The Danish Digitaliseringsstyrelse has made the decision that all Danish citizens have to use a digital mailbox by the end of 2014. Greve municipality has in corporation with ældresagen taken the initiative to the project MIT-ældre, which arranges Internet cafés for the elderly in Greve municipality. In these Internet cafés the elderly is being guided by volunteers in how to use their computers. The study investigates which parts of the lessons the old people think is good and which parts that doesn’t work good for them. The underlining basis of this study is founded in three interviews of four users of different Internet cafés. This report will show an analysis of how the old people learn the best according to Knud Illeris. On the basis of this analysis the report will try to answer how old people can be helped with their computers and which issues the volunteer has to have in mind when they guide the users of the Internet cafés. Furthermore there will be a discussion of the theory in this report to see how it is in accordance with the empirical knowledge with focus on the motivation to participate in the Internet cafés.
