The digital revolution is building demand for digital skills and competences, thus requiring investment in infrastructure, digital resources and tools. Formal and Non-Formal Learning providers should reap the benefits of new ICT developments and adopt innovative and active pedagogies to equip young people with essential skills for life.
Emphasys Centre participated in the kick-off meeting of the Erasmus+ KA2 Youth project titled: “CONNECTEDLEARNING@YW: Promoting Quality Digital Youth Work through the creation-mapping of Connected Learning Routes in Europe: An innovative way to reach out to marginalized young people”.
This project is in line with the European Union’s priorities and aims to promote quality youth work, through the development of a European-wide tool which maps learning opportunities, to support young people who seek education to improve their employability.
The main aims and outputs of the project were discussed on the 15th and the 16th of May in Ulster, United Kingdom, where the meeting took place.
Heartfelt thanks to the coordinator and hosting organization of this project, the Ulster University (UK), as well as to the partners who are collaborating to see this project come to life, European Digital Learning Network (IT), CGE Culture Goes Europe – Soziokulturelle Initiative Erfurt e.V. (DE), Association “Euni Partners” (BG), ВУДУТЕК ООД (BG), and Hälsinglands Utbildningsförbund (SE).
