GIRDA Workshop – Learning Digital Skills for eldery people
Members of the Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks from Jožef Stefan Institute organized a workshop in the scope of the GIRDA project on 4 July 2019 in Orehov Gaj. Along with our partners Simbioza Genezis, organization that cares for the inter-generation cooperation and learning, and the Slovenia philanthropy, we presented the results from the project. Girda is a project from the EU program Erasmus+, where the main objective is development of methodology for improving the digital literacy among elderly adults based on digital games and touch screen tablets. The development and the application of novel methods for acquiring digital skills was oriented around methods that successfully enable better coordination of the cognitive and motor skills of the elderly adults. This in turn facilitates efficient use of the modern digital devices, like smart phone, in everyday life of elderly people.
