Computer Use: An Essential Skill [Video – 1:54] (2013)

This brief animated video uses a lighthearted approach to illustrate both the importance of computer skills and the fact that no-one is ever too old to learn.

The viewer sees a hand using a felt-tipped marker to produce sketches that appear on a white screen. They show an older man reading the job ads in a newspaper, then looking rather nervously at an elaborate computer.

His wife shows him a brochure for continuing education programs, and within a short time, he has learned the computer skills he needs to find a new job.

Meanwhile, the narrator points out that old dogs can learn new tricks, adding that in today’s world, 60 is the new 30.
