New scheme aims to bridge digital divide by bringing elder New Zealanders and young people together

Review: Today Kate Nicol-Williams reports for TVNZ on a new one-year pilot launched today by Digital Seniors that uses younger people to teach elder New Zealanders about how to use technology.

The idea is to alleviate loneliness of the elder New Zealanders by enabling them to use technology to connect with others, such as family and friends.
