As the Covid 19 pandemic unfolded, isolating some communities more than others, it became evident that the elderly group was significantly affected by the lockdowns. And the only way to avoid this situation was by staying connected. As a result, the ST Foundation decided to create video courses for this particular audience to assist them in familiarizing themselves with technology.
The pilot project of the T4S took place between May and September 2021 at Fondazione Casa Famiglia San Giuseppe in Vimercate. Twenty-two beneficiaries attended the courses organized with the support of the organization’s educators.
Let’s listen to Anna’s first impressions, an educator at the Day Care Center for the Elderly, who helped us manage the classes with our students.
