OPEN AE (mini) kick off at ALL Digital Summit

A new 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 Flanders.

OPEN AE 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;

2. 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.

In addition to the coordinator ALL DIGITAL, YNTERNET.ORG (Switzerland), COLECTIC (Spain), Centro Studi Citta Di Foligno Associazione (Italy) and Maks vzw(Belgium), are in the partnership for the OPEN AE project.

The official OPEN AE kick off meeting will take plan in Brussels in December.
