On November 8 and 9, 2021, we welcomed our partners in Athens from the “Digital Technologies to Improve Adult Learning“ program, carried out within the frameworks of Erasmus+. This is a program developed through the cooperation of six organizations, from 5 different countries: Musiques de Nuit and Le LABA from France, Ländliche Erwachsenenbildung Thüringen eV from Germany, European E-learning Institute from Denmark, Momentum educate + innovate from Ireland, Learning Hub Friesland from the Netherlands and Hellenic Adult Education Association from Greece.
DIGITAL and its results
DIGITAL aims to strengthen competence and mobilize educators, working with low-qualified or less-experienced adults, to use digital learning strategies and tools in order to promote their professional and personal development.
The result of this project was the creation of a Good Practice Compendium, a digital edition that encourages knowledge sharing and learning among Adult Education organizations by identifying and sharing innovative approaches to the application of digital teaching and learning. In addition, a DIGITAL toolbox was introduced, an interactive version including the 23 best digital learning tools, which were tested by the program partners and which also includes methods and instructions for application and use of these tools. Finally, the DIGITAL Online-Course was created, a short online seminar offered to educators in order to enhance their digital skills and use digital learning tools with confidence.
The meeting in Athens
On the agenda of Monday’s program was the meeting of the project’s partners in our offices in Athens, where the results of the program were discussed and followed by its evaluation. Tuesday was dedicated to the guided tour of our collaborators at the Museum and the Archaeological Site of the Acropolis.
An open event came next at the President Hotel, during which presentations of the program and the partners took place, followed by a workshop on the practical application of the program tools. We received feedback from participants about the developed tools, which is particularly important for both improving the tools themselves as well as ourselves.
So another program is coming to an end. A circle closes, yet many new will open!
