This digital object has been developed from the University of Barcelonain Pedagogy Degree context, most specifically, in Environments, processes and technological resources of learning.
“Retirement community of the Third Age ” is an innovative social project addressed at persons belonging to the elderly (from 65), and parallel to young people 18 to 30 years who are interested to join of our cultural activities. Also, this project aims to “promote the social relations of retirees Third Age” through the collaboration of these young volunteers, in an environment of intergenerational learning.
Thus, to achieve our goal, the team members have thought proper to create two virtual environments, in order to standardize the use of TIC in the daily life of this group. First, we created a Facebook page called “retirement community of the Third Age”, in order to diffuse the events that revolve around cultural activities designed for us. Moreover, we create a blog, which aims to share the experiences that users have lived in the various events, and this at the same time helps us to evaluate the project.
On the other hand, we should mention that the choice of these virtual environments was because the social network facebook allows us to reach a wider audience thanks to the great social impact, and secondly the blog that has a dual purpose, by some, create a space to share experiences and secondly we as professionals allows us to evaluate the development of our project.
