A world where everyone has the means, support, and tools to engage with technology.
Through the creation of tools, outreach with the community, and working directly with older adults, we aim to provide the resources, education and tools to help everyone feel comfortable using 21st Century technology.
At EnTech computer club, we support people in reaching their goals with technology.
Our main focus is on delivering quality technology education and support to those in retirement homes. We use our curriculum documents to foster independence and flexibility with technology. We work with seniors in reaching their technology goals to contact their families and friends, find videos on YouTube, and generally browse the Web.
We also work to redesign products to focus on accessible user interfaces by directly developing new hardware and software.
Who are we?
Our team consists of University of Waterloo students studying in every faculty, allowing for cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation.
Our curriculum is designed such that anyone with a computer can pass on the skills to help seniors effectively navigate technology. This includes laptops, iPads and desktop computers.
We would love to hear how you have used our curriculum - please get in touch with us if you've used any of our content!
Thrice yearly we open up applications to join our club. Applications are currently open!
