DigiLife – Digital Life Learning

DigiLife – Digital Life Learning aims to develop a toolkit and training sessions to increase the digital competences of older adults, with the active collaboration of young university students. The aim is to promote intergenerationality and, at the same time, to provide new experiences in a real work environment to young students. These knowledge-sharing experiences will be recognised through the attribution of credit units (micro-credentials), within the scope of Digital Literacy.

The Project started in November 2022 and will last 26 months. DigiLife is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme: KA220-ADU – Partnerships for Cooperation in Adult Education, of the European Commission and has 6 European partners: Caritas of Coimbra (Portugal), Instituto Pedro Nunes (Portugal), Plataforma del Voluntariado (Spain), People Behind (Greece), Universita Degli Studi Di Roma Tor Vergata (Italy) and Fondazione Garagerasmus (Italy), coordinator of the project.

  1. Needs analysis to assess the difficulties and specific requirements of older adults;
  2. Development of the Portuguese pilot in collaboration with the Instituto Pedro Nunes of Coimbra, which will cover 30 older adults aged 65 to 74 and 20 young university volunteers aged 20 to 25.
  3. Support in the development of a methodology to transfer knowledge to trainers (young students) and trainees (older adults);
  4. Support in the evaluation of methods, techniques and tools applied in different EU countries.
