Virtual Ageing Simulation Programme
The Virtual Ageing Simulation Programme enables to connect to the distinct social needs of our community and connect with others alike through digital means of engagement, as they experience virtually what it is like to be in the shoes of marginalized seniors in Singapore.
Crafted with the David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle framework in mind, the Virtual Ageing Simulation Programme utilises the four stages of the Experiential Learning Cycle (concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation) to cultivate Awareness, Empathy, Ownership and Action in participants.
At the end of the programme, participants will become more socially responsible with regards to the social issues faced by the marginalized seniors in our community.

Similarly, our Virtual Simulation Programmes aim to create
greater awareness and empathy towards social issues, inspiring individuals to become socially responsible citizens as they take action to address needs in our community.
Crafted with David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle framework of concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation, our goal is to cultivate Awareness, Empathy, Ownership and Action in participants.
Virtual Ageing Simulation Experience
Aligned with the new norm of virtual engagement & home-based learning, many of us have experienced a sense of isolation from others due to limited social interaction.
Through our Virtual Ageing Simulation experience, participants will be able to experience how socially isolated seniors are more severely affected due to limited digital connectivity and interaction.
An impactful simulation that compels me to reflect and set realistic commitments to help the seniors within my community.
The simulation exercise helped me to become more aware of how social isolation impacts our seniors. Through it, I was able to empathise more and it even got me thinking about what I could do to help change the lives of our seniors and make it better. Based on statistics shown, this issue is alarming and that more needs to be done to prevent social isolation from affecting our seniors.
An immersive simulation that evokes the sense of doing more through empathising. Questions posed are those that many would not often ponder about, asking us to think about the potential struggle we may face when we get older.
Virtual Inequality Simulation Experience
Through our Virtual Inequality Simulation experience,
take on the role of a family member in a low-income family and experience the complexities of having to make decisions beyond the financial constraints - with a deeper understanding of the social and emotional needs
