Dimos Lariseon: Building Bridges Between Generations

The BETA Training Kit vol 1

As society continues to evolve in the digital age, bridging the generation gap in technology becomes not only a matter of connectivity but also a means of fostering understanding and collaboration between different age groups. The integration of digital literacy into intergenerational activities provides a platform for shared learning experiences, where the elderly can benefit from the technological expertise of younger individuals, while imparting their own wealth of knowledge and life experiences. This symbiotic relationship not only enhances the digital skills of the elderly but also nurtures a sense of community and mutual respect across generations.

Connecting different generations begins with activities that are not only purposeful but also enjoyable. To proceed  successfully  in Erasmus+ project BRIDGES FOR INTERGENERATIONAL APPROACH, KA 220-ADU  a guidebook has filled with ice-breaker games, learning activities, and creative projects—all aimed at creating strong and stable bridges between younger and older generations.

The BETA toolkit vol. 1 is designed to help people who bring different age groups together—whether they are working with kids or older adults. Its goal is to make the experience inspiring and safe. The toolkit focuses on promoting learning and teamwork between generations, encouraging values like respect and inclusiveness. All activities can be adjusted to fit different places and purposes. What ties them all together is that they not only help children  and elderly  communicate and learn from each other but also create new and exciting learning moments together.

The BETA  toolkit vol 1 is  like a paint palette with many colors, reflecting the charm of our diverse world. Those using it, whether educators, facilitators, or researchers, can choose  the colours they like and create their own masterpiece. The facilitators   have to pick what works for their team, always keeping in mind their interests and skills. The most  important  is to remember that people learn best when they are having fun and actively participating!
