The Silver Code

Home / Uncategorized / The Silver Code

Living both in a rapidly developing digital world and in aging society, the Silver Code Project goal is to make older learners active players and citizens, equipped with competences required by our hyper connected world.

The main Silver Code Project objective is to increase the digital literacy of older learners and offer basic knowledge and skills in coding. Older EU citizens from the 27 EU countries are both the target group, reached through direct activities (30 learners per partner country will take part in the training activities), and direct beneficiaries, reached through peer-to-peer learning methods and dissemination events (about 100 people per partner country). A relevant number of participants, among older people, will be medium-high skilled, such as retired professionals and older people being professionally active and willing to improve their knowledge and competencies. This will be reached through:

The development of a training course, delivered by professional trainers (for theory and general supervision) and youngsters, possibly ICT students, expert on coding, acting as “tutors”(for the practical sessions).

Creation of a “Silver Coding” community based on tools such as platform, forum, social network groups.
