The learning age
Erasmus Plus cooperation partnership in adult education
NEED / PROBLEM
Great digital divide: technology advances at a high rate and senior adults cannot adapt to this rate on their own, so there are many actions that they cannot perform.
Intergenerational gap: young adults do not have the necessary social skills to interact with older seniors.
Improving the digital skills of senior adults to facilitate them using necessary digital tools and applications or those of standardized use, which will allow them to actively participate in society.
Increasing the training offer of adult education centers, with new strategies that invite people to participate in training based on the intergenerational learning methodology.
Enhancing the number of adults involved in education by designing new programs and strategies capable of attracting the attention of adults in a real way.
Direct target group: Seniors
Indirect target group: young adults, low-skilled, unskilled, unemployed or not in education or work (NEET); also, adult educators and senior center managers.
The project lifespan goes from the
1st of December 2021 to the 30th of November 2023.
An international online learning community hosting successful projects and resources based on the intergenerational learning methodology that support the introduction of this learning methodology in centers, institutions and entities that work with young adults and seniors.
Audiovisual reproduction channel, based on an active and dynamic transnational network of transmission and instantaneous interaction of knowledge and experiences among adults, seniors and young people. Tutorials will be divided per areas of interest and will also be based on key competencies, such as: citizenship, family and values, labor market and professions, life experiences, health, environment, economy, etc.
