Dear Jaroslaw,

Bárbara Barbosa Neves has done some work connected with that age group. Try checking her articles to see if her methodological choices can help your research:

• Neves, Bárbara Barbosa & Fausto Amaro (2012). Too old for technology? How the elderly of Lisbon use and perceive ICT. The Journal of Community Informatics, 8 (1).
