The Light of Love Public Welfare Development Center is located in Nanjing, China. It is dedicated to the development of rural education and community public welfare.
On October 16, 2013, we opened a computer class for senior citizens. The volunteers will provide 40 class hours about computer operation to the senior citizens in the community. The curriculum aims to open a window to the world for the senior citizens. Hopefully it will also inject more fun into their lives.
Before class, our teacher gave an introduction about the content and tasks involved in the class. The teachers then communicated with the students, in order to find out how much they know about computers. Some of the students asked for more tasks.
The instructor and volunteer teacher were in the front, while the other volunteers assisted with other jobs, mainly helping the senior citizens operate the computers. Whenever anyone needed help, the volunteers would respond immediately. The students were very eager to learn and they took some notes. The volunteers were patient with their help.
Time flew by. The senior citizens were too involved with their computers to feel bored.
When the end of the period arrived, many students were reluctant to leave. They wanted to do more exercises. The senior citizens learned a lot during the period. They not only learned simple computing, but also typing.
