AbstractBased on findings from the Value Ageing project http://www.value-ageing.eu and our projects at the OU http://www.shaileyminocha.info/people-aged-over-55-years/, we discussed how digital inclusion of older people can provide various advantages and opportunities: online socialisation and alleviating of social isolation and loneliness; maintaining, nurturing and growth of their interests and hobbies; enhancing employability and being able to sustain lifelong learning through use of MOOCs and open educational resources; and being able to use digital health wearables for self-monitoring and self-management of health.
