About the project

The project focuses on adult education and well-being of senior citizens in age 65 and above. These people are disadvantaged in terms of digital skills because while younger generations acquire these skills practically from the childhood, the older people didn’t have that chance simply because the computers and Internet didn’t exist when they were growing up and digital competencies were not included in their educational paths.
Even those people that have finished universities belong to the group of low skilled in the area of digital competences. This fact seriously limits their lives preventing them from taking full advantage of their time while being retired. In addition, nowadays most attention is being focused on educating young people and when there are computer classes organised for seniors, they are usually not in any way tailored to the specific needs of this target group. They are basic and technical, just like any other classes of IT for beginners, no matter what their age and abilities are.
