AARP Furthers Tech through Immersive “Tech Tank” Program and CES 2023 Presence
Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) from AARP is launching Tech Tank, an innovative program that allows participants to engage with new technologies in a supportive environment. The program launched this summer at Senior Planet centers in New York City and Palo Alto, according to PR Newswire. Tech Tank will expand to Senior Planet centers across the country—including in Denver, Plattsburg and Miami—starting in 2023. In-person trainers will give older adults the skills needed to use technologies such as the Amazon Echo 8, VR headsets, drones, telepresence robots, and gaming consoles. AARP Foundation is a LeadingAge CAST Patron.
In addition, AARP highlighted age-friendly technology at CES 2023, hosting more than 20 panel discussions, said an AARP blog. AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins gave keynote remarks and joined a fireside chat with comedian and actor Seth Rogen, who founded an Alzheimer’s awareness nonprofit. She also joined a discussion with philanthropist and financier Michael Milken, focused on how technology can help fight diseases and keep people healthier longer.
