Intergenerational Learning in the Family
Jelenc Krašovec, Sabina; Kump, Sonja
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (10th, Kyustendil, Bulgaria, Jun 12-15, 2012)
Intergenerational learning in the family is today often hindered due to the family changes and changes in society. We start from the supposition, that social transitions between generations are still important for transmission of heritage and knowledge. In the paper we discuss the connectedness of intergenerational learning, socialization, and communication. The research focuses on the perception of three generations in the family about mutual learning and cooperation, the influence of family members' interconnectedness and the contents of mutual learning between the three generations. On the basis of case studies analyses we can ascertain, that learning in the family truly includes cognitive, emotional and social components; social learning, which goes on in the family, is closely related to interaction, communication, and the quality of relations in the family.
