ERASMUS+ DISK Project

 

For the last couple of years (2019-2022) I have been a partner in the  ERASMUS+ DISK Project  Digital Immigrants Survival Kit

Objectives of the DISK project

The objectives are to create, implement and evaluate 15 modules teaching various specific topics related to everyday life covering DCs as a “Digital Immigrants Survival Kit” (DISK), to use flipped learning 3.0 as the training approach, to create an innovative self-evaluation tool based on competency-based self-evaluation mandalas, to create a transferability and implementation guide, to transfer the results and outcomes in a flexible way in other European countries and finally to publish the modules of the DISK Toolkit as Open Educational Resources (OER).

Partners

The consortium consists of 5 partners (3 adult education organizations, one university, and a specialist in course quality & Open Educational Resources OER) with complementary skills, experiences, and approaches to adult education.

The applicant is the University of Porto, which will focus on adults with lower levels of education and create opportunities for their further education, inclusion, and full participation as European Citizens and for their survival in a digitalized world. 3 Adult Training organizations are well distributed in Europe and have complementary approaches to Adult Education: EDRASE, GR is well-experienced in training in remote places, EFQBL, AT has a specific focus on older people while Training 2000, IT is a professional AE training organization providing training to all ages of adults. Ossiannilsson Quality in Open Online Learning (QOOL) Consultancy is a Swedish organization that specialized in quality training and the publishing of OER.

Project’s results

Digital Competencies

The results can be expressed as serve in nano, micro, meso and macro levels.

NANO

The nano level addresses digitalization (which means the application of digitized information in practice)
This result is integrated into each module.

MICRO & MESH

Products and outcomes of the IOs represent the micro and mesh level. 15 well-developed, tested, and evaluated modules to support adults to act as active independent citizens in a digital world. These courses will be made available under a Creative Commons CC BY-SA 4.0 license as OERs.

A transferability guide as a support to trainers in other training environments to use the project’s results and to keep the courses open to further development (continuous development adapted to the changes in the digitized world)

MESH

Results of the training (represent mesh level)
Approx. 120 adults will take part in the modules and build the first group of more experienced users in the digital landscape.

MACRO

Sustainable results (macro level)
The developed courses will be used by the AE organizations taking part in this project (EDRASE, EBI/EIE, and training2000) as part of their course program. These organizations will care for the further development and sustainability of these courses.

List of results during the project’s lifetime – these are the elements that lead to the Digital Immigrants Survival kit (toolkit, course modules)

  • Competence Map (fitting to the described modules of the Toolkit)
  • Developed training content
  • Training path and pilot testing
  • OERs
  • Transferability and implementation guide

On completion a ready-to-use set of 15 training modules are available.
