Digital Generations Project

Digital Generations


The pandemic situation caused by COVID-19 has highlighted, now more than ever, the need for our elders to learn how to use new technologies to keep in touch with the world.

The Digital Generations project aims to provide the elderly with digital skills that will enable them to be active on the web and communicate with their loved ones. To this end, Digital Generations believes that the best teachers for this are young people, who are highly active on social media and have a great knowledge of digital tools. Thus, the project aims, through an intergenerational experience between the elderly and the youth, to empower the elders in the use of the internet, with the main objective of improving their quality of life.

To this end, the project is working on the development of various manuals and guides to support young people in this process of teaching the elderly, and to help them recognise the competences that need to be reinforced and the tools that can be used to do so.

Next, the specific objectives of the Digital Generations Project.
