The vision of the Avenidas Generations Lab is to help bridge the inter- and intra-generational digital divide. Avenidas and Tech Enhanced Life agree on a partnership to jointly explore new products and services for Older Adults.
Generations Lab exists to empower older adults with technology in the following ways.
Explore, Educate, & Embrace
Add on to our traditional courses (the Avenidas Computer Learning Center has been in operation for 20+ years) and provide an enhanced curriculum that may include career skills re-training to allow for re-entry to the workplace. In addition, we will hold series of tech talks and tech fairs to further engage in the community and surrounding development companies.
Engage, Prototype, & Test
Build a state-of-the-art demo room allowing for our participants to touch, feel, and try out the newest advancements already on the market: smart homes, voice, tablets, wearables. Makers will be able to see how their products work in real-life with an active, older adult population.
Shape & Influence
Interact with Software Developers and Makers to influence early stage products to allow for their product to be most useful for a growing population.
Design & Build the Avenidas Virtual Community Center
Develop a platform for a virtual older adult community center, built on the Avenidas brand providing a platform that will provide older adults services that are trusted, vetted and trained, regardless of their physical location.
