This paper discusses the use of Digital Storytelling workshop practices for the basic digital visual skill education of elderly women. The DST workshop that was run by the authors provided the environment to experiment with the conventional DST workshop practice for developing the digital visual skills of elder community members in a three-day-workshop, which was originally planned as a one-day-city walk experience. The reasons of such a change are discussed in relation to concepts such as gender, age and digital inclusion. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
