Super Silver

Over the weekend, I was at the Silver IT Roadshow at Toa Payoh HDB Hub at the Silver Digital Creators Preview booth as well as sharing on the main stage.

The preview ran throughout the whole day at 45-minute intervals. It was wondeful to see the senior trainers in action and I took some of the slots too.

 

Over at the main stage, I had an opportunity each day to share about coding, accessibility and finally the creation of digital books.

This last one was one of the most fun as I gave myself the challenge of collaboratively creating a multimedia ebook within 15 minutes with the audience. At first there was the concern that they would be shy but I had not only 3 brave participants to come on stage but even had the rest of the audience participating to pose for a photo and then to add a nice hearty yam-seng to the book.

Seniors today are certainly more savvy and so the time is ripe for them to explore and use the many ways that technology helps us to create. As I told them, they have the experience, knowledge, imagination and creativity to create some truly wonderful books.
