Enactus student team of Engineering Institute successfully implements the Grandparents-online project
For the second year in a row, the Grandparents-online program, which is aimed at computer support for veterans of the educational institution, is being implemented within the walls of the Engineering Institute of Zaporizhzhia National University. It should be mentioned that Grandparents-online project was presented by the students of Engineering Institute in Kyiv during the National Enactus competitions where it was highly appreciated. This program is based not only on the desire of young people to “pull up” the knowledge of the older generation, but is also based on the basic tenets of the “pedagogy of cooperation”.
Such training implies mutual understanding, mutual respect and creative cooperation of a professor and a student, personal dialogue as one of the forms of educational communication. This is exactly how they build their relations with seniors and conduct computer literacy lessons “professors” of the school - students Viktoriia Starodubets, Daria Sitko, Maksym Boiko, Sofiia Sokhan, Yelyzaveta Mofa, Miliena Somchina, Ivan Pakhomov, Iryna Shevchenko. The head of the computer literacy school of the Engineering Institute of ZNU is a student Dmytro Liashenko. Not only veterans of the Engineering Institute of ZNU, but also members of the Dnipro veteran organization, are involved in the project.
The sixteenth session was held on the sixteenth of May, 2019. The program of the school for the elderly helps to master not only the basics of using a computer, laptop, tablet, but also helps to register on social networks, the study of Internet banking. An additional bonus will be lessons on mastering the skills of using the Android operating system.
We wish professors of the courses further success, and cadets - the pleasure from the knowledge gained and the active exploration of the World Wide Web spaces.
