We all know how hard it is to stay up to date with the changes in technology. Imagine how hard it is for schools to keep up.DIGITAL LEARNING DAY to the rescue! “Digital Learning Day started as a way to actively spread innovative practices and ensure that all youth have access to high-quality learning opportunities no matter where they live.”There’s an entire page of my website devoted to Teachers & Librarians. In an effort to do everything I can to thank all of those hardworking educators I’ve created a list of Intergenerational Ideas to Bridge the Digital Divide. Share the list with any teachers or librarians that you know OR give some of the ideas a go with your family.

I’m presenting a four part series of talks at the Senior Planet Exploration Center (127 West 25th Street) in New York City. It would be great to see you there. Please feel free to pass this information on to a digitally-challenged loved one you think might be interested.
