We live in a world of exponentially changing technology. Never in the history of mankind have so many such advancements emerged in parallel and in combination, carrying so much impact. We can digitally access essential services such as healthcare, online banking, and e-commerce all at the click of a few buttons. Staying connected virtually is proving vital for our emotional and mental health. While most of us have adapted to the new lifestyle, it must come as no surprise that these benefits remain limited to a section of our population. Only those who own and know how to operate smart devices can genuinely reap the benefits of this new digital world. This prevailing global digital divide deprives many of our loved ones to have a connected and inclusive digital social experience.
The prevailing global digital divide attributes to social isolation, loneliness, boredom, increased dependency, and helplessness and significantly impacts boomers. Every day on average 10,000 people turn 65. The BoomerEm is a non-profit organization and our mission is to bridge the global digital divide by empowering boomers (50 years old and above) to have a more connected and inclusive digital social experience through capacity building and education. Our community allows individuals to connect, learn, and grow based on their tech readiness, openness, and learning style.
Step-by-Step customized learning is delivered through innovative sessions and workshops in categories such as but not limited to leisure and culture, smart devices (phone, iPad, computer, HomePod, AlexaDevices, etc.), and e-commerce. These sessions are a combination of basic, intermediate, and advanced levels of digital technology mastery. Whether you are a beginner who wishes to learn how to share photos, videoconference with loved ones, or an expert who wants to advance their knowledge by connecting with other like-minded individuals, our diverse global community welcomes you.
One-on-one coaching is available from an expert Tech Advisor to assist you with your personalized needs. Whether it is a technical question about how to set up your new gadget - iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Alexa Devices, etc., or an application (Zoom, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft Office, WhatsApp, Airbnb, DoorDash, Uber, etc.) that you are curious to learn - we are here to support you in your journey. We understand that navigating the new digital technology world can be complex and even sometimes frustrating, our empathetic advisors aim to make this transition to e-lifestyle easy for you. Flexible learning resources such as step-by-step guides, technology tips, healthy aging blogs, and tech talks with global experts in the industry are available to you for FREE after you become a member of our community. Become a member now to start availing these exclusive member benefits, and you may cancel anytime, if you wish, without any obligation.
