Web 2.0 for young and old

2011-06-06:

A pilot project by Salzburg Research in the senior center “Walser Birnbaum” shows how the use of weblogs and podcasts can enrich the lives of old people every day and contribute significantly to stay intellectually fit. The seniors do this by jointly creating not only a form of community, but also have learned to deal with new media without prejudice and fear. As of now the co-developed website, including an online blog, is open to the public at www.zentrumwalserbirnbaum.at.

The entire press release and photos are available in the press area.
