    NEW EDUCATIONAL JOURNEYS FOR ADULTS: ENHANCING FAMILY AND INTERGENERATIONAL LEARNING THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY, FILM AND ANIMATION

    This partnership was based on a need to exchange teaching and learning experiences between different types of European institutions to develop new ideas around improving family and intergenerational learning, this being one of the most innovative adult education pathways. The project set out to explore the potential of using new media and animation activities for family and intergenerational learners and their effectiveness in developing a more creative adult learning environment; thereby enriching everyday practices in partner institutions. Target groups such as young parents and seniors, mainly from a socially disadvantaged context, were provided with new learning opportunities that included participating in study circles on European films, stop-motion animation film-making, photography and IT courses. The learners increased their intercultural awareness through discussions on the documentaries and cultural films contributed by each partner country. They were able to develop their IT skills and creativity through producing stop motion animation stories based on their family’s cultural history and through creating photo albums to emphasize intergenerational ties and heritage. The activities were accessible to parents/grandparents, children, guardians/carers, and family members of different generations who learned the skills together. The course curricula developed by partners took care to incorporate learning that would offer prospects for sustainable development in their communities and which provided an opportunity to compare attitudes towards new learning possibilities. Adult trainers benefitted from new ideas, methods and approaches to adult learning through incorporating family and intergenerational activities onto their existing curricula and through learning new teaching techniques. The outcomes of the partnership are a website and a DVD Compendium of partners’ best practice including a DVD with the results of learners’ activities.
