. Now they better communicate with the young in their families! http://www.messagemediaed.org or call (323) 708-2526.
