SuperGenerational: An Intergenerational Feedback Audience
Lucas Longo and Alex Barker
SuperGenerational is an online learning environment where America's senior citizens and younger learners interact around student projects, presentations, performances, and broader questions about life. At the heart of SuperGenerational is the belief that healthy communities are intergernerational, that senior citizens are our most underutilized human resource, that children need exposure to wrinkled skin and old ideas, and that there is magic in skipped generation relationships. SuperGenerational's intergenerational feedback network is powered by real time video conferencing, the wisdom and expertise of our senior citizens, and a richly scaffolded process for teaching participants the benefits and art of giving and receiving good feedback.
