Digital Timelines - Training Course and Guidelines

The use of everyday IT digital devices such as tablets and smartphones will be used to allow practitioners in care as well as family members to produce personalised video films consisting of visual and oral materials, chosen by the person with memory loss, their carers and family. The aim of the films is to act as a memory trigger to create a positive reaction and or stimulate conversation. The training and making of the films will be at very little or no cost. The developed training materials and methods will be shared on a one-to-one basis or in small groups and will also be available as an instructional video online. Visit the webpage to download the free materials and OER. This project was co-funded as part of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission.
