As a passionate advocate for enhancing older adults' digital inclusion, I explore the impact of peer tutoring on their digital skills. With four years of experience as a teacher and lecturer, I bring a unique blend of academic and practical expertise to my research. Here is what I do:

✅ As a doctoral researcher at the Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care, I have been studying digital inclusion and the effectiveness of peer tutoring in increasing digital literacy among older adults. My research has shed new light on the importance of intergenerational learning and the role of peer tutors in fostering digital skills in this demographic.

✅ In addition to my research, I'm an enthusiastic teacher with experience in educational technology, life-long learning, and continuing education for teachers. I want to empower heterogeneous learners with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in an increasingly digital world. As a teacher, I have a proven track record of success in designing and implementing effective digital training programs for learners of all ages.

✅ I'm a dynamic speaker, teacher, and researcher with a proven ability to deliver results. As a keynote speaker, I have spoken at international seminars and events on digital support and digital inclusion for seniors. My engaging and thought-provoking presentations have received positive feedback from audiences and helped raise awareness of this relevant issue.

If you're looking for an expert in digital inclusion and educational technology, look no further. I would be delighted to share my research and experience with you and help to drive positive change in this meaningful area. 🏆
