Intergenerational Connections in a Digital World - thinking about digital projects

Thursday 14th March 2024, 1:30pm - 3:00pm

A short training session on planning digital intergenerational work

This session is FREE with spaces limited to 20. Book your space soon.

Bringing together older and younger people is more than a ‘nice’ thing to do, it can have long-lasting benefits for both groups. Whether it is working with a group of primary school children to interview older people about changes in their community or how to make soup or art or anything really. It gives everyone a chance to be involved and connect with each other, share stories about life. It isn’t a one-way street, older people will be learning, maybe technical skills or digital photography, and younger people may learn about interacting with older people and other skills, but the main thing is that they may be forming relationships with someone from a different generation through the medium of digital.

This session aim to build your own confidence in digital skills and show how using digital to connect generations can have some powerful lasting results. The session will look at stages in:

Planning an Intergenerational Digital connection – how to plan, where to start, how to connect, how to involve (purpose and Methodology).
Materials – what you may require.
Decision on subject and design – is it training in digital, is it use of digital to connect, is it filming?
Case Studies – we will cover some case studies which may help you with your own journey.
Accessibility- things to think about to make the sessions open to all (linking in with Abiltynet )
Challenges – Discuss with potential partners including a ‘round table’ planning session
