ERASMUS+ STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP PROJECT „DIGITAL ACQUISITION THROUGH INTERGENERATIONAL LEARNING” (DIAL)
January 17, 2018
THE ERASMUS+ STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP PROJECT “DIAL”
TEAM COLLECTS DATA ABOUT SENIOR DIGITAL SKILLS
Currently, “DIAL” team is actively working on data collection about senior digital skills in all four partner countries – Turkey, Latvia, Portugal and Cyprus. The work is done by handing out surveys that have been created by project’s team and contains four main skill blocks: computer essential, hardware, communication&collaboration and last but not least – internet skills.
The main aim of the survey is to create simple, concise and at the same time an informative educational material for all interested volunteers (i.e. grandchildren, children, friends and colleagues of the particular seniors) that are willing to teach seniors the digital skills that they lack.
The survey contains various questions about basic digital skills. Everyone who is older than 55 years of age is welcomed to become our respondent and fill in the survey online by following the link http://survey.dialproject.net/ (or maybe you can help your parents or grandparents fill in this questionnaire, so we could understand what digital skills they are lacking). The survey results will serve as an authentic material and basis for the development of all other intellectual outputs that are planned to be brought out during the project.
It is planned to collect data and process the results by February 10, 2018.
“DIAL” is an Erasmus+ strategic partnership project in the Adult Sector targeting mainly elderly people. The main aim of the project is to provide inter-generational and Life Long Learning opportunities to grandparents to acquire essential digital competences that will enable active aging and access to the e-word.
The Erasmus+ project “DIAL” is co-funded by the European Union. Find out more about Erasmus+ program on https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/node_en
