Abstract: Unesco has insisted on various essential aspects to reinforce adult education in all countries in its various international conferences about it. In its Fifth Conference, unesco confirms that information and com- munication technologies (ict) are a powerful tool for people because it improves their control and gives them access to the most precious element in this xxi century: information. Unesco deepens on the need for ongoing education training that must be done during a lifetime, not just during childhood and youth. Therefore, lifelong learning is one of the key points for a good functioning society. But it is also necessary that adults and elders acquire the digital competition so important nowadays, in order to make available to them a better quality of life. That way they may continue to be autonomous citizens. We must do not forget that ict make our lives easier to live and are present in all day-to-day areas such as government, education, private enterprise and personal level. Consequently, if elders access to ict in a responsible manner they will continue to be a part of society, so their life will have higher quality. We will see a group of citizens as case study. They noticed how their quality of life improved as they learned and applied the knowledge acquired in various computer classes. They finally found out that they can be an useful element of society and that they can keep learning new things, although they first thought that was impossible.
