Training is a critical component in the development of good intergenerational practice. People from all levels of work – strategists, senior management, supervisors, volunteers, family members and individuals – require sound knowledge of what intergenerational practice actually is and what the benefits are for those involved. With knowledge then comes the confidence to successfully design, facilitate, measure and evaluate the impact of the intergenerational initiative.
Activities and learning need to be appropriate and interesting for everyone. There are some tools which can make learning more attractive for both older and younger:
EdrawMax. Plan, visualize and present better results with diagrams software
Quizlet. Research shows that testing yourself with flashcards is more effective than rereading your notes. From math to medicine to modern languages, Quizlet is used by students in over 100 different subjects
Edpuzzle. Engagement you can see, results you can measure. Empower students to take an active role in their learning with interactive video lessons that spark creativity and curiosity
