ALVARENGA, Glaucia Martins de Oliveira; YASSUDA, Mônica Sanches  y  CACHIONI, Meire. Digital inclusion with tablets between elderly: methodology and cognitive impact. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.2, pp.384-401. ISSN 1645-0086.

Currently, studies on aging and ICTs have progressed significantly. This study was designed with the purpose of describing a digital inclusion intervention with tablets, performed with the elderly of an UnATI. The 62 elderly subjects were divided into three groups, one intervention and two controls: intervention group that participated in learning workshops with tablets and applications; group of social activities, without investment of teaching of new intellectual abilities; control group that did not receive intervention during the application of the research, but participated in the pre-test and post-test. Participants were interviewed through an evaluation protocol and a sociodemographic questionnaire and, at the end of the course, and evaluated through a satisfaction scale adapted to the tablet version. The information obtained through the application of the instruments was initially submitted to descriptive statistical analysis. It is a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, intervention and post-test evaluation. Although there was little effect on the MMSE, there was an improvement in the distribution of the results to the intervention group with reduction of the standard deviation and reduction of the amplitude of the scores. Participation in the intervention group resulted in a better performance in general cognition, attention, executive functions, visuospatial abilities and decrease of depressive symptoms. In relation to the intervention group, it was observed that this technological tool can be useful to increase levels of performance in several cognitive areas. In the daily life of the elderly can provide conditions for him to be able to perform autonomously.
