Abstract: The problem of learning digital skills among elderly addressed in this paper is focused on an approach focused to overcome the barriers in adoption of touch screen digital technology faced by older adults, by using the game based learning approach. The paper provides an overview of some early results and findings from an exploratory study based on use of an alternative learning approach with games enabled to facilitate the digital literacy and digital skills adoption by elderly people. The learning was carried out with designed games offered on big tablets with touch screen technology. The study results presented in the paper were collected within the project GIRDA – Gameplay foR Inspiring Digital Adoption from the European ERASMUS+ program. The paper describes the research setting, the experiments and the results that are accompanied by discussion and conclusion.
