The WOWSA (What's on the Web Safely for Adults) Project builds upon the WOW (What's on the Web) Grundtvig Partnership Project, that sought to bring together diverse groups of adult learners to learn and improve their basic IT Skills.
Launched during the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations 2012, WOWSA takes the concept one step further to help promote digital inclusion and e-Safety for often marginalised adult groups in the Web 2.0 era.
The aim of the project is to promote intergenerational solidarity by breaking down barriers between age groups and to foster a collaborative learning opportunity between younger and older adults who are vulnerable concerning online responsibility and e-Safety. With more and more services moving online it’s vital that all members of society can use and navigate the immersive worlds of the internet safely and efficiently.
The project partners in the UK, Poland and Turkey will hold local WOWSA sessions and bring together diverse groups of adults to better promote understanding and increase IT skills as well as supporting vulnerable groups. The goal is to train over 100 adults in e-Safety by the end of the project, in 2014.
