Connected Older Adults: Conceptualising their Digital Participation
MetadataShow full item record
Older adults' experience of the digital divide is apparent and under explored. This paper presents a model for conceptualising older adults' digital participation by positioning self-efficacy theory, digital competence and personal learning environments together. In proposing the model we seek to illuminate a pathway toward digital participation for older adults that is afforded by developing digital self-efficacy. Following the overview of our model, we exemplify our steps towards a research agenda that seeks to examine this model by outlining the current study we are undertaking.
