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.

From 21st to 24th January 2019 in the city of Bolu, Turkey, the first meeting of the ICT@seniors project was held. In the modern world, ignorance of modern digital means of communication, information technology that has a major advantage not only in the labor market but also in everyday life is of great importance not only for the elderly population. Unfortunately, the older age group is the most affected by the lag in this area. In many cases, the desire exists, but training opportunities are limited, both because of the lack of an institutional approach and the lack of awareness of possible learning paths and places.
