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.

Despite the annual tourism statistics, which emphasise an increasing number of visitors to European wineries, training courses on wine tourism are rare. Indeed, to this day, only two universities offer training in the œnotourism sector, those being Universidade Lusófona in Portugal and Universidad de Salamanca in Spain.

At least 1 in 8 students are neurodiverse (this includes conditions such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, ASD and Developmental Language Disorders) but not all students arrive at college with a diagnosis or have had previous support for a variety of reasons. This may include moving around the education system (Looked after Young People) and lower recognition of traits in females.

Using online robust tools for screening for neurodiversity and assessing studying skills at induction allows for practical and student-centred support for those who require it in a timely manner.

Interactive apps can also support the student when moving from college into work. The Do-IT Profiler accessible web-based system allows this to happen.

Most research has shown that there are at least 1 in 3 people in prison who have one or more Learning Difficulty and/or Disabilities. Different conditions have been included under this umbrella such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Dyslexia, Dyspraxia (also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder) (DCD) or Dyscalculia, Developmental Language Disorders (DLD), and Learning Disabilities. While often considering each condition in isolation, the reality is that they all often overlap and so each person will have a unique pattern of strengths and challenges. Up till now it has been difficult to deliver a practical means of identifying needs and delivering practical support. Using neuroscience and technology, this can now be achieved.

EPALE-Webinar: Das Social Media Update: Instagram

Welche Möglichkeiten bietet Instagram, wie nutzt man die Plattform möglichst effizient und welche Herausforderungen muss man kennen? Antworten und Erklärungen dazu liefert das Webinar in 5 Schritten. Praktische Beispiele inklusive.

An Cosán Virtual Community College (An Cosán VCC) with the support of EPALE Ireland held its third annual "Community Partner Forum" on Wednesday 29th of May in NDRC, Dublin 8. This presentation addresses the theme of "Global, National and local: The Role of Technology in Shaping the Future of Education and Work".  

These presentations from An Cosán VCC's Annual Partner Forum, are by Mark Kelly of An Cosán VCC's Skills to Succeed Academy and Kieran Farrell of Accenture Interactive, and introduce An Cosán VCC's S2S Academy, an e-learning tool which aim to develop a digital competency assessment tool and curriculum, and Accenture's Digital Stepping Stones, which hopes to address the digital divide in Ireland.

These presentations are from An Cosán VCC's recent annual "Community Partner Forum" addressing the theme of "Inspiring local leadership to embrace innovation" and include three presentations from organisers of inovative community and social entreprenueship projects from throughout Ireland. 

This is a final report of "DigiWBL" project (Digital Methods in Work Based Learning in Vocational Education). In this Erasmus+ Strategig partnership project Central Ostobothnia Vocational College (Kpedu, FI), Myerscough College (UK) and Joniskis Agricultural College (LT) built a network to exchange experiences and benchmark how digital tools and methods are used in work based learning (WBL) periods of adult students in vocational education.

The purpose of this paper is to explain the definition, dimensions, and effects of the concept of Digital Citizenship, which comes into our lives because of the development of information and communication technologies. Accordingly, this paper focuses on the concept of e-government, online shopping, internet banking, and social networks and discusses the important concerns in the light of in-depth literature review.

Certification of education and training is not a new concept in Denmark or other countries, as several forms of certification and accreditation already exist, but certifying vocational courses offered via e-learning is a new development. In this context, e-learning is treated as an overarching term which encompasses blended learning as well as purely web-based learning (distance learning). The pilot certification scheme covers descriptions of the objectives, content and organisation of e-learning courses, taking into account the participants’ prior learning.

Looking for a flexible, interactive and, above all, a practical training course that will make it easier to plan classes and interact with your students using digital instruments and tools? E-trainers.eu is a great opportunity for you to become a more competent digital teacher.

Najčešći uzroci neuspešnog onlajn obrazovanja u visokoobrazovnom kontekstu proizilaze iz tendencije da se tradicionalne obrazovne postavke implementiraju u onlajn obrazovna okruženja. Preciznije, visokoškolski nastavnici u onlajn obrazovanju se često posmatraju kao superiorni nosioci znanja i njihova simplifikovana uloga je da ta znanja prenesu studentima, dok su studenti pasivni usvojioci znanja.
