Abstract

This pan-European project, involving England, Scotland, Germany, the Netherlands and Slovenia, has questioned whether current approaches to introducing new technologies are the best way of enabling older people to learn about and use technology in their everyday lives. The project team are therefore exploring whether learning based on self-directed interaction and supported engagement can enhance the opportunities for older people to engage with new technologies, generate new insights and applications of
technologies and identify potential future applications for new technologies that can enhance the health and wellbeing of older people.
