James, D. T. D.; And Others
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v15 n1 p50-58 Jan-Feb 1996
Older adults ages 56-88 (n=12), some physically frail, were taught word processing and recorded their life histories. Older adults felt the same as a comparison younger group about ease of use, but were less confident in using computers without help. They were enthusiastic and demonstrated changes in general mental health and attitudes toward technology. (SK)
