The compendium will be a unique and innovative package of existing effective practices and tools in teaching technology to seniors. This tool will ensure that information compiled in the compendium will be for the use of national training institutions/organisations/colleges who are trying to identify innovative and supporting practices and tools to work more effectively with seniors.
The goal is to introduce users to the range of effective practices and tools in teaching technology to seniors. The training institutions/organisations/colleges (education community), will be encouraged to browse the compendium to select approaches that meet the needs of specific types of providers (VET or AL).
This information will ultimately be available on the web and will be part of an interactive, search-able tool to link users to the evolving innovative and effective practices and tools in teaching technology to seniors. This tool is to be considered a snap shot of the current state of affairs, and should be updated regularly.
Who we target
The compendium will be the key reference to adapt, update and further develop the techniques to teach technology to seniors. Moreover, these “inventories” will be a good base for VET and AL operators willing to focus their activities on training older people with a more practical and innovative approach, and also for trainers to understand how and where to concentrate their efforts.
