La exclusión digital es un fenómeno desafiante en muchos países. El bajo nivel de competencias digitales y mediáticas entre las personas mayores plantea muchas preguntas sobre la efectividad de las actividades de inclusión digital existentes. Este artículo llena un vacío relacionado con el desarrollo de competencias digitales desde una perspectiva intergeneracional. El artículo responde a las preguntas de 1) cómo promover la inclusión digital entre las personas mayores, y 2) qué papel en la promoción efectiva del desarrollo de competencias digitales pueden desempeñar los jóvenes. El estudio utilizó una técnica de entrevista estandarizada que involucró a 22 jóvenes-adultos (20-35 años) que informaron sobre once formas de promover actividades de inclusión digital entre las personas mayores y ocho técnicas relacionadas con el desarrollo intergeneracional de la competencia digital y mediática.
