Digital Coach

Jury Award Austria 2015

The training course “Digital Coach” strives to bridge the digital gap between “Digital Natives” and “Silver Surfers”: young participants are empowered to guide elderly people through their first steps within digital environments. The first half of the Course focusses on media literacy and coaching skills – within the second half, participants are guided to use their newly gained knowledge right away. Therefore Buddy-Teams of a Teenager and a Senior are formed. As an additional and just as important value, both target groups get an insight in their way of life and might revise stereotypes.
