Have you heard of the ICT Skills 4 All project?

The ICTSkills4All project – Empowering old citizens for a digital world is a European funded project which aims at fostering digital skills, self-confidence and online safety of old adults aged 55 years and over who have minimal or no engagement with digital technology.

In order to do so, the ICTSkills4All project wants to develop an ICT Learning Programme, which includes:

  • A dedicated online platform with information, training tools and resources addressed to those who have low digital skills;
  • Face-to-face support using the inter-generational and peer-to-peer approach addressed for those who have no digital skills. The aim of this phase is to provide these people with the basic digital skills that allow them to access the platform.

In the face-to-face piloting, it will be tested which one is the best methodology between the inter-generational approach, where university students help the elderly, or the peer-to-peer approach, where the elderly with no digital skills are assisted by colleagues with more skills.  The pilot activities will take place in four partner countries: Portugal, UK, Latvia and Poland.

At the end of the first year of the project, the first two outputs have been published:

  • a report about best practice on online resources
  • a report about inter-generational and peer-to-peer educational programs

dedicated to improving digital skills in old adults. These two reports will be used by the ICTSkills4All project partners for the development of online contents and of inter-generational and peer-to-peer educational programs.

Have a look at the reports! Have you had any similar experiences of projects for older adults?
