Connectivity, social inclusion and digital inclusion are close concepts relating to the today’s networked society and older people. All professionals, educators involved in older adult education and learning included have responsibility to contribute to reducing the digital divide in our societies. The digital divide separates generations and unfortunately is getting ever wider. Older learners do not really see the benefits of digital education. Undoubtedly face-to-face discussion is still the best method in older adult education meeting most of the older learners' psycho social needs.

A Belfast based innovative language and employability programme for refugees. This pilot programme of 14 weeks combined English language learning with developing and updating existing practical skills of refugees in areas where there is a local skills shortage, such as plumbing, electrical works, construction, etc.  The programme was focused on male refugees with trade/practical skills backgrounds, who had dropped out of formal language classes and were at risk of increased isolation and mental health concerns.  The programme was developed by Conway Education Centre in consultation with refugees and two local training organisations. It was supported by local employers and the NI Department for the Economy through ESOL NI.

Save the date for the Final Conference of the Erasmus+ project 'Alternative Ways' on 6th October 2020 in Brussels. Whilst working with different language-groups, both in formal and informal ways, the partners in the Alternative Ways project experienced that there is a significant number of learners that succeeds in learning a new language. However, they also noticed that the drop-out rate is relatively high. It is because of this high drop-out rate that they started this project and developed a toolkit.
