Main project results:

Establishment of conditions at the project partner schools that foster the use of digital technologies for teaching and learning in the vocational education and training (VET) system: development and implementation of school strategies for an effective implementation of blended learning; support to VET teachers in planning and implementing blended learning and development of VET teachers’ digital competences to create and use e-learning solutions.

Project summary:

Digital competencies are key to today’s and tomorrow’s world of work, and Vocational Education and Training (VET) needs to keep pace with these developments. It is not enough to introduce digital competencies into the curricula, but education itself needs to be redesigned, as education is currently not keeping pace with the potential of digital developments. A didactic solution that addresses this issue is blended learning (any educational activity that combines traditional classroom activities (in person, book and pencil) with activities that use digital technology). The project therefore addresses the need of VET providers to get focused professional support to introduce blended learning in their daily practice. Project will provide several concrete results among which the most important are training for teachers and headmasters to support the implementation of blended learning, evaluation of piloting of blended learning at schools, compendium of best practices of teacher plans and developed digital teaching and learning materials. The pre-defined project fosters cooperation between the Donor States and Slovenia, empowering students by including them in the development of digital learning materials, and creates online communities of headmasters, VET teachers and ICT professionals for joint development, mutual learning and exchange of experiences.
