Marketing Text ILBES methodology is a new approach developed ad hoc for a learning circle in which the youth supports senior people in ICT usage and, in return, seniors mentor youths in their efforts to access to the labour market and to face the challenges of the adult life. The teaching and mentoring are mediated by ICT means and Blended Environments and Spaces. Two proven learning methodologies are combined for the first time: the Community Service Learning (CSL) methodology implemented by Fundación Esplai in its “Conecta Joven” network in Spain, and the Participatory and Appreciative Action and Reflection (PAAR) developed by Reflective Learning in the UK. The harmonization of these two methodologies was led by D-O-T with the collaboration of these two organizations, plus the University of Dortmund and L’apis.Both methodologies aim to empower individuals to improve themselves and the community where they live; however, each one proceeds in a different way.
The Learning process during TRANS e-Scouts project consisted of five modules:
M1 - Intergenerational Facilitators Training
M2 - Facilitators to Youngsters Training
M3 - Youngsters to Seniors ICT Training
M4 - Facilitators to Seniors Training
M5 - Seniors to Youngsters Mentoring
Along the 5 modules there are three sets of inter-related ideas that reveal the project’s aims. Those ideas are as follows and are the soul of both projects:
(1) Empowerment, Social Inclusion and Participation
(2) ICT Learning, Internet and Community Service
(3) Employability, Personal Development and e-Inclusion
