Motivating and enhancing the digital competence of seniors
facing significant electronic service barriers presents a challenging task. Our
training "Teaching Tech to Seniors: Instructor Training Program"
equips educators with vital instructions, methodological guidance, and learning
materials for seamless integration into diverse training programs and
face-to-face sessions. This program provides insights into introducing the
"My e-Start" online course to seniors, fostering their participation,
and integrating it into blended learning contexts.
The training commences with an overview of common e-Government
and e-Commerce services, considering digital competencies outlined in the
European Digital Competence Framework (DigiComp). This foundational knowledge
is crucial for trainers to comprehend the services that seniors may find
challenging to access and the requisite digital skills.
Following that, the training details the rationale, content,
and pedagogical concepts of the online course. Subsequent sections provide
guidance on introducing the "My e-Start" online course and motivating
senior participants to engage with it.
