Ronan commented on Use coupons to save and spend elsewhere

Hi, I think this is a good idea I just have a couple of points.

Do you think the average 76 year old man, as you mentioned, would feel confident enough to download an app and upload a picture of his driving licence to the app, because I'm not so sure.. Maybe there could be a way of tutoring them as they begin to use the app to ensure they are confident enough to use it once they are on their own? Also another suggestion could be that the money that they save by using the coupons get directly put into a separate savings account to ensure there are using the app for the correct purposes and make sure they start to save money! 


Ronan commented on Lessons with High Schoolers

I really like this idea as I can see it benefitting both the students and the seniors. One question I have is if there would be a way for the website and/or teachers to monitor these lessons? Also would the seniors have the opportunity to give feedback to the website about their experience?



Ronan commented on Piggy Bank Revisited

Hi ..
Although I like the idea, I think that based on the initial question, you need to focus on the 50 + age group of today and not of the future as this is the age range this project is meant to mainly benefit? Are there any ways in which you can incorporate this idea to include those 50 and older.?
