NEW TECHNOLOGIES / OLD PEOPLE


** Liz : New technologies and old people (1) **
Langue : Anglais, niveau : B1 - par  Liz (London, England) - 15 avril 2012

** Liz : New technologies and old people (2) **
Langue : Anglais, niveau : B1 - par  Liz (London, England) - 15 avril 2012
She thinks that a good idea would be to have a computer in all retirement homes since old people are capable of learning things.
It could be some computers adapted to special needs for example.

Langue : Anglais, niveau : B1 - par  Liz (London, England) - 15 avril 2012
Mobile phones could also be useful for old people, if they weren't so small. Adapted phones would be good.
