At the end of October we sent out an email request to SiDE Pool members with email addresses.

We asked them to complete a survey regarding their motivations for taking part in research...

Welcome to the SiDE Project – Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy

We are building a Research Pool of older people across Scotland and North-East England. We are particularly interested in older adults because they are more likely to have missed out on technology at school or work. Older people also make up the biggest percentage of the population now and it is vital we learn from their experiences.

  • We need your help to make sure that we understand how technology helps or hinders your life.
  • We want to improve computer technology in order to make it more useful and usable for older adults.
  • We need to listen to the opinions and experience of people from all walks of life
  • We want to talk to people who love technology, people who hate it and everything in between.
  • We want to know what people like and dislike about various technologies, from computers and mobile phones through to digital TV & radio.
