Generations Come Together to Bridge the Digital Divide in 'Cyber-Seniors'

A group of seniors end up in a competition to create the most-viewed YouTube video. They are tutored in the ways of social media by a pair of high-school-age sisters who believe that online communication helps grandparents and grandkids stay close. Watch on WSKG TV Monday, November 28, 2016 at 9:00pm. 

The Inspiration
The idea for the Cyber-Seniors documentary came from a high school project that was launched by the director’s two sisters, Macaulee and Kascha Cassaday. The sisters had witnessed firsthand how learning to use the Internet had transformed their grandparents’ lives. After learning some basic skills, their grandparents were in touch several times a week by email, Facebook and Skype.
