Cyber School for Grandparents. An intergenerational Media Education path

This contribution aims to describe a good practice of digital literacy for the elderly population by insisting on an intergenerational educational logic. The Cyber School for Grandparents project aimed to train students attending the High School of Human Sciences to become warm experts of their grandparents by providing in-class training on both the contents and the transversal skills necessary to enable adolescents to meet the educational media independently in extracurricular hours. Working on developing the elderly's digital skills means circumscribing and designing the ethical dimension of Media Education that does not forget responsibility and resistance, but considers digital citizenship as a goal to be pursued also for the elderly population.
