Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for adult education
Name of the project
Digital inclusion of adults – let’s learn from examples of good practices
Duration of the project
21 months: 1.09.2019 – 31.05.2021
The DigiAdults project intends to explore end evaluate the impact of the use of digital tools and the Internet in the empowerment of a variety of categories of learners at risk of social marginalisation, then drawing out implications of findings in terms of guidelines for trainers involved in formal, nonformal and informal education, and generating a collection of case studies and best practices, assembled on an online resource center.
The Partnership intends to address this issues by:
- Exploring the way digital tools can be used to empower people in a personal and professional perspective, and as citizens and consumers;
- Exploring new approaches and methodologies to promote digital inclusion through the identification of individual motivations and needs, followed by effective steps to improve technical abilities;
- Drawing out implications of findings in terms of guidelines for trainers involved;
- Creating an online resource center hosting a collection of case studies and best practices.
In order to achieve such objectives, the approach considered by the Partnership primarily involves mapping digital literacy practices, programs and methodologies developed through the use of ICT, as well as tools involved in such practices, supporting various groups of persons at risk of social marginalisation.
Partners then test a series of such tools (through workshops, courses or any other type of non-formal or informal educational activities), each with their respective target group, present to each other and compare testing results, and ultimately collate guidelines for trainers involved in formal, non-formal and informal education, and a collection of case studies and best practices.
