Duration: September 2017-August 2019

Project Description:

An innovative up-skilling pathway programme based on intergenerational and LLL opportunities where grandparents (mainly adults over 55+) acquire essential digital competences, as defined in the Digital Competence Reference Framework of the EC (2016), with the involvement of their grandchildren thus supporting in a systemic way active ageing, e-access, social inclusion, e-participation and personal development.

The direct target group is grandparents (seniors 60+) who will acquire essential digital skills that will enable active aging, participation and access to the e-world: use of social media and communication platforms, use of smart phones and tablets, use of on-line services eetc.

The indirect target group is grandchildren who will benefit from their involvement and participation in the intergenerational learning opportunities and will share their digital competences with their grandparents in order to support them to keep in touch with the e-world.

Indirect target groups are Adult Providers, Associations and Authorities (NGOs, Municipalities, and Authorities etc.) who will benefit from the development of strategies for offering LLL opportunities to seniors and from the ICT Training for digital acquisition, up-skilling and re-skilling to be offered.

Grandparents and grandchildren will be provided with the opportunity to VALIDATE their DIGITAL SKILLS gained in the professional training to be offered, so that VISIBILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RECOGNITION AND  TRASFERABILITY of competences is achieved. Non-formal ICT providers and official validation bodies (stakeholders) will be invited to participate offering guidance and support.
