URBANA -- Senior citizens are getting a lesson in technology. Informatics is a club at UI.

Every Friday, they go to the Clark-Lindsey Retirement Village. Students pair up with residents to help with their technical needs, whether it be with their smartphones, tablets or computers.

One resident's goal for the day is to learn how to download eBooks onto his Kindle. There were more than ten students there to help.
