The International Projects area is divided into representative sub-categories of the multimedia courses created by Conform Scarl and Prism Consulting Srl to support the various projects.


FABULA CPLUS

The project, starting from the Good Practice created by the “FABU.LA– Financial And Business Learning Activities Game” KA2 Strategic Partnerships for Schools project, code 2015-1-IT02-KA201-015397, which exploited the edutainment logic, i.e. educating while having fun, to involve, motivate and enthuse Primary School children as regards entrepreneurship and financial literacy, expands its scope and range of action, experimenting with innovative forms of interactive, gamified and laboratory teaching to develop in the students of classes IV and V (9-11 years of age) of Primary Schools in Italy, Spain and Greece a consciousness, knowledge and ability to adopt behaviours oriented to the circular economy, experimenting and, at the same time, producing new creative and inventive ideas for an early entrepreneurial vision in the field of re-use and recycling of resources and materials.

The project strategy described falls within the objectives of Agenda 2030, which poses an epochal challenge: “to transmit to all students the knowledge and skills necessary to promote sustainable development” by re-orienting the traditional way of governing, producing and consuming, but also that of educating and to “teaching”. On the other hand, sustainable development cannot be built without a cultural change that must start from education systems, at all levels, and whose urgency and improcrastinability is now evident to everyone.

Objectives

1. the creation of Open Educational Resources in the form of virtual tours consisting of 360° images, to allow students to make an immersive and interactive visit in some locations that symbolize their daily lives (home, park, school, etc.) to accompany them to an early cultural leap to face the challenge of the circular model with full awareness, moving from the concept of disvalue inherent to waste to that of value, and then to learn the transformation process of each single material they will encounter along the virtual path.

In support of the OER we will also produce:

– a Teachers’ handbook containing the guidelines useful for carrying out activities in the classroom in the best possible way, providing teachers with adequate technical and didactic support to guide students in the use of virtual tours

– a Student’s Handbook which will be an easy-to-read booklet to allow young students to learn about the learning path in all its phases, in order to be guided in the use of both the various stages of the virtual tour

2. the conception and creation of the CIRCLE Game: Circular Learning Evaluation Game to hone the target skills and evaluate the achievement of the Learning outcomes corresponding to the training objectives programmed by the virtual tours in a playful-didactic learning context.

3. the design of the methodological manual of the Circular Creativity Labs for Entrepreneurship – CiCLE to allow teachers to conduct educational workshops aimed at developing the creativity, inventiveness and entrepreneurship of young students to give waste a “second life”, transforming it into something artistically and entrepreneurially new.

4. the methodological alignment of a pool of partnership teachers through a transnational mobility on the “CiCLE” model to hold the Circular Creativity Labs for Entrepreneurship and facilitate discussion, individual and group work, to enable young learners to apply the knowledge they have learned and translate it into “Re-CiCLE” ideas.

5. Testing by the students of the partner schools involved, with the support of the teaching staff, of the OER, of further in-depth materials, of the handbooks and of the CIRCLE Game.

EQ-WOOD

The EQ-WOOD project aims to contribute to the development of innovation capacity and competitiveness of the European wood and furniture industry, by designing and providing the curriculum of a new vocational profile, the Innovation Advisor. The Innovation Advisor will develop skills to manage innovation by combining green, digital and marketing skills. The project is based on a comprehensive analysis of the skills requirements already conducted by other European sectoral projects (FUNES, WOODUAL, IM-FUTURE).

The Innovation Advisor curriculum will be offered both as a Full Qualification, aimed primarily at young people, and as a set of independent learning modules aimed at the continuing professional development of workers. EQ-WOOD exploits the innovative practices of Technical and Vocational Training through a combination of classroom learning and e-learning in an international context.

The proposed qualification is coherent with the EU instruments for mobility and transparency (EQF, EQAVET, ECVET), and validation and recognition are a crucial part of the project.

The entire training offer is planned to be accredited, validated, presented and, if possible, transferred to the European Vocational and Educational Training systems. Furthermore, the project supports the development of a European Network for sectoral qualification and training in the wood and furniture industry, which will have the mission to design and provide new training courses and to update the sectoral qualifications most frequently subject to change, due to the evolution of technology and the market.

The project sees the participation of the most important associations of the wood and furniture industry, the European network of support centres for innovation in the sector and Vocational and Education Training Bodies.
