PROJECT ACTIVITIES

Common Methodology for teching/learning about computational and critical thinking

It is the organic collection of the results of the activity A1 – Development of a common methodology for an effective teach / learn on CCT to adults. It will consist of several sections: a) reference theories; b) decomposition of critical and computational thinking (CCT) into sub-skills; (c) measures and innovations in teaching and learning applicable to adults; d) approaches and tools for assessment of learning. The IO organizes internally the work of exchanging experiences and knowledge among the partners about adults education and the work of study and deepening focussed on the themes of the project.

Dissemination

Dissemination activities will be the Multiplier Event and the organization of events, conference, dissemination of researches, pares, documents and photos! The multiplier events wil be in Spain (Cunit), Poland (Olsztyn) and Italy (Rome). Follow our site and facebook page to get information about it and subscrive o the events

Digital Training Support Platform for adults teachers / learners

it consists of a digitally implemented framework in which both the functional features identified by the Common Model (O1) and the grid of learning-to-work support tools, that have been selected for adult audience from partners through the experience exchange work within the activity A1 – Development of a Common Methodology for effective teaching / learning on CCT to adults. The goal is to make the teacher possible by defining through a technological tool his own strategy for the classroom work and out of the classroom. At the same time, provide the learner with an environment where his / her skills and abilities are solicited by a “red thread” to ensure that all CCT’s sub-competences are trained. We will refer to this output with the DTSP (Digital Training Support Platform).

Case studies on applying CCT in different fields

It consists in 3 case studies implemented on the platform DTSP (O2) platform that provides a specific application theme with respect to which the teachers / researchers will define their narrative strategy, the problems to deal with, the resources available, the purpose to try, etc. all based on the DTSP provided for learning work. The 3 fields are: Eco-sustainability in SMEs Social Responsibility applied to service public/private companies Sustainable Development in Construction of Infrastructure

Online the paper on teaching CCT to adults by dr. Tatiana Iniguez & dr Ellen Boeren

The current Information Society requires new skills for personal, labor and social inclusion. Among the so-called 21st Century Skills (Care, Griffin & Wilson 2018) is Problem Solving in Technology Rich Environments (PS-TRE), a skill evaluated in PISA and PIAAC tests (OECD 2016). This skill, although currently receiving considerable attention in compulsory education, has not received the same level of thought in adult education. In this article, the presence of the PS-TRE skill among adults of working age (25-65 years) in Europe is analysed in relation to the factors that potentially affect a higher level of PS-TRE proficiency. This analysis is carried out using structural equations modelling, taking into account socio-personal and educational factors, as well as the use of different skills at work and in daily life. The results indicate that educational attainment and the use of different skills (reading, numerical skills, ICTrelated skills) at home and at work, as well as participation in non-formal education activities, decisively relate to a higher level of PS-TRE. This result is positively mediated through risk factors such as being older or being a woman. This study concludes that it is necessary to reinforce these skills, not only in children, but also in the adult population, in order to avoid social and labour exclusion

Multiplier Event - Spain (Cunit)

The multiplier event was held on 27th June, from 10.00 to 17.00, at CFA Dolors Paul (Cunit). The
mayor of Cunit opened the event. After that, Dr Tatiana Iñíguez, from Unizar, presented the project
and the methodology that was developed in O1. Later, two teachers from CFA Dolors Paul
presented the DTSP and the case study and two students who participated in the case study
shared their experience with the participants. Finally, there was room for questions and debate.
