The virtual presentation will introduce the iEducate project and its various implementations. Furthermore it will give information about participation opportunities such as participation in Second Life presentations, joining the online community or taking an accredited e-learning course online.
The aim of this EU funded project is to provide vocational trainers with a range of e-Learning methods, associated technology skills and competences to prepare them for a rapidly changing workplace and to better connect them with a new generation of learners. Within this context the project website as well as the Second Life iEducate island function as platforms for the exchange of knowledge on e-Learning methods and contents for vocational teachers throughout Europe. The project offers free live training courses and workshops on e-Learning methodology and tools. Four thematic working groups (Culture & Heritage, Media & Communication, Self Employment & Entrepreneurship and Disability & ICT) provide resources for vocational trainers which can be downloaded from the project website. The vocational trainers are encouraged to adapt these resources to their needs and share their knowledge with colleagues throughout Europe to improve the vocational training and education in a common effort and with mutual benefits. Vocational trainers are welcome to use the Second Life iEducate island for virtual seminars and presentations. An accredited course on e-learning will be available soon and provide vocational teachers with a recognized qualification.
