The Interzoom Partnership (New Educational Journeys for Adults: Enhancing Family and Intergenerational Learning Through Photography, Film and Animation) responds to a need to develop new ideas and improve family and intergenerational learning.
Launched in 2010, the project aims to explore the potential of using new media and animation for family and intergenerational activities, and their effectiveness in developing adult learning environments and enriching everyday practices in partner institutions. The concrete objectives of the partnership were the following:
● To exchange teaching and learning experiences, knowledge and good practices via intergenerational adult learning environments.
● To stimulate and facilitate the development of innovative intergenerational activities, methods and approaches at the participating institutions.
● To develop and explore the creation of new adult learning environments and enrich everyday practices in partner institutions through new media intergenerational activities: photography, films and animation.
● To enhance the availability of educational opportunities for socially disadvantaged seniors, parents, guardians/carers and introduce them to and develop or improve their knowledge of new technology while fostering confidence in a social and learning context. It was expected that this would raise intercultural awareness and offer opportunities to understand and minimize social differences.
● To provide opportunities for adult education trainers to learn new skills and benefit from an expanded teaching repertoire for multi-age learners.
● To promote innovative intergenerational education possibilities at local, national and international levels.
The outcomes of the partnership will be a website and a compendium of partners’ best practice with detailed descriptions of activities enclosing a DVD with the results (animation films, video clips, photo albums) of learners’ activities.
The participating countries are Lithuania, the UK, Turkey, Finland, France, the Czech Republic, and Greece.
