Mobile and broadband technologies for ameliorating social isolation in older people /

by Vetere, Frank | University of Melbourne. Institute for a Broadband-Enabled ociety | Kulik, Lars | Pedell, Sonja.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2012Summary: This project aimed to examine how communication technologies can be used to help ameliorate social isolation for older people who live independently in their own homes. We provided a group of older people and their care managers with touch tablet devices (iPads), and a new iPad application ('Enmesh' ? Engagement through Media Sharing), which was purpose-built for this study. Participants used the Enmesh application to exchange photographs and messages. By creating and sharing content, the older people in our study were able to build social connections in order to help alleviate their experience of social isolation. Participants used the application for a period of ten weeks. During that time we conducted interviews and observations to gauge their experiences of using the technology. Overall, the results of the trial were very positive. For the older people in our study, the ability to record and share photographs and messages had a positive effect on participants' wellbeing and played a role in alleviating feelings of social isolation.Availability: (1)

'Mobile' Theories and Methods -- 3. The Mobilities Paradigm -- Pt. 2. Moving and Communicating -- 4. Pavements and Paths -- 5. 'Public' Trains -- 6. Inhabiting Cars and Roads -- 7.

Systems and Dark Futures.Summary: "Issues of movement - of people, things, information, and ideas - are central to people's lives and to most organizations. In this book John Urry draws upon an extensive array of new research and material to develop what he calls the 'new mobilities paradigm' for the social sciences. He shows how this paradigm makes comprehensible social phenomena which were previously opaque. He examines how 'mobilities' each presuppose a 'system' that permits predictable and relatively risk-free repetition. The book outlines various such systems and then analyses their intersecting implications for social inequality, social networks and meetings, the nature of places, and alternative mobility futures."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Older Australians and the Internet: bridging the digital divide /

by National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre.

Publisher: Braddon, A.C.T National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Includes referencesSummary: In recent years, the internet has become an essential tool for living. Whether making bookings, receiving updates on superannuation or shares, downloading university lectures or filling in government forms, the internet is the first option for more and more Australians. More people use internet-based communications to stay in touch with friends and family quickly and cheaply. Health and business services are increasingly migrating to the web, seeking lower costs and easier access. It is a profound shift in the way we live, but some older Australians are finding it hard to keep up. Older people with low internet skills are unable to conduct business or access important services over the web. They can be isolated from their community and family at a time in their lives when feeling connected is very important. In short, they are often on the wrong side of 'the digital divide'.Availability: (1)

Public funding and the values of third sector organisations : output legitimacy versus normative legitimacy. /

by Nevile, Ann.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University 2009Description: 23 p.Notes: URL: 'http://www.crawford.anu.edu.au/degrees/pogo/discussion_papers/PDP08-03.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:30:37 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "As the involvement of third sector organisations in the delivery of publicly funded services has increased, so too have debates over the effect of such collaboration on the distinctive value base of third sector organisations on which normative claims of legitimacy rest. This qualitative study based on in-depth interviews with staff from a diverse range of third sector organisations in the north of England and London, asks whether the normative legitimacy of third sector organisations is being compromised by the requirements placed on third sector organisations by external funding agencies. The study finds that third sector agencies are able to protect their normative legitimacy through a range of strategies, the most important of which is a mixed resource base; a strategy that also enables third sector organisations to engage in evolutionary innovation." -- AuthorAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
