Promouvoir la culture numérique chez les seniors, ainsi que leur aptitude à utiliser des tablettes/PC

Author(s): Sonia HetznerAmrei Tenckhoff-Eckhardt and Anna Slyschak. Partout en Europe, des études montrent que l’intégration numérique reste un thème très important pour les générations plus âgées. La disparité entre le nombre d’utilisateurs jeunes et plus âgés de l’internet a légèrement diminué au cours de ces dernières années, mais elle demeure un sujet d’intérêt dans la mesure où le potentiel socioéconomique pour les générations plus âgées découlant de l’utilisation de l’internet n’a pas été étudié.

Le développement des aptitudes et des compétences numériques parmi le troisième âge reste un défi. Des obstacles socioéconomiques, techniques et émotionnels entravent ce processus.
