Thanks to the funding from Erasmus+ sub-programme of Support for Policy Reform, within the action of Social inclusion through education, training and youth a new e-learning platform for educators is in its finishing state. This platform will offer educators a complete curriculum for implementing philosophical inquiry in classrooms, modules for teaching about diversity and global issues as well as a media library with a collection of approaches in different countries and materials in different languages.

IÐAN fræðslusetur is a non-profit continuing education provider serving numerous trades in Iceland.

Literacy, numeracy and social skills are fundamental to master typical situations in everyday working life. Competence deficits in this areas can prove to be an obstacle to permanent and successful integration into the labour market especially for migrants, refugees but also for locals.This is where the ERASMUS+ project “Workplace Basic Skills” kicks in!

Scottish colleges will be welcoming Digital Ambition Roadshows in autumn 2019 – students and staff will be asked what they think learning will look like in the future and their responses will then be used to develop a ‘digital ambition’ for the country. Six colleges will be receiving the roadshows, which are listed in the article.

The INNORESOLVE project (2017-ES01-KA202-037932), funded by the EU Lifelong Learning Programme, which aims to contribute to increasing high quality learning opportunities for owners and managers of foundry companies by improving their digital skills and innovative practices in order to be ready to face the challenges of Foundry 4.0, is coming to an end.

Dear EPALE community,
I would like to inform you that we have successfully started our Erasmus+ project (ID: 2019-1-SK01-KA204-060805). The aim of the project is to improve the quality of adult education in career counseling, the development of talent and soft-skills of the unemployed, in order to find better employment and satisfaction in their lives. Moreover, this project will also help career advisors to use new tool in their consultancy.

Equal opportunities for social participation—the central objective of publicly-funded adult learning—are essential in the area of digitalisation, too. General adult learning can be a strong partner for improving life skills in a digitalised world. Read how the German National Strategy for Continuing Education aims to reach this target in this blog post.

The ever-increasing financialization and complexity requires financial literacy to be an integral part of the research agenda and of global policy making, in particular in the EU. SUCCEED's partnership was composed of expert educational organizations such as CONFORM (Italy), BICERO (Slovenia) and FUNIBER (Spain) and a wide range of business support organizations: a business incubator, The Hive(Italy) and many networks of enterprises such as SATEAN(Romania), Italian-Luxembourgish Chamber of Commerce (Luxembourg), RES and CBE (both from Belgium).
How can we plan a project that contributes to equal opportunities in adult education? How can we transfer this knowledge? You will learn the conditions of a transfer and you will get practical information to design and implement your transfer activities. The example of Equal Space will show you, what to look for in a transfer.
In the first quarter of this century, digital media has been consolidated as an essential part of everyday life. The digital world presumably presents many advantages and opportunities nonetheless, it also carriers risks and threats we were not used to. In the age of fake news, disinformation, algorithms, artificial intelligence, ubiquitous learning, social networks, etc. it is essential to understand the operating principles and mechanisms of the Internet and media to safely navigate the Internet environment and take informed decisions.

A large number of psychological studies claim that a person's consciousness changes while they are learning, and there are various mental processes that have an effective effect on the development of the brain and the consciousness. Learning affects mental and thought processes. Constant learning creates new neural pathways, with the brain remaining in function and not deteriorating.

Digital learning and education are as important as formal education has been up to now, however there is a much larger amount of information available through digital learning. By using a variety of technical tools, a greater number of information can be displayed, and the material presented is more interesting.

Co musisz wiedzieć i umieć przed zrobieniem pierwszego kursu online

Zapraszamy na bezpłatny webinar prowadzony przez polskich Ambasadorów Platformy EPALE: Sławka Łaisa i Piotra Maczugę.

Nie da się ukryć, że kursy online są obecnie po prostu modne. Jako ludzie aktywni coraz częściej stajemy po obu stronach procesu. Nie tylko uczymy się i rozwijamy dzięki kursom, ale sami mamy ambicję uczyć innych. Powstaje wiele poradników i materiałów mówiących o tym, jak zrobić kurs, który zarobi duże pieniądze. Stosunkowo mało z nich na poważnie traktuje próbę odpowiedzi na inne kluczowe pytanie: jak zrobić kurs, który po prostu będzie dobry?

Media obecne są we wszystkich obszarach życia, kształtując otaczającą nas rzeczywistość, ale też stanowiąc jej odbicie. W przestrzeni mediów rozwija się przedsiębiorczość, promowane są rozmaite style życia, kształtują się relacje społeczne. Media intensywnie wkraczają też w naszą codzienność, obecne są w niej w różnych odmianach i formach.
Podejmowane rozważania dotyczyć będą dwóch głównych zagadnień, z jednej strony obecności mediów w przestrzeni społecznej, z drugiej obrazu przestrzeni społecznej w mediach.

In the framework of the project Erasmus+ PRODOME, the study "The state of the art of domestic work in Europe" (deliverable 1) has been produced, based on desk and field research involving 54 experts and 109 domestic housekeepers via semi-directive interviews, a Delphi exercise and questionnaires.

The main findings are the following ones:

Flexible Education Norway (Fleksibel Utdanning Norge; FuN) is an organisation that aims to develop online teaching methods and to support research and development of methods and techniques in the field of flexible education. The organisation published in 2017 a quality guide in Norwegian for online educators. The guide has been translated to English, in cooperation with the European Association for Distance Learning (EADL).

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has launched a toolkit that can be used to utilise students’ digital capabilities to support teaching, learning and assessment. Both the toolkit and a report that details the researcher’s findings can be downloaded from the ETF Excellence Gateway website.

It is a multilingual Learning Management System developed with the aim to equip learners with knowledge, abilities and skills that allow them to enter the entrepreneurial world, via Industry 4.0 and Drone Technology, in order to yield the related opportunities. It includes a course, trainer guidelines, evaluation tools and e-learning platform.

Technology Skills 2022: Ireland’s Third ICT Skills Action Plan sets out priority actions to meet Ireland’s needs for graduates skilled in computing and electronic and electrical engineering to support and drive economic performance over the coming years.

The plan is informed by research conducted by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN). The ambitious targets in the plan will increase the total number of graduates with high-level ICT skills by more than 5,000 every year by 2022. 

This is an Erasmus+ funded project which aims to design and implement effective training tools for enhancing key skills and competences of (a) highly-skilled refugees and (b) the language teachers who work with them, and so enhance the employability and societal integration of skilled refugees.
