Grandpas and Data, Grandmas and Gmail: Upping up their Technological Skills

Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; Focus is on the likes of 'Baby Boomers' and 'Silent Gens', fast gaining and improving upon their mastery of modern communicative devices, social media and related technological advancements; capped with an ‘11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of Toronto - Canada by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants

Recent studies show that grandparents from several societies the world over are successfully turning to technology to keep in touch.

Travel Learn participants are particularly interested in levels of participation from selected societies and based on a set of dynamics. Preliminary study does not concur that availability of resources necessarily encourage active participation in the new age technology.
