Dear colleagues,

I am very happy to announce that Timeline Travel is ready for your use: timelinetravel.net

You may use Timeline Travel in order to discover architectural histories of project’s two prototype cities, Istanbul and Ravenna, or you may create your own timelines. You can use it during your lectures as a digital teaching companion, encourage your students to use it as an interactive tool, assign them Timeline Travel projects through learning-by-doing approach, or you can even use it for research purposes. More information about the usage of the tool can be found on timelinetravel.net by clicking “?” or you may learn more about the project by clicking “i”.

You can also check Timeline Travel e-Learning Platform by following the link on the same page. Though the graphic user interface design of the e-learning platform is still in progress and the whole system will be upgraded soon, you can explore the contents of “Ottoman Architecture in Istanbul” course by enrolling the course with password “testgroup". You can use this free e-learning platform to prepare your own lectures, or you can assign it to your students. As another intellectual output, we are currently conducting test lectures at Gaziantep University’s Department of Architecture by using Timeline Travel Tool and e-Learning Platform besides conventional lectures. We will soon share the results of these test lectures with you.

The first stage of the free of charge training of ICT teachers under the Cisco Networking Academy program has finished on the 8th of February 2019.
In October the Bulgarian Association of the Networking Academies, as an official coordinator of the Cisco Academies in Bulgaria, in partnership with the Bulgarian Industrial Association started a program for establishment of 20 Cisco Academies in vocational schools all over the country, as well as training for 90 instructors.
The “IT Essentials – a Basis for Information Technologies” course for 43 teachers consists of an overall review of information technologies, introduction to the networks, computer maintenance, safe work with computers, computer assembly, installation and re-installation of various software, including operational systems, localization of problems and their solving. 

The “IT Essentials” training course ended with a final examination for all teachers and they received training certificates with qualification credits from the Bulgarian Industrial Association, the latter being authorized for continuing teacher’s training for professional development by the minister of education and science.
Most of the teachers will continue their training in the course for Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing & Switching (CCNA) – "Cisco-certified Assistant for work with networks", which will be held until the month of September 2019.

Practising Dutch as a second language skills through online tasks: NedBox At the Centre for Language and Education (Centrum voor Taal en Onderwijs – KULeuven), we developed NedBox (www.nedbox.be), a digital platform which aims to offer adult learners of Dutch as a second language (DSL) online practice opportunities in a fun, non-academic way during their leisure time. NedBox (www.nedbox.be) is a dynamic, learner-driven online environment in which learners can choose and perform meaningful tasks, tailored to their needs and interests, based on appealing and authentic online input; in which they are provided with online support and in which they get immediate online feedback. Considering the group of low-educated learners, with low digital skills, special attention was given to the accessibility of the platform. Innovative to NedBox is that it builds on the success factors for second language acquisition as well as online learning to create a powerful and motivating online learning environment. A first principle is that adult second-language learners must have a diversified language offer, with stimulating and authentic online input. More specifically, the training activities on NedBox start from up-to-date visual, text and sound material. It offers various themes that tie in with the roles of newcomers: work, children, consumers, leisure, social contact, life in Belgium, health, the world and 'really happened'. The platform is fed with new items every week. Secondly, NedBox offers functional tasks, tailored to the needs and interests of adult second language learners: filling in a form, reading and understanding invitations, writing a card, .... Thirdly, it is the learner, not the system, who chooses which fragments will be viewed and which tasks will be performed and in which order. Next, the learners’ motivation also increases due to the immediate and targeted online feedback. In addition, the learner can interact with other users, with native speakers and with the outside world, for example via a Facebook community. And last but not least: considering the user group of NedBox, which consists of both highly-educated and less-educated learners, special attention was paid to the general design of the online learning environment, which should be as intuitive and accessible as possible. Acknowledgements: NedBox was developed with financial support from the European Integration Fund.

Dear EPALERS.
Thanks a lot for the valuable contributions provided this week.
I have been overambitious I must admit. I wanted to draft a short overview blog on the projects and comments posted this week, but with more than 60 contributions, 38 different projects and a number of further reading comments and reflections, I simply cannot get through in one weekend!

There will be an overview blog, but please be patient. In the meantime please continue further posting projects or explore the other dedicated pages of EPALE on digital learning such as:

In the New Media Age we are constantly surrounded by all kinds of information, from political issues to advertisements and marketing, which gets to us with no filter other than our own capacity to critically assess its validity. Biased information appears to be particularly difficult to decode for the less media-literate demographics; while the rates of digital literacy have proved to disregard age or educational level, the Open Your Eyes project targets specifically adult learners and educators and seeks to improve their digital literacy by providing them with tools to identify fake news and fight the spread of disinformation online

The project intends to deliver two main outputs: 
  • “Check IT Out” Database: after thorough comparative research, the partners will compile a collection of best practices and initiatives that will enable users to develop a critical approach to news consumption and hopefully trigger their critical sense towards this issue. Research will be conducted in a selection of European countries interested by phenomena such as separatism and rising disinformation, particularly around the time of national and European elections, and will allow future users to design individual strategies to confront disinformation based on what worked best in other countries. 
  • “Check IT Out” Labs: held by especially-trained adult educators and based on the previously developed database, the Labs target groups of 10+ adult learners in partner countries with the objective of developing their critical and digital skills, bringing them closer to the concept of fake news and ultimately spreading awareness about the topic within their network. 

Programme: Erasmus+ KA2

This looks like a very interesting and worthwhile project, which could also be relevant to EPALE's next theme on Citizenship Education for adults to be ore critically aware, and recognise 'fake news'.

The Brooklyn Museum in New York created a mobile app that helps you visiting museum and learning from exhibitions. The innovation of this tool lies in its simplicity. App allows you to ask questions about viewed works of art and get answers in real time. Thus, there are no ready answers to hypothetical questions, but they are prepared for specific, individual questions that appear when someone visiting the museum. At the technical level, the application is a communicator that allows you to connect with educators who are in museum galleries at the same time. Their task is to answer any doubts raised during the visit, in particular, questions about the meaning of exhibited works of art. The most interesting questions and answers are then posted on the website. A good educational tool combining a traditional educational method with mobile app. See https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/ask
