Do you want to see a heartwarming documentary about seniors learning about new technology? Join AARP Utah at the screening of “Cyber Seniors,” a film that proves you’re never too old to learn something new. Initially reluctant seniors discover the wonders of the web with the help of teenage mentors. This humorous and candid film explores the victories and challenges seniors can face as they dive into the digital world.
The documentary will be screened at the City Library, 210 East 400 South, in Salt Lake City on May 20 at 7:00 pm. Admission is free and the film is open to the public. No registration is required. If you have an interest in technology and teaching, please let us know at the film as we are also recruiting volunteers to help teach classes to seniors about how to use Facebook, Twitter, and other electronic means of communication.
