One of the most important phases in a project is to stablish the scenario in where we are going to act.
For us, our scenario is the VET sector, specifically the teachers that we have in different countries teaching everyday in this environment.
The main goal to achieve in Work Packagge 1 in this project refers to understand the reality of each country regarding VET environment.
It is true that each country holds in itself a distinct and particular environment, but we believe that as Europeans we can find some common training needs to address our future course. Continue reading
Vytautas Magnus University (e)Vet2edu team is proceeding with interviews with practitioners of e-learning. It is very interesting to work on this activity and we feel that a lot of good ideas are coming to our report. The interviewers are very positive on e-learning and our project. They are really waiting for the new e-learning course and there is no doubt for the need of such course in VET sector.
In order to understand the national context of Vocational and Educational Training, Cesie involved educators from the North and South of Italy, who have been interviewed about their previous experience and good practices in the field of e-learning.
This information are very important in this first part of the project: research and need analysis, in order to reach the aims fixed.
Sielsian region in the south of Poland is traditionally related to heavy industry: steel factories and mines are part and parcel of the environment. And they are also embedded in the educational landscape – schools and vocational training centres from the region train the specialists and workers for that particular industry branch.
The interview with vocational school teachers from that region using ICT in their teaching practice was really insightful. Blended learning that has been implemented on a large scale this September in the school is an excellent example of a purposeful use of ICT. However, the need for more collaborative, more interactive and engaging e-learning has been recognised and so perhaps apart from getting great information we can also recruit some trainers for our e-course as well.
We visited Secondary School of Economics in Maribor, where we met Mrs Fondak who was willing to answer our questions. Our aim was to gather experience and good practice of teachers in VET e-learning. This information will be used in adopting the e-course that was created for the Polish teachers.
