DO-IT: Digital Competence to teach youth with migrant background
The project focuses on digital learning and education, addressing a wide spectrum of stakeholders that commonly deal with young people with a migrant background in the education system.
The starting point the project takes its grounding from is the overall scenario opening up with the Covid-19 pandemic effects on young people with a migrant background education, as they’ve been put in disadvantage when it comes to learning processes and education.
For this reason, the DO-IT project has pointed out the following objectives to achieve:
- identify, develop and disseminate best practices and innovative digital tools to provide teachers and trainers with skills to address the needs of youth with a migrant background;
- promote the recognition of digital competences and soft-skills acquired by young people with a migrant background through informal learning experiences;
- increase the capacity of 50 teachers and trainers on digital competences by providing them with a training on the 5 competences framed in the “Digital Competence Framework 2.0”;
- increase the capacity of 50 teachers and trainers to recognise the digital competences and soft-skills acquired by young people with a migrant background through informal learning experiences.
Over the duration of the project, the consortium will be putting together their expertise to create questionnaires to disseminate to their stakeholders (trainers, teachers, youth workers, researchers and members of associations for migrants), through digital dissemination tools and in-depth interviews.
The data collected will be then analysed and organised to write a digital publication containing the results of the research, to show and disseminate best practices in the field of education for young people with a migrant background.
