Approximately 90% of the jobs nowadays require some level of digital skills, and some studies have pointed out that the low-skilled (low-qualified) working adults are the most vulnerable in the current labor market. That is why DIGITAL, an Erasmus+ project bringing together partners from Netherlands, Greece, Denmark, Germany, France, and Ireland; was born. The main goal of DIGITAL is to help this labor segment by enhancing the ability of educators who are working with them to use digital learning strategies and tools.

Today, LHF would like to announce that the first output of the project has been completed! We would like to thank our Dutch partners for sharing their experiences and knowledge about best practices during the output making process: Mr. Ashwin Brouwer from Friesland University, Mr. Kevin de Groot from Ons Kruispunt and Mr. Jan Douwes from Afûk.

This output is a digital publication called “Digital Good Practice Compendium”, aimed to use for teachers, trainers, and researchers in the field of digital Adult Education in Europe. The compendium encourages knowledge sharing and peer learning among Adult Education organizations and stakeholders by identifying and sharing leading innovative approaches in using digital teaching for adults, with a special focus on disadvantaged and marginalised adults and NEETs.

In the compendium, you will read about the experiences of adult educators from across Europe with their digital tools, explaining what works and what doesn’t in their daily practice working with adult learners. In almost every case study, there is a clickable button so you can click on and hear from them in the short video interviews.

If you have more time, check out this video (in Dutch) from Jan Douwes (Afûk) talking about what he thinks the future of digital education will be.
