  • 3. Scope of the PresentationPresentation of the training approach aimed atEuropean Women Interactive Learning
  • 4. What is the issue that has to be resolved? • It has been noticed, through researches and surveys that the involvement of women with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a percentage is significant lower to that of men • Often women are excluded from labour market if they stay unemployed for a long period of time (e.g. due to motherhood) • The number of women taking part in leading positions in organizations and corporations is limited • Women are under-represented at all levels in the ICT sector Desirable situationA training approach has been (in terms of knowledge,developed that aims to skills, attitudes, etc)a) The acquirement of Basic ICT -What does create that distance?knowledge and skills and -How this distance can beb) The use of those in an interactive and eliminated?user friendly way.

  • 9. Target group features analysis 1/3 Cognitive Features• They have little to no prior knowledge of computers literacy• It is not a precondition that the learners will have computer skills• Their knowledge around sophisticated cultural issues may vary• The way the prefer to learn is via cultural references• The learners may have some knowledge of educational and social circumstances of the region they live in (due to their career choices)• Prefer to acquire knowledge through experience (Hands-on-job Training, Learning by doing)• Prefer to learn with e-tools that offer high level of interactivity• Prefer the whole experience should be as user friendly as possible and additionally to attract them, having in mind the demanding working schedule Psychosocial Features Psychosocial features• The learners are precarious workers/part time workers/unemployed• They are working in the education sector or working in the social sector• The cultural background of the trainees varies, since they come from different parts of the European continent• Their views about e-learning and technology in general, vary• They are interested about cultural issues of the country they live in, as long as the cultural issues and customs of other countries Demographic Features• The learners are female• They are 35 years old or more• In terms of ethnicity, the learners are located in European region• Their language background is different, but all of them have good knowledge of the English language

  • 11. Models/guidelines of the training approachThe models used for the development of this training approach are Mastery in Learning Model Direct Instruction Modelthat both of them suggest:• Clear learning objectives have to be set for learners to achieve• Information should be introduced to each learner in a way that meets the learning objectives set in the previous step• The learner is responsible for his/her own learning• After the presentation of information the learners must be evaluated in order to be estimated whether the learning objectives, set in the beginning were achieved or notThe training events follow the Gagnés nine events of instruction.
