Computer Users Over 60
By Lisa Pearson
May 19 2006
I am part of a group that is conducting a pilot study for a class
at the Information School at the University of Washington (http://www.ischool.washington.edu/
). We've designed a short survey to help us learn more about
obstacles people over 60 may have experienced while learning
to navigate the Internet or using a computer. This pilot study
may lead to further investigation in this area, and information
learned through this survey will guide librarians in designing
better computer courses for older adults.
NO PERSONAL INFORMATION IS GATHERED. You will NOT be contacted
regarding this survey, NOR will you be added to any electronic
lists. This is not SPAM.
Your participation is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
