Catching up with Computing

Moira Stephen

Editura: Prentice Hall
In the year 2000, 45% of the population are over 50.7% of people aged 50-64 have tried the Internet (3% in 1996)2% over 65 have tried the Internet.These numbers are increasing rapidly. Research by Microsoft suggests this is the biggest growth market for new technology and the popularity of the Hairnet organisation in the UK has supported this. Hairnet offers older people the chance to get to grips with computing and cyberspace by offering a range of courses aimed at and taught by the over-50s.The over-50s are far more likely to have had no experience of computers at work, school, college or at home and this is becoming more and more of a disadvantage in our 'information society'. The fact that every other word seems to be www or dot-com only makes things more intimidating.Aimed specifically at the older user this book will take the mystery out of computing and will give users the confidence to use all the common applications.
