Abstract: The popularization of Internet access in home context has been making elderly people and others with no computer literacy to become more motivated to learn and to use those services. This paper presents a case study elaborated to get information on how Brazilian elderly are becoming computer literate, what are their difficulties and challenges to adapt themselves to the use of popular technologies nowadays. The goals of this research are to identify educational difficulties still faced by elderly in the learning process of home computer technologies, as well as to identify which main topics in the technology design are working as limiting factors for that process. We discuss the results, and describe a futuristic scenario to illustrate new paradigms of interaction built over the same previous concepts. We believe that keeping elderly motivated to learn could possibly contribute to increase the digital inclusion.
