Addressing the digital transformation in adult migrant education
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Flipped Digital Teachers is a 20 months Project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, which aims to support teachers and trainers in adult education and improve online education through Flipped Methodology.
Flipped Digital Teachers project aims to create an innovative methodological teaching approach for designing learning programs in adult migrant education, based on the Flipped Methodology.
The main goal of the project is to redefine the role of the trainers/teachers of the vulnerable collectives. The project is focused on giving a solution to the challenges that trainers of vulnerable groups face, such as social exclusion, learning and engagement.
The project aims to answer comprehensively to the new educational needs arising as a result of the pandemic, through the application of the Flipped Learning methodological approach, and appropriate use of digital tools that allows reinforcement of communication, collaborative learning and emotional engagement of students.
Project objective is to develop a digital Toolkit based on the methodological framework based of Flipped Learning, and train the first generation of Flipped Digital Teachers.
The Flipped Digital Teachers project will design and develop a digital open educational resource (Flipped Digital Toolkit), making it possible for teachers and trainers in adult education to implement Flipped Methodology into their online and offline classrooms.
Flipped Toolkit will train teachers on how to use and adapt Flipped Learning Methodology in a digital setting, to be able to plan, design and deliver training programmes in adult migrant education. It will also present a variety of digital tools, templates and activities to use.
The Toolkit will consist of interactive Modules, videos and excercises for training and acquiring new skills, plan lessons and activities, assess and evaluate the classroom. The trainers will learn to design educational experiences that allow students to assess themselves and improve their learning process.
Flipped Digital Toolkit includes 10 Video Training Pills, showing how to use mobile resources and social networks, to organize training sessions and online training delivery.
Flipped Digital Toolkit also includes an Interactive Catalogue of Best Practices, to show a successful application of Flipped Methodology in adult migrant education. The Catalogue of Best Practices will showcase problems and solutions that can be transferred and used by trainers in their everyday teaching.
The Flipped Toolkit will be available in English, Swedish, Greek, Spanish and Polish, available online as an open educational resource and optimal to be used in adult educational environment.
The final version of the Flipped Digital Teachers Toolkit will be available in September 2023.
