Montevideo, Uruguay -- Social Inclusion and New Technologies

The University of Montevideo has decided to assist the Ibirapitá project, which seeks to bring adults into the digital age through the distribution of electronic tablets. During 2015 over 30,000 retirees will receive electronic devices and a short course in how to use them.

The university’s president, Juan Manuel Gutiérrez, said that “our plan is to work in a public home for the aged, which will mean not only a support for the elderly, but also an ongoing learning process and enrichment for our students, and for the professors who are taking part.”
