Get Online Week 2012 in Germany

Get Online Week 2012 in Germany was organized and coordinated by  Stiftung Digitale Chancen (SDC) as the national  partner, in cooperation with the mobile network provider E-Plus, the National Libraries Association and several other partners, such as Senior Computer Clubs and telecentres.

SDC launched during Get online week a new project with Tablet PCs for senior citizens. 70 tablet devices (with telephone function) and free mobile access are given for one year to individual seniors and to senior organizations. The aim is to evaluate if a Tablet PC can stimulate the use of Internet and useful apps among groups that are not online.

While most seniors are not familiar with PC and keyboard, they face problems with eye- hand-coordination when using the mouse. Therefore it is assumed that a touch screen device can help to overcome these problems and motivate them to use the tablet PC to access the Internet.
