“Technology Through The Ages”
Mark Metcalf talks with Nicolet High School student Ben Lawton, who has started a volunteer group to teach elderly people how to use cutting edge technology.
Benjamin Lawton, a junior at Nicolet High School, has started a volunteer group called “Technology Through The Ages.” Ben, along with his brother Max and others from Nicolet have started working with elderly people in homes for the elderly to teach them about modern technology and Internet basics like email. They’re even showing people how to use tablets.
“The idea is,” said Lawton, “We realized that there’s a lot of technology that elderly people at these homes for the elderly have access to that could really better their lives in a lot of ways, but they really don’t know how to use it.”
