The Elderly and the Internet

Got an email from the new-ish Oxford Internet Institute promoting an upcoming talk, and thought it was interesting enough to just copy and paste:

Computers with Internet access and training were given to Elderly Australians in a project to assess the impact on their quality of life. The interviews indicated that they loved the learning experience, were proud of

their achievement and found the Internet to be a source of wonder and amazement as well as a good way to stay in touch with their loved ones. However, the questionnaire survey showed that their quality of life had decreased over the time, both absolutely and relative to a control group. What does this tell us about the Elderly and the Internet, and what does it tell us about qualitative and quantitative research.

I don’t have any specific thoughts on the matter, other than… how interesting! Wish I could check it out.
