We hear a lot about what teenagers and twenty-somethings are doing
with the Web and social media. But tens of millions of senior
citizens are on the Net, too. They are building online communities.
They are Skyping with their families and with each other. And they
are finding ways to use new technologies to live healthier, safer,
more connected lives.

Hear brand-new survey results from the Pew Internet and American Life
Project. Learn about efforts to use the Internet combined with sensor
and monitor technology to enable seniors to living independently in
their homes. And discuss the latest trends in Internet use among
seniors with one of the country's leading experts on the topic.
