SCHOOL BREAK

PDFPrintE-mail

Written by SuperAdministrator Wednesday, 02 May 2018 15:17

School Break (SB) aims to explore the possibilities of school students learning through playing and designing escape room game type educational experiences. The title 'School Break' thus plays with the two meanings of 'break', i.e. escape and recreation/play.
Escape rooms are a relatively new entertainment form in which small groups of players work together over a set time (usually an hour) to solve puzzles and escape a real life locked room. There is increasing interest in their pedagogic use as they provide an authentic, motivating activating context for problem-solving, support small group collaboration, and let participants learn through exploration and experimentation. As well as supporting the development of cross-curricular skills – such as problem-solving, teamwork, and lateral thinking, which are also the focus of different EU education policies (cf. e.g. "Key Competences for Lifelong learning" or "Improving Competences for the 21st Century") - escape rooms can also be designed to meet specific curriculum goals.
This project makes the assumptions that collaborative problem-solving and design supports teamwork, communication skills, and creativity, while the playful and open-ended nature of the task, in a safe space supports measured risk-taking, creativity and innovation.
We hypothesise that playing and designing escape rooms will achieve three objectives: 1) increased student engagement; 2) learning discipline-specific knowledge; and 3) developing connected cross-curricula skills, in particular problem-solving, teamwork, and creativity.

Age management is a new competence for managers and supervisors in all companies and work organizations, where the demographic change is influencing. Also in private and public sector organizations are forced to adjust their functions for all generations. The most urgent need of age management is in companies where heavy physical and/or mental load is present.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
The main objective of the project is to help the process of adaptation to the rising requirements of the labor market by providing the quality guidance tool for companies (age management advisors or in-company trainers) and VET providers (teachers and trainers).
The main project objective will be fulfilled by the following partial objectives:
- to create a professional network in the problem area and contribute to it;
- to create and provide a high quality age management guidance tool (in a form of a web-page) - as described further in the two distinct intellectual outputs sections;
- to involve age management trainers (teachers/trainers from VET providers) into the training activities;
- to spread the results of the project within the professional networks of the partners.
NEEDS AND TARGET GROUPS ADDRESSED  BY THE PROJECT
Age management is a commitment to ensure that the human resources (whom the employers work with) would be capable of work not only today, but also in some 40 years from now.

MMBH Memory Methods Bright Horizons

PDFPrintE-mail

Written by SuperAdministrator Wednesday, 02 May 2018 15:17

"Research suggests we remember things better and retain them longer when we associate meaning to them using semantic encoding"

Memory Methods involve more than just training. The use of mnemonics (the study and development of systems for improving and assisting the memory) is an ancient art, craft and science practiced around the world. People have been training their memory for thousands of years.

How Memory Works. Memory works by making links between information, fitting facts into mental structures and frameworks. The more you are actively remembering, the more facts and frameworks you hold, the more additional facts and ideas will slot easily into long term memory.

Why Memory Doesn't Work! Memory getting apparently worse is that outside academia information tends not to be as clearly structured as it is in education. Where information drifts in as isolated facts, it will normally be forgotten simply because it is not actively fitted into a mnemonic. Memory, in most people does get worse with age, but only because it is allowed to. By keeping your imagination working, your memory can get better and better as you get older. MMGH Partners will work on and analyse good or bad case studies to question the reasons for success and failure. In addition, partners will take lessons for possible effective applications of the mechanisms underlying them.

Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help students Learn Resources to make memorizing key facts more manageable for students with special needs.

EMWOSE Empowering Women from ethnic minorities through Social Enterprise

PDFPrintE-mail

Written by SuperAdministrator Wednesday, 02 May 2018 15:17

EMWOSE (Empowering Women from ethnic minorities through Social Enterprise) project replies to the following needs:

1)women from ethnic minorities need to be aware of the successful women entrepreneurs as role examples to increase their self-confidence;

2) trainers, social workers and relevant parties need innovative and adapted methodologies to transfer entrepreneurship skills to women from ethnic minorities taking into consideration the cultural barriers;

3) women from ethnic minorities and trainers/social workers/business advisors need to have access to online open educational resources in order to empower themselves according to their needs and their interests.

Considering these needs, the project aims at increasing the employment of women from ethnic minorities providing them the knowledge, practical skills and counseling necessary for engaging the social enterprise world. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, the project’s consortium will deeply take into consideration the barriers that disadvantaged women face: current working conditions, business management skills gaps, lack of adequate mentorship, psychological and cultural obstacles. Therefore the main target groups of the project are: firstly, women from ethnic minorities interested in SE and secondly the trainers, social workers and business advisors that can support them.

Gender equality and economic integration of ethnic minorities are transversal and cross-borders challenges identified as priorities by the public authorities of all participating countries. Subsequently, in order to efficiently and effectively adress these complexes issues, the actions in the field should be carried out through a multi-disciplinary and comparative approach via transnational collaborative projects.

WISED Women in Social Enterprise Development

PDFPrintE-mail

Written by SuperAdministrator Wednesday, 02 May 2018 15:10

Women constitute half of the world population, they are not represented in labour market at the same rate. WISED will focus over the next 2 years to developing social awareness that can foster social innovation. One of the most important aspects of social development is diversity. So, women as a group bring a critical dimension to increase the potential for innovation.

Women have a talent for thinking long term: Women are probably very wired to think in a long term way and that helps to build a protective world, a world that connects and cares, and weaves resources for good and for the future. It doesn't mean that men don't/can't do it, they just have a more linear way of delivering. We need both systems to work well.

DESEM project

Written by SuperAdministrator Wednesday, 02 May 2018 15:10

www.desemproject.eu/

The DESEM project aims to develop a sexual education model/methodology for mentally disabled individuals. Each activity that constitutes the project content will provide coordinated work of educators/guidance specialists and disabled families, which are the main actors in sexuality education.

Disabled individuals are at the forefront of disadvantaged groups facing many difficulties in social, business, educational life. However, sexual education is one of the most important problems that are overlooked from the most basic problems of disabled people. The concept of sexuality that individuals who are in the process of healthy development due to external factors such as various prejudices and socio-cultural values, learn outside the educational environment in an unofficial way becomes a much more difficult subject when it comes to disabled individuals. However, there is a need for sexuality education that includes specific learning/teaching methods and techniques appropriate to their learning competence so that disabled people can positively behave in the social integration process, protect themselves from possible sexual violence and health risks, and find the sexual identity of disabled people. Therefore, Persons who will play a key role in education should adopt the complementary role of each other, rather than seeing the responsibilities of parents, and school partnerships on sexuality education, and be creating alternatives to each other.
