Strategic Partnership for Older People’s Inclusion into the Digital World (SPIDW)

Project number: 2018-1-DE02-KA204-005076

Duration: 1. 10. 2018 – 31. 12. 2020

The SPIDW project is concerned with ICT tools (digital devices, applications, media, etc.), but these do not suffice without developing ICT skills of both, educators and learners.

SPIDW is a project meant to exchange good practices in the field of adult education and inclusion of older people into the digital world.

The main objectives of the project

  • To provide conditions and opportunities for older people to obtain digital skills getting familiar with and participating in carefully selected good practices, including filmmaking;
  • To train the trainers about how to apply good practices based on most advanced digital tools in older adult education;
  • To enable educational providers and educators to develop and strengthen their capacity to work internationally, sharing ideas, methods and good practices;
  • To implement successful educational activities with older people at local, regional and national level.

Target group

There are directly targeted learners in this project, members of the partners’ organisations, adult educators, social workers, and there are indirectly targeted learners, i.e. older people in post-professional phase of life.


Educators, trainers, experts, teachers, social workers who work with older people were educated and trained to transpose effective good practices to their educational environment. They participated in 3 training activities: in Germany, Slovenia (face-to-face) and Portugal (online) as to improve their ICT skills while learning new digital methods and techniques to pass over to their older learners.
