You know, Miss Avon, us kids aren’t the only ones who need good digital education skills. Is there an approved, good digital education class going on out there for older grownups like my neighbors and grandparents? They will probably attend if it meets in a physical location most of the time rather than just online.
Answer: Digital citizenship for grownups like grandparents and elderly neighbors may not yet be the title of a course that meets mostly on site. It is a good idea, though.
There are adult technology classes that incorporate digital citizenship skill building lessons. And, yes, the class(es) may have onsite, online, or a hybrid mix of online and onsite availability. Classes are usually available at your local community college, senior center, public library, or university OLLI program.
Self-Driving & Self-Flying cPods—Ready, Get in & Let’s Fly Away More New Senior Center Transportation
by Dr. Katie Canty, Ed.D. of Senior Tech Academy firstname.lastname@example.org
iPod used to be a thing. Now it is going to be the cPod Canty Mobile hover craft car. The cPod looks like a smaller version of a Smart Car, but it is self-driving, and talks to you and to other cPods on the road or in the air.
The cPod Canty Mobile can ride you along on street level. But, when traffic gets too congested, or if you just want to ride the friendly skies, a hover attachment can be summoned to your location. The cPod attachment locks onto your cPod, lifts you out of traffic, and flys you away to your destination much quicker. The only drawback of the cPod Mobile is the fact that the face picture on your driver’s license is what the cPod’s exterior looks like. Image your driver’s license face rolling down the highway or flying the friendly skies! Yes, you have just been introduced to another Professor Canty under construction invention that joins the iVan and iVanna line up of self-drivers and now self-flyers!
iVan and iVanna might be part of a potentially new series of artificial intelligent vans. The “i” means that the vans are intelligent, smart, nursing assistants, and self-driving. The iVan and iVanna series will be for seniors who do not drive, do not want to drive, or who have limited mobility or transportation situations. The iVan series replaces gas fueled transport vans and the iVanna series replaces wheelchairs.
Neatest iVan and iVanna Features
iVan: There are 4 to 16 seats in the iVans and each seat can detach and roll out to pick you up and take you back to the van. The iVan chair detaches and rolls up to your door, buzzes you, does a facial recognition security scan, helps to seat you, then rides you back to the van, seat belts you, locks back in place, and continues on to the next stop. While in route, you have the option of asking the chair to monitor your vitals and to send a report to you, a caregiver, or family member.
iVanna: Once your destination is reached, iVan reminds you to gather your belongings because iVanna, the super model of artificial intelligence chairs that walk, has been alerted and is waiting to travel with you like a personal assistant companion throughout the day during your 9 AM to 1 PM senior center activity day. Enjoy your day of safe travel a lot more with iVan and iVanna—that is, when these new Dr. Canty inventions become reality!
