Dyskusja EPALE: Integracja społeczna starzejącego się społeczeństwa i edukacja międzypokoleniowa

21/10/2020
przez Malgorzata Dybala

    

Potrzeby osób starszych w zakresie uczenia się przez całe życie powinny być priorytetem dla instytucji edukacyjnych, które muszą opracować wysokiej jakości programy szkoleniowe. Jednocześnie edukacja międzypokoleniowa może przyczynić się do spójności społecznej poprzez promowanie współpracy między różnymi grupami wiekowymi.

W środę 28 października, od godziny 10.00, EPALE będzie gospodarzem internetowej dyskusji na temat integracji społecznej starzejącego się społeczeństwa i edukacji międzypokoleniowej.

Dyskusja będzie obejmowała następujące tematy:

  • Jakie polityki i inicjatywy w zakresie edukacji dorosłych mogą wspierać integrację społeczną osób starszych?
  • Czy zwrócono większą uwagę na ich sytuację w obliczu pandemii COVID-19?
  • Z jakimi grupami docelowymi współpracowaliście i jakie byłyby Wasze zalecenia, aby zapewnić, że dorośli będą odgrywać aktywną rolę w społeczeństwie w miarę starzenia się?  

Zapraszamy do podzielenia się swoimi doświadczeniami i przemyśleniami podczas naszej internetowej dyskusji, którą prowadzi koordynatorka tematyczna EPALE Gina Ebner, Sekretarz Generalny EAEA (European Association for Education of Adults, czyli Europejskie Stowarzyszenie na rzecz Edukacji Dorosłych)

    

Komentarze będą otwarte 19 października, aby uczestnicy mogli się przedstawić i zamieścić swoje uwagi z wyprzedzeniem.

Dołącz do naszej internetowej dyskusji!

Dear all, I'll disappear for about 20 minutes for the preparation of a workshop - in the meantime my colleague Aleksandra Kozyra will take over (do call her Ola!). 
Back in 20! Gina

I've been wondering about this for the last couple of hours. I do agree that 'older learners' as a target group aren't necessarily that different from other groups. Also, it's a very heterogeneous group - from older workers / employees to 4th age pensioners in a care home - some are well-educated, some have missed formal education and so on. 
But what I have experienced (both as learner and teacher) is that learners have different expectations from course. I attended a Spanish course at and adult education centre (VHS) and wanted to make progress quickly. The course was supported by my organisation, so I could do it during the day. The other participants were pensioners, who wanted to take their time, learn with breaks for reminiscing about holidays in Spain etc. I found it very difficult to stay in this class and eventually dropped out and joined an evening class, which had more working people who were also interested in making more progress. Isn't this one of the differences?

I have had the same experience (Swedish course).
On the one hand, I think it is important to make it clear to whom an educational program is aimed. This can include that in a course announcement you also consider the learning pace and the context (professional or private concern).
On the other hand, perhaps not all traditional forms of learning are suitable for intergenerational learning? Perhaps we need different forms, such as perhaps project-oriented learning rather than the traditional (language course) teaching.

I agree that new methodologies could help enormously. I remember that it was extremely difficult to get 'real life' examples when I was teaching English in adult education, for example Supermarket flyers, menus, etc. Nowadays you can just get that online. There's much more potential to work differently (for everyone!)

You are right, I have the same experience, when learning Excel it was just to slow, and I could use my time in a better way. The time when the learning is influenced by your age is not before 70- 75, and that depends on your previous exposion to learning. And of course on the topics: sports or yoga might be different, but cognitive topics ....

Piedodiet, ka rakstu latviešu valodā! Bet tā man ir ātrāk. Ceru, ka tulkotājs strādā! 
Maniem senioriem ir tieši tāpat - kursos mācās ne tikai valodu, bet arī sociālizējas - runā par ģimeni, kino, seniem laikiem, dalās atmiņās!

The last projects are very interesting. I was wondering if it's possible to create specific projects with different target groups. For example, I was seing one project for youth, inventing educational games on the issues of preventing political radicalisation. I'm sure that it will be possible to include persons from all ranges of age. If we don't do it, probably is because stakeholders are focused not on methodologies but on target groups

That's a very good point David! We have an article on intergenerational learning in and through activism coming up in December. We'd like to address the stereotype that older generations don't care about the future of our societies, or issues like climate change.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the lack of digital skills can lead to a major gap between the possibilities available to different people - ranging from access to information and entertainment to being able to participate in the population wide discussions and gaining new sources of income.
Zemgale Region Human Resource and Competences Development Centre in Jelgava, Latvia organizes different activities to increase the digital skills of seniors. We have cooperated with various organizations in projects aimed at increasing the digital skills of the elderly. Each year we offer a variety of events and seminars during the European All Digital week - some of them aimed specifically at the elderly. Our staff also offers free consultations on IT and free of charge group courses in basics of using PC's and smartphones.
The general aim of these activities is to help the seniors cross the threshold where they start feeling comfortable using the modern technologies to improve their everyday lives.
