Nevertheless, proposed results require high technical expertise and costs, which represent two of the main existing challenges and barriers for educators that would like to innovate their digital teaching strategies. DIFA project is an opportunity to bring together a multi-disciplinary, complementary partnership consisting of four partners from Romania (NGO specialized in digital education and an NGO providing support to elderly center), Spain (institute specialized in design training processes), and SHEM (adult education centre).
Educators need improved digital skills for adapting to digital education. They need digital competence and a toolbox of instruments for creating engaging & active learning, and ensure learners reach the desired learning outcomes.
Adults 55+ need digital skills to access support services, medical appointments, welfare activities; and to stay safe while online. They need accessible tools to understand own level of digital competency and attractive courses to become digital competent.
