EWIL future steps

  1. 1. European Women Interactive Learning GRUNDTVIG Learning Partnership PROPOSED FUTURE STEPS
  2. 2. 1) THE PROJECT SPECIFIC AIMS We would like to propose a possible development of project activities, from now on, allowing to achieve THE PROJECT EXPECTED OBJECTIVES 1. identify ICT based methods and tools to motivate and stimulate women to learn in different non – formal learning contexts (PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS: GOOD PROGRESS SO FAR) 2. provide women with a practical learning experience based on ICT, to be tested on a group of women for the acquisition of competencies in the cultural field (MORE DETAILS IN THE NEXT SLIDES) 3. disseminate the experience (SUCCESSFULLY ONGOING)
  3. 3. 2) CONSIDERATIONS 1Due to:  budget constraints  the lack of the main technological partner included in the project consortium at the beginning (= in the application form)  the aims and scope of the project (= learning partnership, not larger, more complex project) The option of creating an ICT tool to be tested during the project is not sustainable
  4. 4. 3) THE WORK DONE SO FAR WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE – ELEMENTS TO BUILD ON 1) The preliminary analysis made by the Lifelong Learning Research Institute on motivational ICT learning approaches 2) The results (and related presentation) of the online questionnaire which have been discussed this morning 3) Suitable cultural contents to be proposed for the learning experience among the ones proposed by CCL and selected by the questionnaire respondents 4) The partners experiences 5) A suitable basin of potential testers for each country
  5. 5. 4) THE WAY AHEAD WHAT WE PROPOSE: To combine the existing elements to 1) Develop a flexible training path 2) To be tested and experienced with the project targets: - women - 35 + - with precarious, part time or no job - working in the social or educational field 3) Allowing them to acquire 4 “key learning competencies” - Digital competencies - “Learning to learn” - Cultural awareness and expression - Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
  6. 6. 5) WHAT WE PROPOSE – 1 Specifically, for project objective n. 2: “provide women with a practical learning experience based on ICT, to be tested on a group of women for the acquisition of competencies in the cultural field”:1. we suggest to test not an ICT tool, but rather a methodology and a training path that we will define during EWIL activities, putting together partners experiences2. We propose that each partner organises a demo practical experience, with the support of one specific tool identified in the methodology (the tool the partner is most familiar with).3. the testing phase could be done at national level, involving a small group of women for each country, who will experience EWIL methodology and communicate with the other groups4. with a double aim, consistent with EWIL objective: • To become familiar with ICT tools • To start the non – formal training process, by put in contact homogeneous target groups
  7. 7. 6) WHAT WE PROPOSE – 21) TO REFINE AND COMBINE THE MENTIONED ELEMENTS TO STUDY AND PROPOSE SOME METHODOLOGICAL GUIDELINES for the use of ICT to foster the target group learning process. This could include:o An introduction presenting the preliminary analysis made by the LLRI on motivational ICT learning approacheso A 1st section illustrating (very briefly) which are the possible instruments to be exploited for ICT – based learningo A 2nd section on cultural contents available to be transferredo A 3rd section illustrating the online questionnaire genesis and resultso A 4th section with best practices, projects and examples from the partners’ experience (and others)o A 5th section proposing, on the basis of the previous sections / elements, a suitable training path
  8. 8. 7) WHAT WE PROPOSE – 3 IN ORDER TO DEFINE THE TRAINING PATH, WE SHOULD IDENTIFY o The aims of the learning process (e.g. competencies to be acquired) o The target group of the learning process o The motivations of the target group o The contents to be transferred
  9. 9. 7) WHAT WE PROPOSE – 4 2) TO EXPERIMENT THE MENTIONED METHODOLOGY / TRAINING PATH IN SMALL GROUPS OF TESTERS AT NATIONAL LEVEL (6 participants for each group?) by organising small meetings (three in each country?) to:o Explain the project genesis, aims and structureo Experiment the identified learning path with the testers, as a learning process to acquire / propose cultural contents through the guided, pro- active use of ICTo Discuss the results with the group of testers and submit to them a self - evaluation questionnaire on the key competencies acquiredThe small groups have to include: •- Women of 35 years old or more •- Outside formal learning systems •- Being precarious workers/part time workers / unemployed •- Working in the education sector or in the social sector
  10. 10. 8) WHAT WE PROPOSE – 5 3) TO PUT EACH NATIONAL GROUP IN TOUCH TO BETTER EXCHANGE VIEWS 4) TO INVITE ONE MEMBER OF EACH “NATIONAL GROUP” having a good command of English to the “testing meeting” IN TURKEY in April (if possible: end of April? More time to prepare!)
  11. 11. 9) WHAT WE PROPOSE – 65) TO DISCUSS THE RESULTS OF NATIONAL TESTS IN GAZIANTEP MEETING (APRIL 2012) and to refine the proposed training path / methodology accordingly In this way the Gaziantep meeting will include: • An enlargement of the project working group to the target group • A suitable method to adapt the proposed training path to the needs and constraints of the project target group • A “real life check” of the results of the project
