          Abstract

          Active participation in everyday life and social activities is essential for older adults to maintain wellbeing. The notion of “Active Ageing” brings a new angle to understand the challenges and opportunities of emerging technologies. We report results from a survey study that compares the uses and motivations of using digital music technologies amongst middle-aged and older people and quantifies the effects of motivations. Getting social connectedness is a key predictor for more frequent use and sharing with digital music technologies. Group participation contributes to higher likelihood of using digital music technologies and more frequent use. The findings were triangulated with situated use and music group activities drawn from our prior ethnographic study. We also highlighted that age was a relevant but not prominent factor in technology use and motivation.
