IO2 - Co-design of the prototype: DIGital Environment for LIteracy and Future Education
DIG4LIFE Serious Game was created in collaboration with upper secondary and VET teachers as primary beneficiaries, who could use it as a tool for assessing their students’ digital skills. Participatory design allowed the creation of an innovative product tailored to the real needs of students.
The main co-design goals were to support and update teacher’s digital skills, as defined in DigCompEdu, exploring and sharing pedagogical skills for educators. The national teams were invited to join a learning experience based on a problem-based, gamified learning strategy, which created meaningful scenarios for them and consequently for students.
IO3-IO4 - TESTING of the prototype in schools and in dual vocational training systems
Experimentation and implementation of the prototype on students (IO3) aim to develop a protocol to guide the experimentation process with Dig4Life. The protocol will be validated and used within the project and will constitute a tangible output that will accompany Dig4Life for teachers to perform further experimentations.
The DIG4LIFE methodology/tools will be tested also on the dual vocational training system (IO4) in Austria, during the internship phase of students, bridging secondary and tertiary institutions with the labour market in an empowered way.
DIG4LIFE using an open methodology of research, combines bottom-up and bottom-down approaches, taking at the same time the responsibility to propose policies and also to test and validate them through open discussion and checking with the real and virtual communities.
