COMMUNICATING ACROSS THE GENERATIONS WORKSHOP
Grandparents, Seniors, Parents, Tweens and Teens, Unite!
Ever wonder if you can do something to get your grandchildren to talk to you more often? Do you wish you could help bring back manners among the younger generations? Do you wonder why texting is so popular? Are the old forms of communicating as effective as modern communication? How do you bridge that gap and communicate meaningfully all the while?
There are nuances and cues for all forms of communication. Join The Protocol Academy and Technology 4 Life in their Communicating Across The Generations Workshop, a ground-breaking concept to unite the generations in communication through technology and social etiquette!
In this 3.5 hour innovative, hands-on, energetic, mixed generation workshop, it’s a melding of old and new forms of communication. The session begins with the generations together, and then the class goes into same generation break-out groups. Tweens and teens learn esteemed life skills in deference, courtesy, thoughtfulness, and graciousness in areas such as: Meet/Greet/Introduction Essentials; The Art of Small Talk; and Conversation and Communication Verbal and Non-Verbal Cues. There is an abundance of role-play and solo/group observations. Adults will bring with them smart phones or iPads and learn how to text, send photos via email, take videos, and use social media, along with learning the rules of online communication and privacy.
In the second part of the session, the two generations pair up and demonstrate to each other their newly-learned skills. The younger generation will present the value of strong personal communication, and the two generations will partner up and practice texting and social media together. Bring your friends, grandparents, neighbors, grandchildren, and bridge the generations. Get Your Communication On! Presented by Daily Protocol.
