Abstract: For the past 25 years of teaching in elementary school, I have experienced many different paths to increase motivation & engagement of students... and my own. Here are some hints about a wonderful 15 years project that can be implemented anywhere with minimum preparation. This major project has 4 levels: 1- elders integration in classroom management, 2- grade 5-6 students teaching ICT to elders 3- students helping Alzheimer patients and finally leading to 4- the Learn With Grandma movement. My recent work with 1st Nations schools teachers to bring new practices in the classroom has just made my beliefs into this successful intergenerational learning project stronger.
