Summary of the project
Aim of this thematic network project 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. Each participating organization organizes a meeting for other participating
organizations to introduce its education, teaching methods and topics of digital skills. These meetings
are intended for pedagogical staff and representatives of adult students (seniors) from each organization.
Expected outcomes of this project 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. Participants are also getting know the Finnish Geronet-project coordinated by
Jyväskylä Summer University, which aims to promote seniors digital skills in the whole Finland (funded
by the Finnish National Agency for Education).
