Abstract—While current seniors citizens sometimes use
modern devices, we can’t say that they use them as often and in
the same way as young people. There is also a large number of
seniors citizens who are not educated in using modern devices at
all and those who do use them in a very different way compared
to their younger counterparts. The aim of the research is to
compare three groups of senior citizens which come from
different backgrounds, find out what are their reasons for using
modern devices and why are they important to them. Our
current experience suggests rather significant differences in
using modern technologies between those groups of senior
