DIGITAL IMMIGRANTS

1984 – the home computer came into our living rooms and overran a whole generation. Only those who have mastered the new technologies have a future. The computer splits the society into «Digital Natives» and «Digital Immigrants». 2016 – a group of seniors is trying to adapt to the speed of the computerization in order to find their place in the digital age. Their problem is the same as ours: For how long will we be able to keep up with the rapid development?
