Our colleague Besart will be representing Center for Intercultural Dialogue as the project coordinator of the project Virtual Mobilities for All.
“Virtual Mobilities for All” is a KA2 innovation project with a period of 30 months and gathers 6 partners from North Macedonia, Greece, Ireland, Spain, France and Germany, where Pädagogische Hochschule Freiburg is the project coordinator.
But what is referred as “Virtual Mobilities”? To give you a better understanding of the project, at first it should be good to understand the definition of “Virtual Mobilities”.
“Virtual Mobilities” can be defined as: The use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to obtain the same benefits as one would have with physical mobility but without the need to travel.
In this project, people with disabilities are our target group and project is foreseen to have the following 5 outcomes:
- To map the skills and competences required for someone to participate into virtual mobilities activities.
- A Toolkit for Virtual Mobilities (Tools, Software, Hardware, Methodologies and Techniques)
- A self-assessment tools to create a learner’s path
- A flexible and modular MOOC (Massive Open Online Course)
- Pilot testing & reporting of the platform for people with disabilities
Intellectual Output 1 has begun and we already started the literature review, desk research and best practice analysis in our country.
So far, we had the chance to interview 2 experts and 7 young adults with disabilities.
More to come in the upcoming days.
