SeniorNet Community,

 

We are in our 30th year and it has been a fulfilling journey. Below are a few announcements to celebrate our Anniversary --- there are more to come before the end of the year.

 

Volunteer of the Year Award - In February Center Leaders were given criteria and guidelines for this award. Their submissions will be reviewed by the Board of Directors and one volunteer will be selected - to represent all of SeniorNet. The award winner will receive monetary and technology recognition. This prestigious award will be announced in May 2016.

 

Curriculum Contest 2016 - The curriculum contest (whereby centers create and submit instructional materials) has generated fantastic results for the past two years. All centers have the opportunity to benefit from the dedication and sharing of volunteers. The curriculum submitted by centers will be stored in Leadership Exchange for all of our centers to access and use. Winners will receive monetary and technology awards. The details and criteria will be announced in June.

 

ADOBE 14 - The new releases of PSE and PE will be distributed to centers this year. A formal announcement will be made via SeniorNet Newsletter.

SeniorNet Shares its Operational Model and Latest Microsoft Workshop with Chinese Delegation
 
January 06, 2014 09:50 AM Eastern Standard Time
 
FORT MYERS, Fla.--( BUSINESS WIRE)--The SeniorNet Learning Center in San Jose Willows, Calif. recently welcomed dignitaries, (pictures delegation of 14 dignitaries) from various regions in China to provide insight into how SeniorNet has become so successful and to share its operational and educational protocols. The visitors were management representatives for the Committees on Aging in China from the national level and throughout 12 provinces and municipalities.
 
The delegation, which attended a Microsoft Windows 8 workshop, saw firsthand how class content and curriculum is developed using surveys of intended students, as well as SeniorNet's extensive use of volunteers in the teaching process. Drawing on local resources such as tech company retirees, community facilities and donated equipment, SeniorNet minimizes its need to conduct massive fundraising activities that strain limited resources by partnering with major corporations such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, Que Publishing and others who help fulfill its mission.
 
Ms. Li Shumei, Deputy Director, Heilongjiang Provincial Committee on Aging said SeniorNet has, "a very good self-support education model without relying on budget and tendency of bureaucratic management. Such a model would help the still developing China develop more educations centers alike. It is a valuable example."
