Seminar 1

Critical perspectives on technological inclusion

This seminar encouraged a critical review of 'technological optimism' and 'technophobia' in the context of debates about e-inclusion and older people's relative non-use of some technologies. The seminar brought together older people who have different experiences of using technologies, people who provide technology-based services and devices, and academics who research and think about the potential implications of using technological innovations on older people's lives. The seminar took place at Bletchley Park, The National Code Centre (http://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/) on Friday 10th June 2011
