Healthy Ageing: Teaching Seniors To Be Tech-Savvy

Older adults were often perceived as being less tech-savvy, but with the ubiquity of smartphones these days, it seems like some of them even surpass us in how easy they navigate the online world. But is that the case across Malaysia? How does building digital literacy help create a sense of community as well as independence among seniors? We speak to Dr Tan Yun Yi, founder of Bengkel Teknologi Senior about the work that they do in the community.
