Marianne Dee Tells Tales of Technology

Marianne Dee was nominated for best paper at this year’s Digital Economy All Hands conference for her paper on older people’s experiences of technology.

Focused on a project called ‘Tales of Technology’ this paper demonstrates the power of personal recommendation among older users of technology. Through interviews centred on technology engagement, we capture older people’s stories and use video to encourage technology adoption amongst those who are currently excluded. We illustrate the novel and inventive ways that older users are picking and choosing the technology that works for them and tell their stories as a resource for new, novice and reluctant users, as well as for researchers to learn how users view, and are active within, the digital world.
