Erasmus+ KA2 on Strategic partnerships for Adult Education has started. ALL
DIGITAL is the coordinator of the project
OPEN AE- Promote Open Source Technologies in non-formal Adult
Education. Open AE was
awarded through EPOS which is the National Agency for Erasmus + programme in
will address these key challenges and generate best practices based on these
needs. The twofold aim of OPEN AE are to: 1) Contribute to the development of
e-facilitators competences to deliver high quality and relevant digital skills
training to adults;
Contribute to the promotion of open source technologies and open education in
non-formal adult education
At the ALL DIGITAL Summit partner met briefly to start
planning actions for the first months of the project which are to develop a
curriculum and training scheme to develop a better understanding of the main e-facilitators’ training
needs in relation to the use of open source technologies and define the “state
of the art” in teaching open source technologies by mapping available training
offers and available OERs at country level. Four countries reports and a
European report will be developed in early 2019.

Open AE: Promote open source technologies in non-formal adult education
Open AE: Promote open source technologies in non-formal adult education is an Erasmus+ KA2 project awarded through EPOS – National Agency for Erasmus+ programme in Flanders.
Open AE has three priorities:
to promote access and learning through open educational resources (OER);
to promote Open Source (OS) technologies in the non-formal
educational sector to support the upskilling of adult educators and
to address adult trainers working in the non-formal educational sector to reinforce digital skills and competences.
Open AE will address key challenges and generate best practices based
on these needs identified by ALL DIGITAL members in developed
sustainable curricula for adult education, particularly with a focus to
upscale low-skills unemployed adults. OPEN-AE wants to support European
digital competence centres in becoming innovative training hubs.
The twofold aim of Open AE is to:
contribute to the development of e-facilitators competences to
deliver high quality and relevant digital skills training to adults;
contribute to the promotion of open source technologies and open education in non-formal adult education.
Expected results and outputs:
Develop a curriculum training scheme on open source technologies addressed to e-facilitators working in non-formal adult education, mapped on the DigCompEdu Framework (CSF will lead this work)
Create an online toolkit for e-facilitators in five
languages (EN, NL, FR, IT, ES) by adapting open educational resources
already available. It will serve as guidance for adult education
strategies, tools and approaches for developing digital skills training.
(led by Ynternet.org)
Develop a modular blended course of 60 hours in open source technologies and pilot
it with 40 e-facilitators from four countries to improve their
knowledge of open digital learning technology, tools, platforms and
using them (led by Colectic)
Produce guidelines for transferability and upscaling of project results and recommendations for non-formal education providers and policy makers (led by ALL DIGITAL)
