Kevin commented on Learn from 'The Hotline'

I love this idea because it combines "Old School" telephone technology with new digital technology. I think many seniors would rather speak with an actual person as opposed to an email or digital format.

This is a good idea, and it can also be modified to use a crowdsourcing approach to accomplishing specific tasks.

Kevin commented on Senior Tech Support

I like the idea of youth creating videos for seniors. They could use Vines or YouTube to deliver short informative tech videos. You can also ask children to create videos for their grandparents from a list of topics created by the seniors themselves. This idea can also be partnered with phone call assistance to ask questions that may arise from watching the videos.
