Povzetek

Vseživljenjsko učenje je eden od temeljev aktivnega staranja, saj učenje krepi dobro počutje in tako omogoča starejšim ljudem, da ostajajo zdravi in vključeni v družbo. Članek poroča o študiji tipa prej-potem (pretest-posttest), izvedeni na Univerzi za tretje življenjsko obdobje na Malti, ki je merila učinek, ki ga ima učenje kasneje v življenju na aktivno staranje. Ugotovitve so pokazale, da ima učenje starejših odraslih močan pozitiven vpliv na stopnjo aktivnega staranja udeležencev in zanje pomeni vir socialnega kapitala, hkrati pa so ljudje, ki so imeli v zgodnjem življenju pozitivne izkušnje z učenjem, bolj motivirani, da sodelujejo pri učenju tudi kasneje. Članek ugotavlja, da vseživljenjsko učenje pri starejših odraslih lahko blaži socialno izolacijo, kognitivno oslabitev in starostno diskriminacijo, ki se običajno pojavijo pri starejših.
