 _Summary: a symposium on innovation, technology and later life provides confirmation that many of the challenges to making use of tech for ageing better are organisational and cultural as well as technical. We have plenty of tech - the issues are how to personalise and support use appropriate to people'​s needs and situation. But ageing organisations can't do that if they aren't using social tech themselves._ _Summary: a symposium on innovation, technology and later life provides confirmation that many of the challenges to making use of tech for ageing better are organisational and cultural as well as technical.

-I found the SEEFA symposium last week on _‘Transforming not excluding – the impact of information technology and innovation on later life’ ​_most useful because it didn't focus on innovative technology. It was more of a high-level distillation of the sort of day-to-day conversations people are having in the field. However, it could have been even more useful with some additions, including fairly standard social tech. More on that later.+I found the SEEFA symposium last week on //‘Transforming not excluding – the impact of information technology and innovation on later life’// most useful because it didn't focus on innovative technology.
