Abstract
Korea ranks at the top of the ICT sector evaluation index by country, such as Internet penetration rate and speed, but at the same time, aging is rapidly progressing. In order to prevent problems such as a digital divide and information alienation that can occur in such a society, there is an increasing need for information education for the elderly. The purpose of this study is to identify the information education program classification and level preferred by that generation by surveying current information-education programs for those aged 50 and over. To achieve this aim, we surveyed and organized information education programs in Seoul, and with the help of experts and the elderly, derived the classification and level of each program. Based on this, a correspondence analysis was conducted. The results of this study showed that Microsoft Office Master and Information Technology Qualification (ITQ), Computer basics and ITQ, Excel, and PowerPoint, constitute the basic level of information education; photograph and image editing, ITQ, and computer literacy constitute the general level; and web publishing, the Internet of Things, data processing and robotics, and IT professional training make up the expert level. Based on the findings of the present study, we were able to suggest a direction for information-education programs for the elderly. © 2021 by De La Salle University.
