This campaign is over! In case you missed it, here’s what happened.
40% of seniors don’t use the Internet. That can leave many feeling depressed or isolated from loved ones. To improve their quality of life, you taught older adults how to...
- Use apps on their smartphones or tablets.
- Use social media.
- Create a playlist online.
- Use video chat to connect with someone far away.
- Sign up for email newsletters.
Thanks to everyone who participated, especially these members who took their tech lessons to the next level.

Sam rocked Grandparents Gone Wired and took her tech savy skills to the next level! Here's what she had to say.
"I volunteer for a lot of campaigns to make the world suck less. I noticed my grandfather didn't know how to use the computer. So I used this campaign to try to teach him how to use the computer. Now he's connecting with old friends."
