Seminar: Older people and social media

Seminar: Older people and social media

New seminar on older people and digital isolation to be held between May the 28th and 29th in Barcelona.

The goal of this workshop is to provide an analytical space that puts together relevant actors coming from the academic, governmental, third sector, and design fields interested in debating on the potential role of information and communication technologies –especially social media– in palliating the social isolation older people may experience.

This workshop is held under the framework of the research project “Older people and social networks: Breaking with digital isolation”, supported by Obra Social “la Caixa” and in collaboration with ACUP, as part of the Recercaixa 2012 call.

Mireia Fernández-Ardèvol participates in this workshop on May the 29th with the presentation “‘Do you want to see pictures of my grandchildren?’ Some evidence to break with stereotypes“.
