How seniors learn digital skills in the Nordics and Baltic?

Welcome to read about our Nordplus Adult projects:

  • NPAD-2020/10169: How seniors learn digital skills in the Nordics and Baltic? and
  • NPAD-2021/10187:DIGITAL SUPPORT: Guidelines for training the trainers to support seniors towards making daily life more easy in digital world,
which have been funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The first project was organized under the project period 09/2020-08/2021 and the second one starts in September 2021 and ends in December 2023. Both projects are coordinated by the Summer University of Jyväskylä.

Aim of the projects is to strengthen and develop co-operation between Nordic countries and Baltic region on life-long learning for seniors and to learn and share ideas of digital skills teaching for seniors in different countries. During the first project participants learnt to know institutions who were taking part this project and the education on digital competencies, which they provide for seniors. Also the presentations in meetings covered also topics like digitalization in different Nordic and Baltic countries as well continuos learning in general. Ideas and knowledge was shared to each other and the good practices adapted to own work at the local level. During the second project project partners will create an online portal, where they present their good practices of teaching seniors on digital competencies. This free and easy accessible portail is addressed to all actors in the Nordics and Baltic, who work in the field of adult (senior) education.

Both pedagogical staff and representatives of adult students or voluntaries (seniors) from each organization take part in the project work.

Expected outcomes of our projects are sharing ideas of teaching digital skills and themes for new courses. Other important aspect of this project is to find new partners and get the possibility to continue partnership in the future.
