International project: Digital VET for all - co-existing in the digital era (Digital VET 4 all)

This project aims to increase the resilience and capacity through digital readiness of teachers.


The primary aim of this project is to offer VET teachers of several vocational fields across Europe a chance to co-create and co-experiment innovative practices when developing digital learning and teaching materials that improve the students’ vocational skills and key competences for lifelong learning. In this project a teachers’ virtual room and a model for hybrid mobility for Erasmus+ KA1 projects are created. The aim is to offer a platform for co-experimenting virtually, thus promoting the importance of sharing knowledge and expertise and spreading ideas between different disciplines.

The common theme in this project is inclusion with the aim that digital teaching methods should be accessible for all students despite their age, background or ability. The needed elements of inclusion should be included into teaching methods, virtual material created and its presentation

The project aims to tackle the challenges of inclusion and equity in virtual teaching and learning environments. This project provides teachers a virtual space for sharing information on inclusive teaching method

Project objectives

  • The overall objective of this project is to bring European VET teachers together online to experiment, create and share virtual and digital experiences and practices. Teachers have only too few possibilities to share their thoughts and doubts with national and international peers, especially in the present era of restrictions. The primary aim of this project is to offer teachers in VET from different disciplines across Europe a chance to co-create and co-experiment innovative practices when developing digital learning and teaching material that develop the students’ vocational skills and key competences for lifelong learning
  • Together with the development of VET teachers’ digital competences the aim is to develop and pilot a new approach to hybrid mobilities in VET. This is done by introducing different virtual elements to all stages of physical mobility of VET learners and staff alike. These elements include virtual preparation and coaching of participants as well as online goal discussions together with the receiving companies/organisations and constant communication with the participants during their mobility periods via virtual/online tools as well as conducting the final evaluation discussion between the participants, sending institution and receiving company/organisation via online tools. The aim is to include as many vocational fields that have been affected by the COVID-19 situation as possible
  • The content of the project will be produced with different approaches: Virtual visits, experiments of collaboration of school workshops in different regions/countries (i.e. teaching restaurants, hair salons, technical workshops etc.), AR/MR experiments, co-creation experiments between teachers etc. The target groups are VET teachers and students primarily in the partner countries but also in whole

Outcomes

The project contributes to promote future and transferable skills, providing: -

  • an overall framework on digital innovation - methodologies and best practices on active learning processes
  • new methodological approaches
  • quality relationships among teachers, students and labour market
  • strengthening the profiles of the teaching profession
  • ossibilities to virtual internationalisation without travelling abroad
