Dr Shailey Minocha (The Open University, UK) will introduce a current project at The Open University (http://crc.open.ac.uk/Projects/OlderPeople-BeingOnline) in collaboration with Age UK Milton Keynes, Cordia and JISC TechDis. The project involves investigating the role of on-line social interactions in supporting people aged 65 or over to avoid or overcome social isolation, and to maintain and develop social connectedness. These on-line social interactions may be via email or Skype, or participating in on-line communities such as on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
