Abstract: When developing various ICT solutions to support people’s well-being, the systems are quite often based on the use of computers or smart phones. However, in different age groups, the skills to use ICT can vary; therefore, not all people can use new technical systems. The aim of this paper was to investigate the self-reported use and know-how of the ICT-technology in different age groups and using the answers to the following questions: ‘how often do you use a desktop computer at leisure?’ and ‘how well do you know the desktop computer?’. The study was carried out as a cross-sectional study by posting the questionnaire to 15,000 working-age Finns. To the question ‘how well do you know the desktop computer?’, 22% of the 20-30 age group answered ‘very well’ and 19.1% of the 31-40 age group also replied ‘very well’. In the 41-50 age group, the value was 15.7%, and in the age group 51-60, the value was 10.6%. In the future, when new well-being ICT technology is developed, it is important t o take into account that older people do not know as much about ICT as younger people. (More)
