Today, two new infocomm learning hubs, called the Silver Infocomm Junctions (SIJ), are opened to further promote infocomm literacy among senior citizens.
This is announced by RADM(NS) Lui Tuck Yew, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Information, Communications and The Arts, and Ministry of Education at the annual Silver Infocomm Day. The Silver Infocomm Day 1 is a special day dedicated to senior citizens who embrace and use infocomm in their daily lives.
