You, Me & Everyone we Know - social networking for older people #dtlater - 0 views

  •  
    "his design study looks at how social networking technology can better support older people in maintaining connections to the individuals and groups that mean the most to them. People over 60 tend to use the internet in different ways to younger people and most current social networking sites offer little incentive for them to engage. An older person is more likely to use the internet for information rather than social communication or entertainment, currently the primary focus of many sites."

Social technology in later life - moving from exploration to cooperation #dtlater - 0 views

  •  
    "n summary: the dtlater exploration showed a lot of action in the field of social technology and later life, but also suggested that more could be achieved through great cooperation. As a next step we are going to experiment with some active social reporting and network building to try and show how that might be possible. It's an adhoc initiative by the team who have now completed the first phase of work."

Worries about later life - and are there solutions in technology? | Ask a gran | Gransn... - 1 views

  •  
    "With our very nice friends at the Nominet Trust, we're asking what are gransnetters' big worries about the future? Being ill, needing care, getting lonely etc? (Yes, I know, bundle of laughs, but there is an upside....)

    We're also asking how technology has helped you, not necessarily with anything to do with getting older, which we're all doing, but just how it's improved your life. "

Dementia friendly? The digital onslaught. In the shoes of… Gill's Mum :) | Wh... - 1 views

  •  
    "As cheque books are phased out, pensioners who believe in "real money" are more and more likely to carry cash, with all the security risks that this involves. Special rates for on-line payments (including the escalating fuel bills) are penalising older customers financially, and I'd argue equally importantly, in unnecessary loss of independence.

    Anyway, I asked Mum what SHE thinks. These are her words, typed up on her computer  (no, she doesn't tell you that bit!) but she had forgotten how to "save" it and gave it to me printed out…."

Is age really the issue in later life? | Nominet Trust #dtlater - 0 views

  •  
    As part of its ongoing open consultation, Nominet Trust brought together a group of experts this past week to think about how technology might be used to realise new opportunities - and address the persistent challenges such as social isolation, access to adequate care and pensioner poverty - facing people in later life. We weren't looking at how adding digital might make existing services more cost-effective or efficient; nor were we seeking specific solutions. Instead we were hoping to define some areas that would benefit from social innovation with technology.

Business can click with silver surfers - The Irish Times - Mon, Oct 29, 2012 - 1 views

  •  
    It is estimated that approximately 70 per cent of Europe's wealth is in the hands of the over 50s. In the last 20 years, consumption within that age bracket has risen three times as fast as the rest of the population. By the same token, the latest research carried out in Ireland showed that only 25 percent of over 50s in Ireland have IT skills.
    Yet there is no massive push on the part of advertisers and marketers to get older people online. Surely with the massive growth of online advertising and by extension online shopping, one would assume more of that "old money" would be aimed at?"
