Digital Life Learning

Cooperation partnerships in adult education

Today’s EU and global societies are undergoing fundamental changes, such as the ageing of populations and digital innovation. Digital Life Learning bases its foundations on the premise that digital innovation can be an opportunity to improve the quality of life of our ageing societies and to shift towards more sustainable and inclusive health and care systems, creating economic growth and jobs.

Digital Life Learning Life’s main aim is to create macro laboratories for older citizens aged 65-74 years old with the objective of improving their digital skills. The project operates in 4 EU countries where teachers will train HEIs students, that in return will teach seniors, thus being able to obtain micro-credentials employable in the job market from this experience.

Digital Life Learning’s purposes are:

  • Get deeper understanding of older adults and their needs and wishes
  • Develop digital skills of older adults to enjoy fuller and more independent lives
  • Foster and develop coaching and teaching skills for university students through digital knowledge transfer to older adults
  • Develop a micro-credential system recognition
  • Promote a more socially included life for old people

Digital Life Learning main activities are:

  • Surveys on digital literacy of older people and project report
  • Presentation events and final conference
  • Training of students and older people
  • Release of micro-credentials
