In order to plan and execute a successful intergenerational learning activity there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.
The first thing to consider and decide upon are the aims of the project.
-What needs to be achieved by the end of the project?
-What do I want the learners to gain from this experience?
-What is the long-term impact and purpose of the project?
Objectives refer to the way these aims are going to be achieved.
A good way to identify your objectives is to follow the SMART objectives (Ogbeiwi, 6):
Specific = Who and what?
Measurable= How much change is expected?
Attainable = Can this objective be achieved?
Realistic = Does this objective address the scope of the problem?
Time-bound/Timely = How long should the project be? What’s the timeframe?
