Abstract

This paper presents a study that investigated how the older adult population in Brazil uses modern technologies for learning purposes. The study sample included 85 Brazilian residents ranging in age from 55 to 90 years old, called in this study as "Advanced Age Adults." Based on the results of this study, the Index of Technology Usage by Seniors (ITS) is proposed to measure the amount of technology that this age group is using and the potential use of these technologies for educational purposes. The paper concludes with practical implications for the future use of the ITS.
