    Name: ICT for Seniors’ Social Inclusion

    21st century is marked with rapid transformation and advances in technology and ICT but also low birth rate and increasing number of seniors. Today, there are new concepts for everything that seniors are unfamiliar with: new socialization methods, new ways to manage money, new ways to reserve a room, new ways to shop… Seniors are often  lost to do the simplest tasks they were so skilled in the past and these changes in society related to ICT and technology are becoming obstacles to them and contribute to their social exclusion due to digital divide. Lifelong learning is an important tool for social inclusion of seniors and active aging but to access many resources they need to be ICT literate (such as signing up for activities), have e-mail accounts and use smart phones. Therefore, these two new societal changes should complement one another, not contradict each other. Seniors should learn ICT skills and use ICT as a new means for social inclusion by learning ethical dimensions and risks as well. lack of ICT knowledge makes seniors vulnerable to risks such as victimized by fraud, sharing personal information that can endanger their safety.

    Technological trends should serve the needs of seniors’ social inclusion and to ensure this, seniors should have access to ITC, learn the new world and how to live in it. The Social Ethical and Privacy Needs in ICT for Older People focuses on this need as well as other EU initiatives.
