Digital Identity – Engaging Seniors in new research

InternetNZ is seeking participants from digitally excluded groups to engage in a current research initiative focusing on Digital Identity. One of these groups is seniors (aged 65+).

Many Stepping UP partners are actively engaged in delivering programmes for seniors, whether this be Skinny Jump, Better Digital Futures for Seniors or the new Appy Seniors initiative. We are seeking your assistance in inviting seniors in your community to engage with this research.

All that is required at this stage is for seniors to complete a short online questionnaire; Internet will then select a diverse group of participants to engage in a 60-minute interview. This could be in-person (if the seniors are based in Wellington or Hutt City) or by Zoom. All participants invited to participate in the 60-minute interview will receive a $50 Prezzy card.

Please share the following link with any seniors participating in your current digital literacy programmes as a starting point:
