Topic 3 The Differences & Similarities Between the Different Groups of Intergenerational Learning

It can be assumed that all groups who participate in intergenerational learning have the motivation to learn from each other. Yet, it can also be expected that adults are more eager to share their knowledge and experiences with the younger generation. Sometimes, the youngsters may become impatient or uninterested in what the older people have to say. One of the major differences between the two groups would be that the elderly people may take more time to absorb the knowledge and skills shared with them by their younger counterparts. Even though there are more similarities than differences the biggest difference is that the younger generation is described as being more fluid and having more different classifications of and identities that did not exist with the older generations.  There has been a change between the older and younger generations over the years and  intergenerational learning helps to bridge those gaps and helps different generations communicate with each other.
