    • ALICE Project’s Outline IL can be a twofold purpose process, that improve dialogue among generations through civic participation in common social and institutional spaces, while at the same time enacts processes of informal learning towards the achievement, both by adults and children, of key competences for lifelong learning Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
    •  To help adults, senior citizen and volunteers to reflect and acquire competences necessary to become effective educators, and the impact their actions can have on future learning ofAims children.  To provide adults, senior citizen and volunteers with creative languages to generate “zones of proximal development” for intergenerational learning;  To train adults trainers to adopt ALICE methodological approach, becoming aware of the role that adults as educator can have on social cohesion, and hence, re-considering the value of adults training institutions. Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
    • Objectives (1) To improve knowledge on cultural diversity and values of European patrimony, as the base of creative languages, with impact on adults acquisition of Key competence (KC) 8 “cultural awareness and expression” . To favour sharing of creative experiences among generations, as spaces of reflection, awareness and learning on otherness towards commitment and solidarity, with impact on adults acquisition of “social and citizenship KC6” Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
    • Objectives (2) To develop knowledge and skills for using art as creative language to dialogue with children with impact on adults the acquisition of KC 5 (learning to learn), KC7 (sense of initiative and entrepreneurship) e KC8 To develop knowledge and skills for using storytelling as creative language to dialogue with children with impact on adults the acquisition of KC 5 (learning to learn), KC7 e KC8 To develop knowledge and skills for using games and social media as creative language to dialogue with children with impact on adults the acquisition of KC 4 (digital competence) and KC5 Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
    • Objectives (3) To empower alliances among local government, school, elder people centers, cultural associations, private sector, University, as spaces of implementation of creative experiences for intergenerational learning To improve the perspective of interdependence between adult as educator and adult as lifelong learner, improving the participation of adults to lifelong learning. To contrast processes of exclusion and marginalization of adults-children at risk because of the low competences of the former in caring/educating the latter. Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
    • ALICE’s toolkit European and non-European cultural heritage:  art (music/paintings/theatre);  elder people stories;  childrens literature; Social media to promote sharing of learning results - digitalization of contents created above- Games, according to children ages, to stimulate problem solving, creativity, entrepreneurship. Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
    • ALICE’s Phases of Development1. Train adults trainers to understand and implement ALICE’s approach.2. Trainers will implement ALICE’s approach through an informal education environment. Different adults could be engaged: partners, senior citizen, teachers, volunteers.3. Testing phase where adults will use creative languages with children. The phase is accomplished with participatory evaluation (as adults and trainers reflection process) on impact on intergenerational dialogue. The project will also implement a strategy of communication to raise awareness among international scientific community, as well as local policy makers and adults’ education providers on ALICE’s strategy and impact, for further adoption of the model Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012

    • Creating the Space for Educational Innovation inAdults’ Education Adults’ trainers must be able of understanding the value of informal learning situations, developing skills to promote events with strategic impact on key competences. It is not enough to promote cultural events: trainers, as scaffolders of generational dialogue are called to be aware of the educational impacts of their informal activities as a way to engage adults that are normally far from formal (University, Further training) and/or non-formal (training on the job) in lifelong learning trajectories Adults Learning for Intergenerational Creative Experiences EDEN conference, Porto 6-9 2012
