Name give the Method:
Older people tame IT
Presentation/Description of the method:
Introduction to method presentation and method 1
We think this very brief and accurate presentation of a quit huge report published in Denmark back in 2005 describing and concluding an overall result of 11 implemented projects, testing and examine fruitful learning/teaching methods for older people’s developing their IT skills.
The presentation is done by professor Birgit Jæger Roskilde University (slide 4).
Even though her conclusion don`t match our approach(slide no 5 & 6) in the Slow Learning project I think it is important to have in mind – when Slow Learning move on.
However as you will see in our comment to this Good practice no 1 – she ends up pointing out a method or some parts important to be aware of if the ambition is to teach seniors to develop their approach to IT and competences to use IT.
However, that Professor Birgit Jæger refer in Slide 5 that:
The project managers agreed that the projects hadn`t led to development
of special senior pedagogical methods to build up IT-expertise among the participants
and state in Slide 6 that:
Teaching the elderly differs in most manager’s opinion, not from educating adults in general
We believe professor Birgit Jæger Roskilde University from slide 7 and to the end of the presentation (slide 21) points out a substantial number of essential points. Points out a number of areas of awareness, if and when a pedagogical approach is to be described and a belonging methodology to be developed and established, to support the best learning and training process of senior citizens to become more IT competent.
