Biography

Tracy Mitzner is the project coordinator for CREATE at Georgia Tech. Some of her research is focused on issues related to technology acceptance. In one study, she employed focus groups to explore older adults’ attitudes about the technologies they use in their everyday lives. She also examined their differential use of technologies as a function of education and context of use. In another study, she is exploring how older adults use computers for various activities in their daily lives. She are also collecting data about their preferences for computer systems and investigating how technology experience influences those preferences. Other research she is involved with is related to human factors issues in home health care. In one study, she is exploring the difficulties home health care providers experience in performing their job tasks, including training older adults to perform health-related tasks independently.
