YouTube News
Series of videos produced in collaboration with an Estonian influencer, that have the aim of demystifying and clarifying users about digital communication related subjects.

"These videos are dynamic and visually appealing. Furthermore, the fact that they have adopted a simple and informal language makes them useful materials to enlighten individuals of various ages on topics related to digital communication - such as fake news and disinformation and the role and work of influencers. In addition, these are good resources for promoting discussion and sharing among participants in intergenerational activities, as they get younger people excited about sharing their opinions and insights ,and make older people curious to learn more about the topics covered."

B-Learning Course
The course provides some theoretical concepts, exercises and extra resources for professionals.

"The b-learning course gives the option of just learning some theoretical concepts or to explore further doing the exercises and exploring the extra resources. It’s a nice way to showcase what we have done in the project, while providing some extra frameworks"

"The whole course is clear, simple and straight to the point. It is a very useful tool to make the first acquaintance with the whole information disorder topic."

Intergenerational Workshops
Intergenerational workshops were prepared on six different topics such as: disinformation and fake news, social media and good manners, the role and influence of influencers, privacy and digital footprint and digital citizenship. Furthermore in Croatia we managed to organized 10 face to face individual consultations for the seniors. These consultations were implemented by students of journalism and communication science.

"Even in the limited approach and restrictions due to COVID-19 we have managed to provide support and consultations for the seniors. The testimonials given by our students have emphasized the necessity of individual consultations as the most effective way for empowering seniors."
