The Digital System Divide of Digital Literacy Between Older Adult Learners on University Campuses
Northern Kentucky University
There is a digital systemic divide between among older adult “learners (OAL) and learning institutions. Digital literacy is a needed skill. Some universities have omitted OAL needs. Specifically, the absence of computer skills can deter OAL from seeking an education, putting them at a disadvantage among their younger counterparts. We should have outreach provisions on campus, for this group of people. There have been 51 higher learning institutions created around the world that are age-friendly. The Survey will: assess student’s attitudes towards how older adult adjust to digital literacy assimilation on college campuses in relation to academic success.
