Abstract and Keywords

Public expectations should be changed so that all age groups experience certain aspects of social transformation together. In this way, each cohort will understand that harmony and cohesion require the adjustment of more than a single generation. This presentation identifies formative elements of a paradigm to support intergenerational learning. Emphasis is placed on the conditions needed to motivate optimal support, societal benefits of reciprocal learning, and ways to improve education in the classroom and at home. Adults want schools to communicate the attitudes, knowledge, and skills that students need to become successful. Grownups must become equally concerned about how to detect and meet their own learning needs. Every age group can become more influential by finding out how their behavior is perceived by other generations.

Keywords: lifelong learning, intergenerational learning, reciprocal learning, grandparents, parents, families, generation, older adults, motivation, education
