What Happens When Tech-Savvy Teens Help Cyberseniors? - Edudemic

What Happens When Tech-Savvy Teens Help Cyberseniors? - Edudemic | Silver Economie - International | Scoop.it

"In school settings, teachers are older than students. Thus, there is always much discussion around the concept of what’s changed since the teacher was the student’s age, and what that means for education. We look at generational differences between multiple generations. We talk about the future of education: Is it mostly STEM based? Is it all digital?

 

Sometimes, it is important to remember that all of us need to learn different types of things throughout our lives, and that teachers don’t always take the form of an older, ‘more educated’ person in front of a classroom. The awesome video below is the trailer for a movie called “Cyberseniors”, in which teenagers team up with senior citizens to teach them about the internet. It offers some great takeaways, along with a solid dose of humor. Enjoy!"

Un premier téléphone braille commercialisé w3sh.com | Silver Economie - International | Scoop.it

Voici une nouvelle très intéressante, bien que le concept de téléphone braille ne soit pas nouveau. Il y a eu par exemple le projet Braille phone d’un indien, qui voulait proposer un smartphone conçu pour les aveugles et malvoyants.
Mais c’est tout de même la première fois qu’un mobile avec des touches gravés en braille sera commercialisé dans le monde et précisément au Royaume-Uni.
