The Mobile Communication, Economy & Society Research Program (CMES) of the IN3-UOC is hosting for the public talk Prof. Dr. Eugène F. Loos, from the University of Amsterdam, will give next April 11th in Barcelona, Spain (one of the places where the Ageing Communication Media network has presence).
The title of the conference is “Senior citizens: Digital immigrants in their own country? Debunking myths of age related information accessibility”. Population in most western countries is ageing at a rapid pace, and at the same time, these countries are increasingly becoming digitised by providing information in a digital form. The question raised by Loos is: to what extent is there an actual problem for senior citizens who are looking for accessible information? Are they really digital immigrants in their own country? The speaker will address these questions by presenting 5 common myths on the topic and will attempt to debunk them based on empirical research, which will be illustrated by documents and videos.
