Digital literacy for migrants: Case study on multiplicator seminars, conducted within the framework of the European UPTAKE ICT project

December 2016

This case study has been produced within the framework of the European UPTAKE ICT project, which promotes actions, to analyse the impact of ICT in a fast changing world and, to build contents and instruments for digital inclusion.

The project with support of the European Union has developed a Mooc-enhanced course program, addressing a broad range of ICT-related  skills and competences, needed to meet the demands of the digital society. The course program comprises a set of modular learning units, suitable for novice, advanced and experienced learners. It offers lessons on the use of computers, search engines and email services, how to use social media and build websites, but also how to program mobile applications. To name only a few.

In the case study we present the first findings from a series of trainings conducted in Germany. The purpose was to test and evaluate the course program with regard to its fitness for purpose, that is its effectiveness towards digital inclusion and digital literacy.

pdf Pauliina Alenius: Informal learning processes of migrants in the civil society: a transnational perspective

By Tagged in informal, learning, migrants

The aim of the article is to examine the informal learning processes of migrants particularly in relation to their social engagements in associations, informal groups and transnational networks in the Estonia-Finland space. The theoretical framework relates to socio-cultural, situated learning tradition as well as transnational migration studies. In educational research, transnational perspectives are still relatively new and little explored. The research data (98 interviews) were analysed following theoryguided content analysis.

Diverse learning trajectories in relation to the informants’ associational engagement were identified. Engagement in various social groups in transnational environments had widened the informants’ perspectives and understanding, enabling them to explore differences in societal conceptions and practices. Some of the informants had been acting as transnational brokers, conveying conceptions and practices between communities across national borders. There is a need to examine migrants’ learning trajectories in relation to their social engagements not only in the country of settlement but also in transnational spaces.
