This study explored the optimal training method for using GPS. Sixty older adults with no GPS experience were assigned to a video tutorial group, one-to-one training, or control. Results indicate that the one-to-one training significantly improved performance compared to the other conditions. Results are discussed in terms of being significant for the promotion of healthy aging, OT, and the importance of using hands-on training when teaching older adults to use technology.
