Flipped Learning 3.0 for adults – in a cross-generational setting

Flipped Learning 3.0 for adults – in a cross-generational setting

This is the new challenge for  the EBI/EIE!

In the frame of the E4All (Education for All) project we will develop a special learning experience to convey flipped learning to educators inexperienced in this learning and training framework. The course will take place in Wiener Neustadt (in 2022).

Trainers from the staff of fife European Adult Training organizations will take part. The age distribution is fascinating: The participants will be between 20 and 65+ years old and thus offer the opportunity to plan, carry out and evaluate cross-generational learning within the framework of a flipped learning 3.0 setting.

Implementing Virtual Group Space

The frame conditions of the course force to implement both a virtual group space and an f2f group space for the final training. Here is the structure of the training:

Venue

The training will take place in Wiener Neustadt, Austria in Spring next year.

Participation

If you are interested to participate in this training please contact the organizer, Mr. Peter →  Mazohl. He can agree individual trainings or – if there are free places – even a participation in the training provided in the frame of the E4All project!

Introduction to Technology-Enabled Learning

Peter Mazohl, the head of the EBI, is an experienced trainer in Technology Enabled Learning. He started to teach using a learning platform in 2000, learned to implement and use a Moodle server, and finally worked successfully

Since 2013, his approach to teaching and training as based on flipped learning, since 2017 he enhanced the training approach to the Flipped Learning 3.0 Framework.”, offered by the Flipped Learning Global.

In 2021 he participated the MOOC “Technology-Enabled Learning” that had been offered by the Athabasca University (one of the biggest Distance Learning Universities) by interest – to “know what the others teach”. He passed the course and got certified.

The course content covered:

  1. Models of Technology-Enabled Learning
    • The Community of Inquiry
    • TPACK and TIM
    • On Teaching Presence
  2. Technology in Education
    • Integrating Technology in Education
    • Benefits of Technology in Education
  3. Open Educational Resources
    • Understanding Open Educational Resources (OER)
    • Types of Open Licenses
    • Finding OER
  4. Application of Technology
    • Practical Application of Technology
    • Getting Help with Technology
  5. Creating Technology-Enabled Learning

Peter Mazohl evaluated the course as an excellent opportunity for newbies to get the “big idea” and to create an overview of technology-enhanced learning. For experienced trainers it is an interesting possibility to stay informed and at the current level of technology-enhanced  teaching and training as well as to become in contact with trainers that are also interested in this topic.

 

 

European Cultural Heritage Database

European Cultural Heritage Database

The EBI/EIE is partner in the CICERO Erasmus+ Project 2018-1-SE01-KA204-039051. Currently the EBI/EIE team is develloping IO #2, the ECH Database.

This is the first screen shot of the webpage hosting the database of the “European Cultural Heritage Image Database”.

This  is an outcome of the CICERO project and will offer CC-4.0 licensed pictures of typical European Heritage. The images are free to use (except for commercial use) and will cover various topics representing the treasure of European Culture.

 

The European Commission describes European Cultural Heritage as

“… a rich and diverse mosaic of cultural and creative expressions, an inheritance from previous generations of Europeans and a legacy for those to come.

It includes natural, built and archaeological sites, museums, monuments, artworks, historic cities, literary, musical and audiovisual works, and the knowledge, practices and traditions of European citizens.

Cultural heritage enriches the individual lives of citizens, is a driving force for the cultural and creative sectors, and plays a role in creating and enhancing Europe’s social capital. It is also an important resource for economic growth, employment and social cohesion, offering the potential to revitalise urban and rural areas and promote sustainable tourism.”

Images for this database are taken from the upcoming photo contest that will take place in the frame of the project as well.

Education for All – Logo developped

The Greek partner in the project – Challedu – developped the logo for the project. This project aims to support the adult educators at designing, delivering and promoting more attractive and inclusive education for all generations of adult learners.

Partners in this project are Escuela Oficial de Idiomas Madrid-Villaverde, Spain; Challedu, Greece; ASSOCIAZIONE CULTURALE EDUVITA E.T.S.. Italy; Europäische Bildungsinitiative / European Initiative for Education, Austria and Ecological Future Education, Latvia. The project coordinator is Fundacja Alternatywnych Inicjatyw Edukacyjnych from Poland.

The European Initiative for Education (EBI/EIE) will impact with the specific knowledge about Flipped Learning 3.0. Here we will use results from the Flipped Adult Education project where the EBI/EIE is project coordinator.
