Name of the project
Tools to Fly
Duration of the project
24 months: 1.08. 2013 – 31.07.2015
TOOLS TO FLY intends to explore end evaluate the impact of the use of digital tools and the Internet in the empowerment of a variety of categories of learners at risk of digital marginalisation, then drawing out implications of findings in terms of guidelines for trainers involved in formal and informal education, and generating a collection of case studies and best practices, assembled on an online resource center.
The Partnership intends to address this issues by:
a) Exploring the way digital tools can be used to empower people, in a personal and professional perspective, and as citizens and consumers;
b) Exploring new approaches and methodologies to promote digital inclusion through the identification of individual motivations and needs, followed by effective steps to improve technical abilities;
c) Drawing out implications of findings in terms of guidelines for trainers involved; d) Creating an online resource center hosting a collection of case studies and best practices.
In order to achieve such objectives, the approach considered by the Partnership primarily involves mapping digital literacy practices, programs and methodologies developed through the use of ICT, as well as tools involved in such practices, supporting various groups of persons at risk of digital marginalisation. Partners then test a series of such tools (through workshops, courses or any other type of non-formal or informal educational activities), each with their respective target group, present to each other and compare testing results, and ultimately collate guidelines for trainers involved in formal and informal education, and a collection of case studies and best practices.
