Competition for senior citizens launched during Get Online Week 2014

This year’s Get Online Week was a great occasion for Stiftung Digitale Chancen to launch a new competition in Germany. Institutions and organizations who work with senior citizens can now apply to receive ten to eight tablet computers to be used during four weeks and , they can keep two of these after for good!

Together with E-Plus Group and their branch Base we will award 20 institutions with tablet computers who want to teach their visitors or residents about the usage of tablet computers and the internet. The most creative application receives additionally a trip to Berlin.

During the Get Online Week 2014 event “my tablet computer and me” Stiftung Digitale Chancen and E-Plus Group announced the start of the competition together with the launch of the website: www.digitale-chancen.de/tabletpcs/

The Get Online Week event was the perfect occasion to disseminate the competition to the right target audience. Over 100 stakeholders, multipliers and senior citizens attended the event to learn more about tablet computers. Many broad their own tablet either to get help and ask questions or to offer support and give answers.

For many institutions such as retirement homes or clubs for senior citizens thia project is an opportunity to offer senior citizens access to digital media. Since the start of the competition on 25th of March already 20 institutions who work with senior citizens submitted their application!

Dear Masha, thanks for reminding me :).The project is at the moment localised just in Germany, it is a national competition. But as there is a big interest in projects like this there will be probably international initiative in the future. Best, Nenja
