PEER project - Dare to be Wise!

PEER provides facilitation of informal and non-formal peer learning in online communities and explores  how technology can be used to enhance learning in later life for older adults across Europe. Members of the Learning in Later Life Students' Association have been involved in two PEER participatory workshops hosted here at the Centre in March and August 2012

Mix @ges  Project - Intergenerational bonding via Creative New Media
 
Four members of the 3Ls Traditional Music Club shared an exciting intergenerational workshop with three students from the Royal Conservatoire of Music.
 
The workshop opened up new media experiences to capture and present the result of their lively learning collaboration. The group used camcorders and digital cameras to record the musicians making music together. The recordings were uploaded to the 'mix @ges' musicians' wiki space which was acclaimed a  major success by the entire group. The wiki allows everyone to share the transitions in learniing and bonding between generations and the music transmissions are there to be enjoyed.
