Languages of publication
This article presents the main assumptions and general results of the "ICT Guides" project implemented under the Erasmus + program. This project was initiated by the local government of the city of Goteborg in Sweden, and its aim was to reduce the phenomenon of early school leaving by children and youth from immigrant families. The project was also joined by the authorities of three other European cities, namely Sheffield (Great Britain), Madrid (Spain) and Berlin (Germany). The project consisted in organizing of intergenerational learning courses with the participation of children and young people from immigrant families and local seniors, which were supported by information and communication technologies (ICT) and Internet applications. Apart from conventional meeting places, such senior clubs, community centers, intergenerational cooperation and intergenerational learning, there was also cyberspace. The University of Lodz was the research institution preparing the theoretical framework for the project implementation and evaluated the project.
