The Erasmus Plus project "SAVE - Seniors Adaptation to the Virtual
Environment" is created together with the seniors community and results
from the extensive experience of the applicant and Partners. We want to
expand and develop the digital competences of seniors by using IT tools
and using them to create specific work products such as photos, texts,
videos. Older people who declare active use of the Internet, faced with
the need to transfer their practical activities to the online world,
realize that they are not fully coping with it. Elderly people, often rich
in life experience and knowledge, feel fear and aversion towards modern
devices that have dominated the world today. We want to encourage older
people to pursue their passions using digital tools. At the same time,
we emphasize that creative lessons should, in addition to
goals in the creative field, also pursue goals in the cognitive, emotional, motivational and action areas. The connecting element of these tools is that they require learning and developing digital competences related to the operation of devices and interfaces, searching for resources on the Web, analyzing online resources, applying appropriate data formats, and using ICT communication tools.
