Smart, Starmobile bridge the gap between millennials and seniors via technology

Local tech brand Starmobile has collaborated with Smart Communications to conduct a program intended for “millenniors” – a clever combination of the words millennial and seniors.

The program hosted a series of lectures for senior citizens on the basics of smartphones and mobile data, as well as how to use Facebook, in recognition to the fact that more than just for fun and taking selfies, chatting over Facebook and Messenger are the seniors’ way of keeping in touch with their families.

The lecture was spearheaded by the Smart Public Affairs team, while student-volunteers from the Computer Science department and Integrated Community Extension services of Adamson University assisted the elders in navigating their smartphones, including the Starmobile PLAY and Starmobile UP series.
