Smart thinking, this. In a one-of-a-kind pilot project, Chiba Prefecture, an IT company based in Kashiwa, Japan, is employing silvers living in care homes to teach Japanese to people overseas via online video calls. As website news.asiaone.com tells us, it’s a win-win situation either way—while it gives the silvers a way to stay abreast with technology and remain connected with the outside world, it gives people in other countries the opportunity to learn the language from a native speaker. To make things even easier for the silver teachers, the company has installed a system that displays large-sized text on their tablets. So far, 11 silvers have joined the programme, which is ready to scale up.
