New knowledge from Europe brings new possibilities to staff and adult learners:

• more exible learning environments using digital tools and new educational solutions in the class- room;

• fewer dropouts from studies;

• inspired sta spreading knowledge to colleagues and adult learners.

These are the main effects of an Erasmus+ mobility project for adult learning staff in the city of Sundbyberg in Sweden. Adult education in the city of Sundbyberg offers studies and vocational guidance to all its inhabitants. You can read at the elementary school level, high school level or attend a vocational education. By studying courses in adult education, it becomes easier for many to find a job and to apply for higher education or polytechnic.

The aim of the project was to develop new learning environments using digital tools and to search for new educational solutions in the classroom. The teachers have done this by attending various international courses in flexible learning. It involved, among other things, how digitalization in the school activities should be planned and implemented, how digital tools should be used and how to use strategies to get the adult learners to take more responsibility for their studies.

«We have ful filled the EU’s overall goals for lifelong learning and mobility, as well as improving quality and results in education. We have gained much better understanding of internationalization. Our school is really a part of lifelong learning in Europe» says Irina Sadakova, teacher and project leaders.
