Our Approach
Our pedagogic approach consists in teaching one step at a time, focusing during each lesson on a very specific feature while encouraging practice through homework to insure deep acquisition and gain small victories. We believe in “scalable intimacy” and while thriving to utilize technology to generate a positive impact on as many seniors as possible, we manage to sustain a direct contact with our students by organizing weekly online-meetings during which we can interact with them in order to keep a human dimension to the course. 

Audience
This course is destined to people who use the most basic features of their smartphone on a daily basis and would like to acquire more proficiency in order to communicate more easily with their environment, and especially with younger generations.
