Residents Enjoy Free Mobile Technology Workshop as AARP TEK Program

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

More than 90 local residents enjoyed a free mobile technology workshop in Aurora, as AARP launched the national expansion of its AARP TEK Program with the support of AT&T. The AARP TEK workshop in Aurora was aimed at empowering local residents, who are 50-plus, to increase their digital literacy by teaching them the skills and giving them the confidence they need to use technology. These mobile technologies are transforming the way information is found, business is conducted and people connect with one another. AARP TEK will expand to include eight new cities, eleven locations overall, featuring free, live workshops aimed at helping close the technology gap among people 50-plus. Presented with the support of AT&T, these face to face workshops enable people to leverage personal technology to enrich their lives. AARP TEK (which stands for Technology Education and Knowledge) launched last year. It includes hands-on workshops in select cities as well as the AARP TEK Academy which is a free, easy-to-use online classroom. Both are open to anyone, including but not limited to AARP members, and are designed to allow Americans to connect with people and passions in their lives using technology.
