First-time Internet Users Find Boost In Brain Function After Just One WeekPosted: October 31, 2009
A study by researchers from the University of California found that when seniors aged up to 78 in their research test group spent just 7 hours over a 2 week period surfing the Internet it resulted in a boost in their cognitive functions. This great article was published in Science Daily, and the full story appears in the link below.
This is great news for older folk online, particularly as (in my experience), their self confidence with technology can be low and they make assumptions about it being ‘a young person’s game’. I will be addressing a group of older vision impaired learners at the University of the Third Age in 2 weeks time around social media, so I am looking forward to sharing this article!
