Teaching coding and mobile devices in telecentres
Date du début: 1 oct. 2015, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Context/background: This project is based on the long-standing experience of the participating organisations in developing training courses for end users and training e-facilitators, as well as on the identified needs for developing training courses on coding and mobile devices in telecentres. These too topics are demanded by the end users, and are especially relevant for young jobseekers. E-facilitators (educational staff in telecentres) need to be prepared for teaching these courses. The partners are experienced in developing a comprehensive curriculum with 11 modules for capacity building of e-facilitators in two previous projects. Objectives: The overall objective of this project is to improve the delivery of key digital competences in telecentres. This objective is two-fold: on one hand, we want to develop the digital competences of unemployed youth through innovative introductory courses on coding and mobile devices. On the other – to enhance e-facilitators’ competences by training them how to deliver these courses. Number and profile of participants: Direct participants of the project will be 20 e-facilitators, who will participate in blended learning mobility including face-to-face training and online learning experience. They will be trained to teach coding and mobile devices according to the curricula for e-facilitators, which would be developed for this purpose. Additionally, 200 e-facilitators are expected to benefit from the online learning resources, which would be part of the curricula and will be available on the CODEMOB platform. 60 young job seekers will take part in the pilot trainings in four countries, led by the trained e-facilitators. Description of activities: The activities are related to the achievement of the main intellectual output: - Needs analysis and mapping of existing curricula for teaching coding and mobile devices; - Drafting of needs analysis report; - Developing curricula for end-users on each topic; - Developing curricula for e-facilitators on each topic; - Carrying out the face-to-face training course for e-facilitators; - Carrying out the online learning activities for e-facilitators; - Organising curricula validation workshop with other Telecentre Europe members; - Carrying out pilot trainings with end users; - Stock-taking, refining of the curricula and producing the final outputs. - Final even for valorisation and exploitation of the two courses. Methodology: CODEMOB will achieve its objectives by designing two new courses on coding and efficient use of mobile devices for telecentres. Each course will follow the same approach and will consist of two parts: 1. Training curriculum for end users in telecentres and 2. training curriculum for the e-facilitators to train them how to teach those courses in telecentres. Each course will be developed by two field partners – one will be in charge of the training curriculum for end users and the other will develop the training materials for e-facilitators. The 20 e-facilitators will be trained in both courses during a one-week face-to-face training and follow-up online training. The development of the curricula will be preceded by a needs analysis and followed by a validation workshop and piloting with end users. Both courses will be piloted with end users in all four participating countries (Belgium, Croatia, Spain and Hungary). Results and impact: The main expected results of the project are two training courses – on coding and on the use of mobile devices – and the benefits that come with them. The project will equip the four partner organisations with structured programmes for teaching coding and mobile devices, which will be added to their training offer. E-facilitators will increase their capacity for teaching coding and mobile devices and will exchange good practices with other e-faciltiators teaching those topics in telecentres. The project will increase the knowledge of the unemployed young people (the end users of the courses) on the two topics, equipping them with new skills, which would help them to find employment, and possibly motivate them to pursue an ICT career by giving them a “taste” of the numerous possibilities that ICT offers. Potential longer-term benefits: The long-term desired impact of the project on the European level is that telecentres are recognised as innovative trainings hubs, capable of catching up with the latest developments in digital economy and teaching digital skills as transversal skills in an accessible way to their specific target groups.
