Intergenerational learning 2.0 by David Serra Navarro

This video essay shows a series of practices performed in a virtual world mixed with visual reflections. In this document, its protagonists are children, elderly, and spontaneous avatars. Through cultural activities in real-time, we suggest to reflect on the “inter-potential” of these environments, and meet new methodological forms for networked learning. Participatory experimentation, the co-construction, shared authorship or individual experience are key to the future development of new communication and educational strategies.
