MOSEP addresses the problem of early school leavers at the stage at which young learners are in danger of dropping out of the formal education system, in adolescence.
The study examines ways to promote e-portfolios as a way of combating the problem of early school leavers and provides information about the qualifications and skills required by teachers, trainers and vocational counsellors.
Young learners, between the age of 14 and 16, find themselves at transition points in their lives at which they have to choose between going into upper secondary education or entering vocational training. It is a time when they have to make decisions and need to be supported in making the best choices for their future careers. Adolescent research suggests that students at the transitional stage of development between childhood and adulthood need specific forms of learning support (Bandura, 2006; Pajares et al., 2006). This is the case especially for developing personal skills, such as goal setting and accomplishment, self-organisation and self-confidence, and for developing a vision of professional life.
The MOSEP project proposes the innovative e-learning concept of ‘e-portfolio’ as a powerful instrument in this development process, because this pedagogical approach is fundamentally a learner-centred model. It allows a greater degree of personalisation in learning and motivates and empowers students to acquire the self-organisational skills needed to succeed in today’s knowledge-driven economy and to become self-confident and competent citizens of the 21st century.
