Sites/Resources for older users

I am in the process of preparing an informal coffee'n'chat session with a group of sheltered residents, who have expressed an interest in becoming digital champs. I'm planning to show them a few "How To" sites, (Learn My Way, Digital Unite, Community How To), as well as a couple of local history archives. I'll also be asking them to show us their favourite sites.Does anyone have any suggestions of other sites/resources they have used to prick the interest of older net users?See More
