Technologies and social inclusion: ICT as a tool to support lifelong learning and intergenerational dialogue
From the pedagogical point of view, a relevant issue is to consider the elderly as both subjects of continuous learning, both as guardians of knowledge and skills to share, facilitated by intergenerational dialogue. New technologies can be helpful to learn a common language and to know and experiment with different content and communication strategies
The diffusion and use of technology has considerable importance in relation to active ageing in the context of: information and communication (social inclusion and support for independent and assisted living), learning (life-long learning, life-wide learning and development of the intergenerational dialogue) and eHealth care (improvement of the conditions and modalities of health care).
