The current issue of WISO direkt addresses the specifics of the social economy compared to other economic sectors, which accordingly require a different form of digital transformation, and highlights opportunities as well as risks of digitalisation. In addition to the necessary investments in the technical infrastructure, a digital transformation also requires suitable innovation structures and cultures.
Successful completion of the EICON project, in which ITA together with European partners developed approaches to improve the inclusion capacity of vocational education and training (VET) institutions using information and communication technologies (ICT). The results are now available for free use in vocational education and training institutions.
The new digital initiative LearnIn offers teachers in 11 European and Central Asian countries high-quality, culturally relevant and collaborative learning opportunities, helping them to create meaningful learning experiences for their students.
Since a number of years, organisations active in vocational education and training (VET) throughout Europe try to become more inclusive, as to implement high quality education for all citizens. Recently, digitalisation gained relevance on their agenda as well, as it is considered the cornerstone of the digital transformation of EU business and society with the promise of an enormous growth potential for Europe. However, the digital transformation of VET proved itself to be far more complex than just to procure and use pieces of information and communication technology (ICT). Due to this complexity, VET organisations find themselves in the dilemma to either split their resources or drop one of their ambitious goals. The ERASMUS+ project EICON found a third option, discarding this “either-or” restriction, and identified synergies between inclusion and digitalisation in VET. First results to be used by VET organisations are now available.
