The development of the Internet has brought us great convenience, but the elderly have become the vulnerable groups in the digital age, and it is difficult for them to quickly integrate into the changing society. The results of the survey of the elderly in X village, Ruijin city show that the elderly in the village have difficulties in mobile phone operation, distinguishment of the true and false of network information, and understanding of mobile phone function. Therefore, it is particularly important to bridge the digital divide among the elderly through group work. In the process of intervention, six group activities were designed under the guidance of social learning theory and advantage perspective theory. The research results show that under the guidance of social learning theory and advantage perspective theory, through mutual observation and learning between group members, we achieved some results in bridging the digital gap among the elderly.
