This paper describes a research focusing upon the difficulties those aged 70 and over face when learning to interact with the personal computer. This paper explores some of the implications of the normal aging process in the context of the cognitive demands put upon older users by the computer. This paper describes a research working towards the design of computational products that provide an aging group of people with the foundations with which to apply the knowledge they have acquired through a lifetimes experience. The paper explains how a model might be developed that could aid designers in the development of computational products inclusive of those aged 70 and over.
