During this event, members of the association had a chance to present their main activities. SIH project coordinator G.Kieriene presented the ideas and progress of the ongoing international projects such as Seniors On-line, Tales@home, KEEP50+ and ePublisher.

The project Seniors Online provided English language and ICT-training for senior citizens from the city of Raisio, Finland, during last Autumn and in the beginning of this year. Anmiro Oy - the Finnish partner in the project - arranged a final exploitation and dissemination seminar for seniors in Raisio Library on 31st May 2017.
The Seniors On-line seminar of created E-Book took place on May 31, 2017 in Ādaži, Latvia. To better understand principles and mechanisms of the e-book seniors used their own laptops – they tried listening materials, checked English phrases, and looked through additional links of sources, e.g., dictionaries included in several chapters. Some seniors said they will definitely use E-Book for further self-learning.
The seminar aimed to, first of all, present the eBook, but also enabled seniors practise the ICT skills they gained during their earlier training course.
