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, & Jaime Fonseca (2013). Coming
of (old) age in the digital age: ICT usage and non-usage among older
adults. Sociological Research Online. 18(2) 6 (Sage).

• 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).
