The report argues that ICT have an important role to play in developing learning opportunities for older people in an ageing society. It points to both opportunities (e.g. more individualized learning) and obstacles (e.g. not user-friendly ICT) as well as to the need to involve all actors in the development of ICT-enabled learning tools. It concludes that holistic policies are needed to support learning opportunities in ageing societies, enabled by ICT.
