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.

Now let’s see what iVan’s space adventures look like.
The iVan Mothership Space Adventure Three cost $750,000 and requires space ship detachment special training. You get to G-Force climb, experience mothership detachment, atmosphere launch, and then safely glide back down to Earth.
iVan’s Space Station Voyage Adventure Four cost $70 million and requires special station living training. You get to skim the surface of moon, then go to live on the space station for a few weeks before returning to Earth.

“I bought a smart phone to make me smart, but I ain’t got smart too good, yet? But. I did quit smoking that Smart cigarettes cause I likes the Beets Cigs brand better now.”
In the town of Smartville 2118, smart cars drive and fly themselves around with and without passengers. Smart phones do not exist anymore because they did not make purchasers any smarter as shown by the grammar in paragraph one. People talk via tattoo like skin patches to cars, houses, and petnoids. Petnoids is a new term, I just copyrighted meaning a conversational, thinking, robotic, synthetic pet animal usually accompanied by a human or humanoid. Some humans even chat romantically with a humanoid Mr. or Mrs. Right—the newest trophy digital life partner. A humanoid is part human and part machine.
“Chance, let me see what is going on in the children’s play space.” The name of this Nano-house is Chance. The house can only care for its 2 homeowners and up to 2 children. Children can be human, humanoid, and synthetic. I see that this newest Nano-tech housing development is magnificently teched-out with its own artificial intelligence operating systems for everything needed for activities of daily living. Strangely, there are no pharmacies like there used to be on every corner. There are mega-senior centers that look like Disney magic kingdoms and church buildings still around, though. It is enough to make one wonder how we ever survived the prehistoric, non-Nano-tech digital ages!
