“Youth Workers 2.0” project will provide guidance and training for youth workers across Europe on how to use ICT tools and digital methods to better deliver basic skills youth education. This will be done through an integrative approach in collecting, sharing and disseminating innovative and inclusive teaching and learning practices using ICT tools and digital methods. In this regard, the specific objectives of the project for youth workers are:
-To reflect youth workers role in relation to digital approaches;
-To empower youth workers to fully exploit all the potentials of digital education and ICT tools to deliver basic skills education;
-To improve youth workers knowledge of usage of different digital tools making them understand what kind of skills are needed in different contexts;
-To provide youth workers with appropriate training opportunities for further developing their professional knowledge, skills and competences;
-To enhance mutual learning and share of good practices.
The direct target group of the project will be youth workers involved in youth learning who will upgrade their digital skills and use of technology, whereas the indirect target group is youth with fewer opportunities, who will benefit from digitally skilled youth workers through the provision of high quality youth learning.
The project has been funded by the Spanish National Agency (INJUVE) with the support from the European Commission through Erasmus Plus programme.
