LEARNING
FOR ELDERS

Providing and supporting high quality learning after retirement

Our population is ageing faster, and elders are becoming a large and relevant group in our societies.

They are healthier, empowered, and will live longer lives than their predecessors after their retirement years.

What it means to age ,and what you do with your late life will change. Elders will be eager and hungry to learn new things and gain new perspectives, and will demand fresh high quality content from educational institutions.

VIRTUAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE

A new long distance learning landscape

Just like Skype, Google Hangouts and other video conference platforms have revolutionized what teaching can be, who can do it, and where it should take place.

The rapidly growing new technological advancements within the virtual reality wave, will open up and reshape the way we interact and relate with the learning environment. New technologies like Oculus will break down the barriers of the digital screen, and will enable a new long-distance educational landscape to  emerge, allowing us to provide and receive content in a highly engaging and participatory way.

CLOSE TO NATURE

The classroom of the future is just out there

Being close to nature helps us, human beings, be more relaxed, focused and at ease. An ideal comfort space that enhances and strengthen the learning experience.

The closer we get to our screens, the closer we need to get back to the natural environment, and see ourselves as part of nature.

The classroom of the future will be outdoors, and will offer us all its dynamic possibilities to learn and understand new things while doing, sensing and experiencing with our whole selves, body and mind.

PLAYFULNESS

Having fun is serious business

 Physical experiential learning and playfulness will be relevant tools to embody, absorb and assimilate knowledge.

Our bodies will be the platform where effective learning takes place, a living canvas that will be used to stamp our memories, training experiences, skills and competences. 

By playing, and using our bodies, we activate our brain in its full capacity, and we are able to enhance the cognitive experience of learning and comprehending knowledge.
