Does anyone teach adult learning, or senior citizens?

I'm considering a later in life career / side job of teaching seniors or older adults about technology. My experience is wide reaching from smart phones to e readers, home computers, social media, home voice technology. I have experience mainly as a user though.

In the past I have prepared a presentation and given a couple of talks to a group I am in about how to use Facebook effectively and safely.

I have also led girl scout troops, and assisted as they created presentation about digital awareness.

Lots of senior centers around here have classes like that. The bad news for you, if you are thinking of a second career or side job, is that they are often run by volunteers.

Fact is, it’s becoming less and less common for seniors to need help with technology. Almost anyone I know under the age of 75 or 80 is pretty competent with it. Not sure how old you are or how much later in your life you are thinking...but I think the time will come fairly soon.when the job of teaching seniors technology is obsolete.
