Co-creating Learning Adventures into the Digital World


Laurea celebrates the International Active Aging Week* by organizing an international seminar about senior’s digital learning. Many opportunities to foster active ageing and lifelong learning have already been discovered within the digital world. During the 1,5 day event we work to turn these discoveries into desirable, feasible and viable learning experiences!

This two-day seminar brings together stakeholders from adult education, digital storytelling, senior associations, tourism and ICT training. The interactive approach of the program encourages the sharing of individual experiences while learning from others in an international environment. At the heart of the seminar are the seniors as learners of mobile technologies, their experiences and their stories. Before the seminar seniors from Finland and Italy take part in digital storytelling trip in Haltia the Finnish Nature Centre. 

The seminar is hosted by AHEAD – Training High Tech Seniors for Discovery, a multinational project that builds on a partnership of six organizations in five countries. The AHEAD project combines expertise in digital storytelling, education and tourism to develop an innovative approach promoting digital storytelling among senior travellers.
