Literacy for Seniors

What is Technological Literacy for Seniors

HIEC’s Expanding Online Safety and Technological Literacy for Seniors Program promotes intergenerational mentorship as a tool to support the social participation and inclusion of seniors.

The program asks secondary and post-secondary students to develop and deliver Cyber Security and Internet Safety training for seniors in the community, allowing seniors to more confidently and safely participate in online life – from connecting with family over video calls and email, to navigating online shopping and banking.




All of the resources created as part of this program can be found below.
