GIVE – Guidance In Vocational Education for students in rural areas

Mar 28, 2012Tecnologie della comunicazione

GIVEThe idea of the project is to utilize modern methods used by social media for improvement of vocational knowledge. Due to rapid development of Web2.0 services, and the need to provide attractive and high quality learning content, a slow movement towards integration of learning systems and social media applications has arisen. Social media applications such as Twitter, blogs and Facebook are used more and more in our daily personal and professional lives. Educational institutions are becoming increasingly aware that such applications can be effectively integrated into their learning delivery systems but very few are actually using these applications to innovate their training systems or to offer more learner-centered services. Equipping VET professionals with skills allowing them to deliver knowledge with use of social media will provide attractive VET opportunities and encourage youth participation in learning process.
