Project Duration: Dec 2021 to Dec 2023

Project Description:

The ICT courses under the project of “ICT Lifelong Learning for the Third Age at PolyU” are planned for the third age members. Moreover, our tutors are third age members who understand the learners well and have attended the “train-the-trainer” course. The Institute of Active Ageing (IAA) of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) conducts 13 courses in three categories defined by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO), including government mobile applications, e-wallet,  mobile office and cyber security, etc. Each ICT course comprises five sessions to be completed within three to five weeks. Tutors and participants may use PolyU’s space and facilities on campus, e.g. wireless Internet services, for teaching and learning purposes.

Project Objectives:

  • Promote the awareness and basics of cyber security
  • Improve older adults’ information technological capacity
  • Connect our older members with the community in utilising the APPs for daily lives and health management
  • Expand the social circles of our older members
