MyStory – creating an ICT-based
intergenerational learning environment 
EuroEd School – Romania – Young people from all ages

seniors, older people, and thus valorise their life experience, their knowledge and make them understand
that they still represent an active part of the entire society. The project empowers seniors to network and
better relate to the present society by organizing ICT
training to help them develop basic computer and internet skills. Young people are trained to be story collectors and are engaged in processing the collected
materials and discussions.

Once on the site, street images can be overlaid onto
Google Maps Street View, and any content can be
grouped together into Collections and strung into Tours.
The Historypin app gives users different ways of exploring this content, using location-aware tools to become
immersed in the history that surrounds them, add content or browse collections all over the world from wherever they are.
Historypin local projects take participation directly
into neighbourhoods to broad, diverse audiences and
facilitate the creation of community collections through
outreach, support and lots of local partnerships. Fuelled
by the website and app, this is where we can deliver
a lot of the inter-generational and community aims of
Historypin.

Disfruta de la experiencia (Benefit from the
experience)

together from across different generations, cultures and
places, around the history of their families and neighbourhoods, increasing contact and building stronger
communities.

Maps. All content is geo-tagged, dated and captioned.

Bryn – A nice place to be 
Bryn, UK -Primary school
The Bryn Residents’ Action Group (BRAG) is an initiative that promotes intergenerational events, activities
and projects throughout the year. During the project
‘keep Bryn tidy’ old and young picked up litter to tidy
up the village. Regular school visits from the local historical society resulted in a school play about local heritage which was performed at the community centre.
Furthermore, the children collected wartime memories
from older people that will be digitised and archived for
the future.
