The adults without basic digital skills are many, are less likely to manage their finances, access to government services and cheaper products than the more likely to suffer isolation, have lower incomes, be deprived of the right to vote and have children who do not attend school. In addition, the EU is estimated that 90% of all jobs in the future work will take at least basic digital skills, which means that Europe could be faced with a gap of digital skills among European adults. It is therefore more important than ever that adult educators develop their digital and pedagogical skills. The project was created for this reason, that provide adult educators/trainers a comprehensive professional development program to enhance their digital skills. In this regard, the specific objectives of the project are:
- Reflecting the role of educators of adults in relation to digital approaches;
- Enable adult educators to take full advantage of all the digital and educational potential of ICT tools to provide a basic education;
- Increasing knowledge of adult educators on the use of different digital tools making it clear what kind of skills are needed in different contexts;
- Offer educators of adults adequate training opportunities to further develop their knowledge, their abilities and skills;
- Enhancing mutual learning and sharing of best practices;
- Compose a series of educational materials such as open educational resources (OER);
- Create an online platform that will contain all the results of the projects and that allows educators to quickly and easily use all materials produced during the project.
The direct target group of the project will be the educators of adults involved in learning who will update their e-skills and the use of technology, while the indirect target group are adult students, they will benefit from the educators themselves through learning offer for high quality adult.
