Towards inclusive internet communities: supporting older people

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk


As the world spends more time online, digital threats such as misinformation, scams and clickbait have become commonplace. Many of us, including but not limited to older adults, lack the internet literacy to browse with confidence. In this talk, Dr Snehasish Banerjee, Senior Lecturer in Marketing at the University of York, will highlight some of the pressing challenges facing people online and their possible coping strategies, including how audience members can help bridge the digital divide by supporting those who may not be as confident as themselves to use the internet safely and beneficially.
