DigiSkills aims to bring together and further develop content, services, pedagogies and practices for lifelong learning in school/university/adult population, formulating specific scenarios of use of learning tools and platforms which will be tested with real users from eight countries (Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Greece, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK), and evaluated in terms of their impact, with a particular attention to institutional as well as pedagogical innovation and change.
This way, DigiSkills network aspires to address the necessity to develop an integrative approach in collecting and disseminating best practices that promote ICT enabled learning using innovative teaching and learning practices. To this end, a European network of all relevant actors (teachers and students in secondary education (SE), teachers and students in higher education (HE), parents, policy makers, adults returning to higher education, learners entering the workplace (AE) etc.) shall be formed and motivated through specific educational actions, contests, conferences and summer schools, to develop the competencies necessary in order to properly educate in digital competence and learning to learn skills and thus supporting the transition of Europe to a leading knowledge based economy. Overall the project team that has a network of experts from the education, pedagogy and qualitative research fields aims to design and implement a methodological approach that will contribute to a systematic assessment of the impact of the ICT enabled learning both in terms of learning outcomes and learning activities and to the delivery of a series of recommendations for possible future actions.
