Technology Innovation in Learning and Teaching (TILT), formerly Instructional Support and Development, is a division of the Learning and Technology Resources (LTR) Division. On May 1, TILT hosted its first Digital Learning Day for the Maturals, lifelong-learning senior citizens.
Cyber Seniors participated in breakout sessions to learn about Facebook, Twitter, iPad basics, navigating the computer/Internet and digital video editing. Team TILT and six Alexandria Campus student volunteers made sure that each participant received personal support while learning the 21st century technology tools of their choice.
Lew Carr, one of the Maturals stated, “Both Joan (the self-described “Techno-saur”) and I so much appreciated the Digital Learning Day for Maturals this past Friday. The (TILT) staff along with volunteers did a wonderful job.”
TILT Coordinator Kirstin Riddick stated, “The Maturals Digital Learning Day was an amazing cross-generational afternoon of fellowship, fun and learning.”
The TILT team will continue to conduct Digital Learning Days as a way to collaborate with Maturals to bridge the digital divide. Team TILT would like to thank the Maturals, NOVA student volunteers and all involved for making the inaugural Digital Learning Day a success.
