The project’s priorities have been designed keeping in mind the proposed goals and the expected results. We consider that this project has the main goal of contributing considerably to the development and improvement of adult people’s basic skills, specifically their digital skills and the will to “learning to learn”.
We have thoroughly analyzed the directives “Adult Learners in Digital Learning Environments” (EAC-2013-0563) and “An in-depth analysis of adult learning policies and their effectiveness in Europe”, published in 2013 by the General Direction of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion from the European Commission, in order to establish the proper activities and indicators to achieve the objectives defined by the EU.
Thanks to the conclusions drawn from this, educational pathways for Adult People Training will be developed, adapted to EU’s guidelines, and will be supported by an innovative methodology that encourages adult people to improve their basic skills as a mean to actively participate in solving Europe’s social problems.
This process will lead to the priority of ADULT EDUCATION: IMPROVING AND EXTENDING THE SUPPLY OF HIGH QUALITY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES TAILORED TO THE NEEDS OF INDIVIDUAL LOW-SKILLED OR LOW-QUALIFIED ADULTS.
Another fundamental objective is the promotion of the HORIZONTAL PRIORITY: SOCIAL INCLUSION through new mechanisms for inclusive education and for the integration of refugees and migrant people. We believe that all educational processes should be adapted to the historic and social environment in which they are developed, helping to overcome social crises. Furthermore, we understand that this kind of projects improve learning quality, because they do not only provide knowledge to the students (both European and migrant ones), but also tools for personal, social, and occupational development.
Thanks to the project “VIRTUAL INCLUSIVE EDUCATION FOR ADULT PEOPLE: VOLUNTEERS AND REFUGEES”, we will not only provide basic and digital skills to adult people, but we’ll also grant them a full social and labor inclusion. This is thanks to being able to certificate their knowledge, create solidarity networks between European adults and refugees, and bringing the users into contact with social organizations that can help them (in the case of Europeans) or to ask for help (in the case of migrants and refugees).
