A new article on digital ineguality and the risk of digital exclusion especially for aging adults


Dr. Katja Prevodnik, Dr. Marina Trkman, Jošt Bartol, and Dr. Andraž Petrovčič, researchers at the Centre for Social Informatics, have published an original research article titled “An Assessment of the Structural Validity and Measurement Invariance of the Web-Use Skills Scale for Aging Internet Users” in Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, a top-tier journal in the field of psychology and Internet studies.

Research on digital inequality has found that aging adults are often at risk of digital exclusion. To develop appropriate initiatives to facilitate digital engagement, it is important to obtain high-quality data on their Internet skills. A commonly used proxy measure of Internet skills is the Web-Use Skills scale (WUS), which has, however, not yet been sufficiently validated among older Internet users.
