LINGUISTIC DIVERSITY AND SPECIFIC CONTENTS TO ADDRESS CULTURAL ISSUES the project respects Europes linguistic diversity, producing results in several languages and appropriately addresses cultural issues and specific didactical contents taking in account the characteristics of the elders and of the Internet services available in each country the exploitation of the results will be further increased by the start-up of a virtual community, among experts and local coordinators, to share experiences through a cooperative learning approach
WHAT WE ARE WORKING FOR... MODULAR APPROACH TO GUARRANTEE HIGH RATE OF TRANSFERABILITY it will be ensured mainly by the modularability of the training units and the possible application in every European country with very little adaptation (the latter concerning the contents of the on-line services provided locally)
WHAT WE ARE WORKING FOR... LOW COST & LOCAL STAKEHOLDERS TO ALLOW HIGH LEVEL OF SUSTAINABILITY guaranteed by the low level of investments required to launch the initiative and to the easy adaptation of the products to new contexts, places and periods of time (all materials must be in the local languages) We want to identify the actors concerned and inform them of ways and means of using e-learning for promoting digital literacy and thereby contribute to strengthening social cohesion and personal development
WHAT WE ARE WORKING FOR... direct beneficiaries : the elderly (over 55) for the reasons explained above; VET, secondary upper school and university students, who will improve their skills and knowledge in using Internet, acquire teaching skills in a one-to-one support environment and will better understand the needs, thoughts and capabilities of the generation of their grandparents. intermediate beneficiaries : upper secondary school, third age universities and VET training centres staff; NGOs and other organizations active in the field of elderly care and active citizenship promotion; policy makers at regional, local and national level, who will acquire a method to promote and organize, with a very low level of investment required, opportunities of cross-generation interaction and adult population digital literacy improvement with a significant social impact; private companies which will establish new forms of cooperation with the local communities and find an opportunity to promote their products and services available on-line. public organizations and other interested institutions that thanks to the web environment will have the opportunity to access the multilingual materials developed for dissemination purposes and to organize similar experiences in their local contexts (they will be only asked to give feed-back of their actions and to share the materials that might be developed).
