The ACT Silver Gaming Intergenerational Summer School (SGISS), organized by Margarida Romero, will be held from August 21-22 2015 at the Université Laval in Québec City, Québec. SGISS will bring together students, elders and scholars in activities that aim to explore intergenerational digital creation activities as well as to exchange on the conception, the development and the uses of digital games in social sciences.

This project aims to explore intergenerational digital creation activities as well as to exchange on the conception, the development and the uses of digital games in the social sciences. It will also promote the development of skills through an approach that embraces knowledge; citizen science; collaboration and intergenerational learning; student academic achievement; and elders’ social participation.
