Non-formal and informal learning

From sept the23d and Oct the 2nd , all the partners of VIRAL for Local communities project attended the second learning teaching training meeting. Ten days to work together to learn how to make a VR video, from the script to the editing. All the video shooted can be seen and tested at the "VR TEST POINT" sattled at the public library in Santa Croce sukl'Arno-Pisa, Italy. Whoever can wear the visor and have a VR experience. People are then asked to fill in a form to express their impressions and feelings. All the collected datas will be useful to improve the final output. 

After two years of continuous work, our Erasmus+ strategic partnership "Languages, Opening Gates to Society" (LOGS) has finished. Four organizations from  four different European countries were involved: 

  • The Finnish Folk High School, Gothenburg, Sweden (coordinator)
  • CFA Catalonia, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain (partner)
  • Jazyková škola Poprad, Czech republic (partner)
  • Tartu Folk High School, Tartu, Estonia (partner)

The objectives of projects were:

The second LTT scheduled for the VIRAL project takes place in Italy between the municipalities of Santa Croce sull'Arno and San Miniato. During this Learning Teaching Training session, all the contents and tools necessary to compose the final tool kit will be developed. The central part of this LTT meeting is in any case the technical part that has the aim of making a video in virtual reality: all the partners have learned to use the video camera and make a video and they will bring this know-how to their respective associations and then write and shoot their videos.

In our transforming society lack of digital skills in the elderly population is synonymous to social isolation; inability to access information and services, including health services; loss of autonomy, and an increased sense of inadaptability.

Gaziantep Şehitkamil Municipality opened a  computer operator course at Pirsultan Internet House in order to help students evaluate summer holiday efficiently. Pirsultan Internet House is a place founded by Şehitkamil Municipality for public and adult education.The students who attended the course received 163 hours of training for 2 months.

At the end of the summer of 2019, the DIAL project comes to an end presenting not only the expected but also fruitful results with added value. The team has developed an active and demanded teaching platform, has organized pilot tests and actual trainings with the main target groups of the project. Furthermore, the project’s leading partner follows the example and makes first steps towards Senior University in Latvia. 

After the borders of the European Union opened, Lithuania has been seeing an increase in the number of black people arriving in Lithuania. It is no surprise in most of the major cities, especially, in Vilnius. However, the residents of remote smaller towns of Lithuania still find it unusual: they glare at such people and are not keen to accept them into their rural communities.

#ErasmusDays2019, the EPALE teams wished to raise awareness about the European Union commitment in adult lifelong learning. They created a digital exhibition with 28 different projects, demonstrating the variety of practices across Europe.

WELCOME FESTIVAL Arcella Edition

Parlare di apprendimento degli adulti significa pensare non solo ai percorsi formali di istruzione e alla formazione professionale, ma anche alle occasioni di crescita personale e sociale in contesti informali e alle attività di educazione non formale. Per questo riteniamo significativo segnalare un festival che intende offrire numerose occasioni per “conoscere”, conoscere un territorio, le persone che vi abitano, le risorse inaspettate a due passi da casa, le storie di altre parti del mondo, implicazioni sociali e politiche, elementi di innovazione sociale ed urbana.

The Family Skills project has released a Family Skills Toolkit to assist parents and carers who are still developing their own language skills and caring for children who are also building English ESOL skills. It contains weekly sessions, resources and activities and is free – those interested in obtaining a copy should use the link provided.

In the context of the support to the setting up of a national system for Validation of non-formal and informal learning in North Macedonia, as a top priority of the political agenda for adult education in the period 2016 -2020, our Center supported the development of the document: “VNFIL in E

UNESCO’s education programmes help improve lives across the globe.

Since its origins, UNESCO has advocated  for expanded opportunities for women’s and  girls’ education. The Education 2030 Agenda  adds new impetus to ensure that both  get equal opportunities, in formal and  non-formal education.

Often, the concept and activities of Popular Education is considered as "French idea". Nevertheless, some researchers have wrote on it, trying to distinguish what is Non formal education or Adult education in comparison with Popular education.

Valorize NFIL Across Europe is an Erasmus plus KA2 Adult started in 2018.

STARTING NEEDS:

Council Recommendation of 20th December 2012 on the validation of non-formal and informal learning (NFIL) started an European common process the involved quite all UE countries.

Many researches put in evidence that this process shows 2 problems:

Ernesto VILLALBA GARCIA's picture

Everyone learns outside formal institutions, but the needs to validate non-formal and informal learning might be different for a migrant wanting to start working, a person that dropped out of school that wants to resume education or an employee that wants to improve its career prospects. Do we need different systems for each of those users? Can we just have one system that meets all their needs? 

Simon BROEK's picture

Do we actually learn more by formalising learning? There is a tendency to formalise learning. The most prominent development is the establishment of Qualifications Frameworks and Accreditation of Prior Learning systems. Both initiatives are based on the assumption that learning can be described in terms of learning outcomes.

Thinking in terms of learning outcomes is not a bad thing. As a proxy, it clarifies what people learn; it focuses the development of learning programmes; it allows recognition of prior learning against agreed standards.
