The Broken Arrow Senior Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma recently hosted a “step into technology” event for seniors to learn about using their smartphones. The session was designed to educate participants on how to take better photos, manage contacts, swipe, tap the screen, and make calls on their devices.

During the event, individuals had the opportunity to have one-on-one sessions with volunteers from Leadership Broken Arrow to address any questions they had. Joan Lock appreciated learning more about the camera and storage on her iPhone, as well as understanding where her emails were stored. Participants also received selfie tips and instructions on clearing storage on their devices.

Seniors like Loreita Belding found the session to be educational and enjoyable. Belding expressed excitement about using her newfound knowledge and planned to call her friends to share her improved phone skills. Ami Bucher, the organizer and manager of the senior center, highlighted the importance of patience in teaching seniors about technology, as it can be frustrating without proper guidance. The success of the event has led to plans for future technology learning events based on feedback from attendees.
