Computer Training for Baby Boomers
The Baby Boomer generation is an important one. Those of us who were born between the years 1946 and 1964 are referred to as the “Baby Boomer” generation. We’re nearly 80 million in number. That’s no small figure; the Baby Boomer generation are most definitely an important part of our society.
Unfortunately many younger people believe that this generation has an aversion to newer technologies and advanced gadgetry. This may be true of some but many older people are expert users of technology. Sadly this myth can cause ageist bias against them being interviewed for a job they want.
If you can’t use a computer confidently it can be challenging to navigate many aspects of life. Therefore it is important to access computer training. There are so many things that you can’t do effectively without some computer skills. Even applying for a new Medicare card becomes an issue without basic computer skills.
Public libraries in most areas provide computer training, as does U3A and other community groups.
