Aokage during the Corona time

As of December 2021, there have been no cases of the COVID-19 infection in the village of Aokage. However, it has been changing the way how the villagers communicate with their neighbours as one can see this everywhere in the world.
In the village, voluntary-based Smartphone and PC master courses have been held 41 times since 28 Jan 2020. Nowadays, the digitalised “old-old” have a good command of social media such as Instagram, LINE and other channels. This social experiment using digital platforms will present a possibility how the older generation in remote areas can deal with the lack of communication during “post-corona” time.
