Con le recenti disposizioni inerenti la chiusura di attività produttive, uffici, università e scuole, formazione a distanza - nota anche come apprendimento online, apprendimento digitale o e-learning - è divenuto passato un metodo comune per seguire corsi e rafforzare le competenze a ogni livello : le aziende la formazione per la formazione dei dipendenti, i professionisti per gli aggiornamenti, gli studenti di tutte le età per approfondire la disciplina scolastica, conseguire master o imparare le lingue.

Risulta evidente che crea di formazione nell'e-learning. Notiamo certamente di creare una conoscenza condivisa su temi specifici che interessano diverse competenze e quindi, quindi, un volano valido per il conseguimento di concreti obiettivi di innovazione sul piano organizzativo e sul piano tecnologico. Secondo uno studio di Technavio Research ("Mercato globale dell'apprendimento a distanza per tipologia e geografia") il mercato crescerà del 9% annuo nel periodo 2019-2023, aggiungendo un valore di 90 miliardi di dollari per fornitore tecnologico e fornitori di corsi grazie alle attività di apprendimento in rete e formazione a distanza di università e apprendimento pubblico e privato.

In quest'ottica, il monitoraggio dei risultati delle strutture di e-learning è divenuto un elemento indispensabile da cui partire per esaltare il concetto di apprendimento centrato sullo studente, ovvero l'idea che con l'e-learning la formazione sia incentrata sul discente , con l'aiuto di trasformarlo da semplice "fruitore" ad artefice (almeno in parte) del percorso di apprendimento; focalizzando l'attenzione su di esso.

Un'ottica di questo tipo intende aiutare i discenti a gestire i corsi in base alle proprie esigenze migliorando la qualità della formazione, nel rispetto dei diversi tempi di apprendimento. Tuttavia, in questi ultimi anni numerosi studi hanno evidenziato come la raccolta di dati e informazioni riguardanti la ricaduta ei benefici di tali attività hanno avuto su chi le ha frequentato non corrispondente alla costante espansione dei corsi di e-learning, avvenuta anche attraverso la diffusione di piattaforme MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses).

Per ovviare a tale mancanza, attraverso il progetto "ASTRE - Sistema automatico di tracciamento dell' e-learning", finanziato dalla Commissione Europea sul capitolo dedicato all'internazionalizzazione delle competenze; ERASMUS PLUS KA2: Cooperazione per l'innovazione e lo scambio di buone pratiche - Partenariati strategici per l'educazione degli adulti, ci si propone di realizzare un sistema di monitoraggio degli stessi, con l'aggiornamento del pubblico e migliorare la loro rilevanza e qualità.

I partner del progetto sono l'Università Politecnica di Valencia - Spagna, Università dell'Egeo Panepistimio Aigaiou - Grecia, Associazione europea dei coordinatori Erasmus - Cipro, l'Aintek Symvouloi Epicheiriseon Efarmoges Ypsilis Technologias Ekpaidefsi Anonymi Etaireia - Grecia, la Friedrich- Alexander- Universitaet Erlangen Nuernberg - Germania e Università Telematica Pegaso - Italia che si avvarrà della collaborazione dell'Associazione “NOI-Napoli Open Innovation”.

Per l'Italia il referente scientifico del progetto è il Prof. Costantino Formica - docente di Economia degli intermediari finanziari, Presidente del Presidio di Qualità, Delegato del Rettore per il Job Placement & Career, Presidente dell'Associazione NOI - affiancato dal Prof. Eugenio D'Angelo, docente di Economia e Gestione delle Imprese e dal dott. Rino Prota, esperto di formazione, in rappresentanza dell'Associazione NOI.

Design of adult learning courses

IDEC participates as partner in the project DEMAL that developed two e-learning courses for staff in adult education sector:

  • Design of adult learning
  • Evaluation of adult learning

The first course on Design has been launched and will run until the 20th of May 2018. The course consists of six units of learning outcomes, plus a closing and requires approximately 24 hours of self-learning, spread over a period of eight weeks. The participants that will complete the course and pass all assignments successfully will get a certificate of attendance. If you are interested to register and attend the course, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to Thalys course program
  2. Go to Create a new account, fill-in the form and create your account. Remember to keep your username and password, as you will need them to access the e-learning
  3. An e-mail will be sent to your e-mail address, with instructions to validate your account. Click on the link.
  4. You will access the course as student. The enrolement key for student is Demal_design_student
  5. You can now access the course and start your learning journey.

The course is structured in units. Each unit includes an introductory presentation, the core learning material, additional learning material, a closing presentation and one of more assignments. Some assignments are compulsory and you have to complete them, before the end of the course, before 20 of May. After that, you will still have access to the course material, without the option to do the assignments and get a certificate.

The course language is English and it will be attended at the same time by participants from five countries. It will give you the opportunity not only to access the learning resources, but also to discuss with other participants and exchange your experiences in adult learning. The second e-learning course on Evaluation is expected to start in April and there will be a separate invitation.

We wish you a nice e-learning and we expect to meet you online.

 

EduTeach is an international, interdisciplinary and collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ program. The aim of the EduTeach project is to design, test and implement a modular training program adapted to the needs and interests of those responsible in education and care for young children (0-6 years) across Europe. To allow both flexible and individual learning, the training offers will be based on ICT and incorporate a fair balance between interactive and self-study learning activities. Using results from a user needs analysis and evaluations of the implementation of trainings, EduTeach further tends to forward research and development on models, methods, and didactic strategies for effective online training to educators, preschool teachers and education directors.

The rapid adoption of internet-enabled phone and tablets has revolutionised the way we live and work, but not yet in too many cases the way students are taught in vocational training or higher education. Although digital and mobile resources are proven to increase adult learner engagement and information retention, yet only 1 in 5 students are taught by digitally confident and supportive teachers. This absence of integration of digital learning tools is mainly caused by lack of confidence and training and as a result, very few students across Europe are taught material aided and supported by digital supports.

The TALOE project intends to promote the internal consistency of online courses by using the ALOA model (Aligning Learning Outcomes and Assessment) and developing a web-tool to help teachers and trainers decide on the e-assessment strategies to use in their online courses.

This web-tool is aimed to raise teachers' awareness about the variety of e-assessment strategies in order to achieve better quality of the learning process. TALOE assumes that a teacher/trainer will describe the learning outcomes of the course or module and then use the TALOE web-tool online to analyse them and provide the most appropriated e-assessment strategy that is consistent with the set of intended learning outcomes.

TACCLE2

A key output of the first TACCLE project (www.taccle.eu) was a handbook for teachers wanting to introduce e-learning into their practice. There was also a series of training events for teachers based on the handbook. Both the handbook and the courses were rated highly by teachers but feedback from readers and from course participants was that there were still ‘gaps’ that needed to be filled.

#Uptake_ICT2life-cycle

The strategic partnership will promote actions, at a national and international scale with the purpose of building contents, digital instruments and analyzing the impact of ICT in a global world. It will pay special attention to learners that have never used the Internet and with disadvantaged backgrounds. It aims to help people facing the process of civilizational change (social, political, economic, and cultural) and, consequently, to shape the needs of future generations.

Be it because they lack the knowledge or because they lack motivation or opportunity, older people are traditionally excluded from Information & Communication Technologies (ICT). So a partnership was created to encourage senior citizens motivation and knowledge about ICT, thus helping to overcome the exclusion of elder people in the field. The project made use of non formal education and innovative methods, to address older people’s learning needs.
