    “Bridging the Generational Digital Divide in Adult Education in the EU”
    The online European Seminar entitled ” Bridging the Generational Digital Divide in Adult Education in the EU” was organized with great success by the Educational Organization DIMITRA on Tuesday, April 20, 2021.
    In the seminar were discussed innovative learning tools aimed at enhancing the ability of adults to use digital media effectively as a prerequisite for improving their personal and professional lives, significantly reducing the trend of digital divisions between generations as developed under the ERASMUS + project – Digital Inclusion of Low Skilled Adults.
    Specialist and scientists from Greece, Sweden, Romania and Italy presented and highlighted the digital divide between the generations, as the pandemic, among other things, showed a rapid increase in this gap. Romania was represented by Associate Pofessor , PhD, Loredana Ivan, Bucharest National University of Political Studies and Public Administration, Communication Department, Chair of The European Network of Aging Studies (ENAS)
    All speakers agreed that in the post-pandemic period, local communities and states should take concrete initiatives to integrate adult people, further exploiting and strengthening their social structures, to encourage digital literacy, understanding the reality of the internet, while online transactions can be easy, reliable and secure, bridging any gap.
    Digital literacy is essential for the lives of older people in the EU in a digitized world. Individuals must be educated at all ages and acquire the basic as well as advanced digital skills in an economy and society that is constantly being transformed. At the time of the health crisis, older people felt the need more than ever to connect with their loved ones (grandchildren, children and friends), to ask for reliable information on health issues that were and will be up to date, to negotiate through new technologies (product markets and banking).
    The required strengthening education and training structures, best practices and organizational changes, through innovation and resources available, can help older people out of social isolation, making the internet more friendly and more accessible to all.

        OUTPUT 2 of the project: DINSAD TABLE GAME.
        The four partner countries will produce: 1 board game with its methodology, guidelines for mentors and players, 4 national game validation reports, a European game validation report.
        The Game aims to strengthen adults’ capacity to efficiently use digital instruments as a precondition to improve their personal and professional lives, reducing significantly the inter-generational digital divide trend.
        The game consists of 6 fields, each field corresponds to a new topic for study. Each field includes tasks that participants must complete using cards that will help players – through images – to become familiar and memorize the steps to reach the goal.

Learning to use computers and technology has never been easier, at any age.
Purpose of the game:
● Participants will learn about basic methods and principles of work with the computer and the Internet, get theoretical knowledge;
● Participants gain practical knowledge of how to work with computers and the Internet by themselves
● Participants acquire computer and Internet skills to help with everyday life (utility billing, online banking, online shopping, emailing, etc.).
The Dinsad board game will help players memorize each step with the help of images and symbols

(January 2021)
The Dinsad project partners have completed the definition of the board game content. Everything is decided: colors and fonts, images and tasks. We are working on the translations and in a few weeks, the game will go to print, ready for testing. A few steps and even for older adults, IT becomes child’s play!

Are you ready to play?
The game consists of 6 fields, each field corresponds to a new topic for study. Each field includes tasks that participants must complete using cards. It only takes six steps to go digital!

      • WISE’s third Transnational Project Meeting

Today, 25th November , was the last day of WISE’s third Transnational Project Meeting, which had to be carried out online due to the actual situation of CoVid-19. All of our partners shared their progress and their opinions regarding the project’s development. These two days have been a fruitful gathering, and it was really nice to see all partners again, although we would have enjoyed seeing each other face to face! For now, we will keep on working online to take this project to a success place.

      • The elephant , the rider and the path , a tale of behaviour change:A commonly held belief is that human behavior is the result of rational decision making based on available information. A closer look into the science of behavior reveals the powerful role our emotions play in our decision making process. In this animated video we look at the behavior change process using Jonathan Haidt’s analogy of an elephant, a rider, and a path.
