Wilson-Nash C & Tinson J (2021) How older people are mastering technology to stay connected after lockdown. The Conversation. 18.08.2021.
First paragraph: It’s a well-worn stereotype: the image of an elderly person fiddling with technology that leaves them completely bamboozled. The media often depict older people struggling to use or manage digital technology. While this is often designed to be humorous, it can undermine them as users of technology. And that’s a problem if it turns older people off from trying to engage with digital devices, as it can affect their wellbeing.
