Skyline College’s Phi Theta Kappa members developed a program called Computer Literacy and Internet Competency for Seniors (CLICS).

The research that the students did showed older adults can actually get some of the greatest benefits from computer use. The internet can prevent social isolation and provide mental stimulation. Moreover, people can remain independent because they can do many of their chores such as shopping and bill paying online.

During the summer, our students led workshops on smartphones, tablets, and computers for seniors at the Magnolia Senior Center. Our remarkable students taught their students in 11 different languages.
