Grundtvig Partnership Project, 2013-2015
Educational systems in Europe are currently faced with the need to be adapted to significant socio-demographic and economical changes: ageing populations and increased migrant mobility. Therefore, an evergrowing challenge is how to build more sustainable models of education to increase key competencies of many adults, including migrants and older learners and encourage their participation in lifelong learning.
The main focus of the project is to increase adult literacy, foreign language skills and ICT competencies through the use of storytelling techniques and digital story making with an active involvement of learners steering this work and taking ownership for personal progression.
