DigIT aims to promote digital skills among adult educators for them to be able to design high-quality digital educational programs for senior learners.

Creating high-quality learning opportunities for seniors and fomenting an active aging lifestyle addressing the digital gap of this group has become a key priority for the European Union as exemplifies the recent Green Paper on Aging and the will of Erasmus+ to include all generations particularly seniors. COVID-19 has highlighted not only the obstacles that this range of population face as lack of digital skills and loneliness, but also how much organizations were not ready for this digital shift. The unequal access to ICT by senior learners and the lack of knowledge of digital tools and how to create educational opportunities through them by organizations has aggravated the fragile state of lifelong learning in the third age.

Promoting the exchange of Good Practices and work methodologies, encouraging strong international teamwork, capacitating the involved organizations, particularly in terms of using innovative educational digital tools.

Providing an opportunity to adult educators to participate in a transnational educational exchange among professionals from different countries, reinforcing a European identity and Intercultural learning.

Empowering facilitators and educators on how to promote key digital competencies and personal development among seniors.

Eploring different digital tools for the design of educational opportunities for seniors.

Introducing and reflecting on the design of non-formal education for seniors.

Deepening the needs and potential of the seniors' population regarding digital literacy.

We are promoting the valorization of adult educators in the active aging promotion, equipping them with powerful tools to address seniors’ needs. By creating a MOOC (Massive open online course) for adult educators of digital tools to be used in the teaching of +60 senior learners and organize short trainings for adult educators, we will be contributing to the professional development of adult educators and ultimately to the availability of high-quality learning opportunities for senior adults, particularly for seniors with a low level of skills, knowledge and competences.

With this project, we are promoting the valorization of adult educators in the active aging promotion. By creating a booklet of digital tools to be used in the teaching of +60 senior learners and organize training opportunities for adult educators, we will be contributing to the professional development of adult educators and ultimately to the availability of high-quality learning opportunities for senior adults, particularly for seniors with a low level of skills, knowledge and competences.
