Seniors Who Selfie

Bluehair Technology Group - BSA 1116

Even though their mother had barely so much as turned on a computer, Jane Ratliff and her brother were convinced a tablet would make a great gift for her 86th birthday. After a few months of putting her education and training skills to use, Jane had helped her mother learn how to send emails, keep up with friends and family on social media and play games.

The realization that there was a whole generation of adults cut off from popular technology simply because no one had shown them how to use it is what led Jane to create Bluehair Technology Group. The Atlanta-based nonprofit offers books and PDF quick-start g

uides to help seniors get going with their new gadgets. With the help of volunteers and trainers, Bluehair brings hands-on programs that help seniors learn how to navigate smart phones, tablets and social networking to independent-living communities throughout the city.
