SenGuide is an international project funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme.
In the predecessor project, GrandExpertS, older people were trained and supported to create digital learning materials and share them with others online. Based on their knowledge and experience from work and leisure, they acted as experts in one specific area. In SenGuide, the experiences from GrandExpertS will contribute to improve the learning experience. In our participatory approach, participants will still be given the opportunity to post and share their knowledge content online, but this project will also investigate other learning management systems (LMS) to find out which is the most user-friendly system for this age group. The results will then be made available to a wide audience across Europe.
Digital skills are increasingly important in today’s society and contribute to active ageing. This became particularly clear in the Corona pandemic, when people could only meet virtually and educational opportunities were completely transferred to the digital world. Only those who had the appropriate digital skills were able to actively participate, this trend is expected to continue in the future of our society.
