We believe that enTECH is a replicable organization: the core idea of having young people help older adults use technology is a rewarding way to get involved in the community, is a lot of fun, and can make a big impact in the lives of those you help.
Knowledge translation is the process of taking academic research and knowledge, and making tools that can help everyone use the results of studies and experiments. EnTECH is in the process of performing a full study on our process and organization. On this page we will publish our full knowledge translation toolkit. Currently, we are proud to publish our curriculum documents which serve as a strong basis point for our teaching.
We are proud to present free, creative commons LICENSED lesson plans.
By providing access to these lesson plans, we hope to expand our reach and enable anyone wishing to provide technology instruction to seniors to do so. We have based our lessons off of Mozilla's 21st Century Skills, as we believe they provide a robust, comprehensive set of skills necessary to effectively use 21st century technologies. We will add more lessons as time goes on - we encourage you to check back here regularly!
As we use and test lessons and receive feedback about them, we will make changes to them, which will be reflected in the links below - please make sure to check back here to ensure you are using the most up-to-date version. We also greatly welcome feedback - don't hesitate to contact us.
