Dear Kamollimsakul

The critical point in your methodology is that 2 of three instruments are
aiming at senior citizens with digital literacy. The online questionnaire is
a self-selecting instrument which will create again a sample of Internet

In my opinion it would be much better if the sample from focus group as well
as questionnaire would include both groups of senior citizens. 

Best regards

I try to write a research propal about  thai senior citizens and the
internet. This research aims to study about internet using behavior of Thai
senior citizens, advantage, and disadvantage in internet use and supporting
ways by theirs opinion. 


I want to study only thai elderly who use the internet. recently statistic,
has 77,869 older persons. 


What do you think, if I use 3 method

- questionair sent to 400 senior citizens (or more)  who pass training about
internet use.

- online questionair  

- focus group disscussion 4 groups in 4 parts of Thailands (1 group per 1


I hope  AOIR mailing list member express your comment about methodology.
