MIND THE GAP – a bridge between digital migrants and digital natives

EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education
Coordination: La Bien Pagá Espacio Escénico (Spain)

Duration: December 2021 – December 2023




Individuals at the age of 55 and above have been referred as “Digital Migrants” since they were born at a time when digital technologies were not widespread which places them at a disadvantageous position when it comes to adapting to the digital competences of the ever-changing era. Whereas people born into the digital era have been referred to as “Digital Natives” which basically means that they are the “native speakers” of the computers, digital tools and internet. These individuals have clearer insight of change and adapt when the topic is the digital era. One of the elements of what separates these two different types of residents of the society is their methods and speed of generating a solution to the current problems of today.

MIND THE GAP aims to offer customized framework, training contents and tools for both adult trainers and digital migrants to support them in digital skills.
