This is the third in a series of ESRC funded seminars that aim to explore the concept of technological inclusion in relation to older people's experiences of everyday life.

Understanding technological inclusion in the context of diverse lives: a discourse between different ‘classes’ of the excluded. This seminar will explore what is distinctive about technological exclusion on grounds of age, disability, poverty, or lack of education.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dr Simon Holland (The Open University) will introduce and demonstrate a prototype (in development) haptic technology for rhythm and balance
Mr Andrew Stuart (CareWhere Ltd) will describe the development of a wearable gps-to-phone technology with a hands-on demonstration
Dr Shailey Minocha (The Open University) will introduce a current project to understand older people's engagement with online activities

Further speakers to be announced, and there will be time for discussion and networking.
