Abstract

The proposed paper will address the needs of the elderly learner and the place of technology, most particularly the computer, in enhancing the life of the older learner. A model will be discussed that illuminates the steps in the process of learning. The model will be used as a way of analyzing and providing aid specific to common difficulties of the aged. Suggestions and recommendations will be proposed that facilitate the elderly learner's use of the computer. One of the assumptions underlying the model is that the fundamental interests of the learner will be discerned and, with careful preparation by the teacher, motivation will follow.
