This chapter analyzes dimensions and aspects of the access and use of information and communication technologies to promote active ageing. Inserted in the interdisciplinary field of science, technology, and society (STS), we show from a review of studies and research (1) the importance of access to and difficulties arising from health information seeking, (2) some strategies adopted by elderly people using social networks, (3) the development of new capabilities and competencies for elderly people to access and use ICTs autonomously and independently, (4) the emergence of public policies and strategies for the socio-educational inclusion of the elderly population, and (5) the relevance of studies on the use of gerotechnological technologies pointing to new alternatives for the promotion of active ageing.
