Closing the tech gap

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. If you've ever had trouble getting your smartphone, tablet, or laptop started, AARP Colorado and Fruita Monument High School students may be able to help you out.

Age isn't the only differnece between children and adults.

There's also a pretty significant technology gap that many Mesa County residents are hoping to close.

Fruita Monument High School students will be volunteering their time this weekend to teach adults the ins and outs of social media and modern technology.

"if they didn't feel so intimidated by technology, they would better be able to deal with the world today."

Adults are finding it increasingly more important to keep up with technology to monitor their children's safety on the web and to advance their own careers.

The technology workshop will be held at the Fruita Community Center, Saturday, April 12th from 9:30 A.M. to noon and walk-ins are welcome.
