The study of older adults and internet use has emerged as a specific area of interest which covers a wide range of topics ranging from behaviors of senior adults in information search to attitude toward the internet, to the use of the internet for personal and health issues, and to cognitive constrains of seniors in Internet use.

Engaging Older Adults with Modern Technology: Internet Use and Information Access Needs takes a structured approach to the research in aging and digital technology in which older adults' use of internet and other forms of digital technologies is studied through the lenses of cognitive functioning, motivation, and affordances of new technology. This book identifies the role and function of internet and other forms of digital technology in older adult learning. It also bridges the theories with practices in older adults' internet/digital technology use by focusing on effective design and development of internet and other digital technologies for older adults' learning. This title is targeted towards educators globally with an emphasis on diverse aspects in older adult and internet learning that include learner characteristics, cognition, design principles and applications.

Review:

In this volume aimed at educators, social workers, medical professionals, researchers, and policy makers, Zheng et al. (educational psychology, U. of Utah) compile 14 chapters that examine the role and function of the Internet and other digital technologies in older adult learning through the perspectives of cognitive function, motivation, and the benefits provided by new technologies, as well as principles of instructional design and new ideas for the needs of older adults. Contributed by researchers, practitioners, and theorists in teaching and learning, instructional design, computer-human interaction, cognitive psychology, and other disciplines from universities in the US, Asia, and Europe, the chapters address cognitive architecture, working memory, gesture visualization, and social collaboration; instructional design, with discussion of cognitive load theory, everyday technologies, age-related changes, and cognitive constraints in e-learning; and practical aspects, such as the impact of computer and Internet use on quality of life and autonomy, mnemonic interventions to improve memory, adoption of technologies, the benefits of e-health, the use of remote care delivery technologies, and the use of tele-health technology to support caregiver training. --Annotation 2012 Book News Inc.
