Getting seniors online
It happened that a post I did on "Rethinking community planning around maintaining neighborhood civic assets and anchors" sparked a comment from a colleague who is working on digital divide type issues related to senior citizens.
I really love the graphic they use to explain how they are trying to create a digitally networked senior community, further leveraging the network to other community organizations and institutions.
A key issue for the program is connecting to Senior housing buildings and Section 8 housing with appropriate programming. Their initial project is creating Internet access and training operations for 2,900 building residents in 23 building scattered across 10 communities in northern Illinois from Chicago to Rock Island.
