Title RE.LOAD - Laboratories for REcovery and deepening of Learning Or Aimed at Deconstructive/transitional approaches to student's vocational guidance
Project Number LLP-LDV-TOI-09-IT-0458
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
NETWORKING FOR EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING SUCCESS. ORGANIZATIONAL MODELS, TOOLS AND METHODOLOGIES.
RELOAD is a proposal to transfer the GP "On the web for academic success and learning. Organizational models, tools and methodologies - Development of models LARSA (Workshops Deepening, Recovery and Development of the Learnings) for mixed networks of education and training" .
The project was characterized by a strong methodological component: it has produced models and tools for adaptation and transfer of GP so that they could closely integrate with the contexts of education and vocational training in partner countries. This experience could provide useful methodological tools for TOI in other situations and in different contexts
The main objective of the proposal was the construction of a transnational partnership able to adapt and transfer the project «NETWORKING FOR EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING SUCCESS. ORGANIZATIONAL MODELS, TOOLS AND METHODOLOGIES» through the comparison-exchange with the initiatives put in action in the different territorial contexts with the aim to improve and develop models and planning methodologies which have been studied during the development of the original project. In particular we have realized prototypes of laboratorial activities to be tested in different national and transnational contexts in order to improve the actions of accompaniment and vocational guidance for teenagers, from 14 to 18 years of age, put in action in the different contexts. The project was developed in three phases.The first phase of the project was dedicated to the comparative study analysis of the situations which characterize the different territorial contexts focusing the attention on the analysis of good practices related to: integration between school and employment/labour market; personalization of vocational training pathways in the phases of transition from school to active and working life as activated in the different contexts. The second phase was dedicated to the adaptation and implementation of products.
The adaptation that we have realized, even in function of the context enhancements derived from the transnational comparison, concern different typologies: 1) contents adaptation: trying, on one hand, to extend the exemplifications towards new disciplines and professional learning areas in comparison to those emerged from the first experimentation realized within the original Good practice, and, on the other hand, trying to create tools for key-competences learning; 2) linguistic adaptation; 3) methodological adaptation; 4) technological adaptation.
The third phase has transferred and has experimentated the final product within a certain number of Educational and Vocational Training institutions of the different Countries partners. The main objectives of the final product of the project concerned mainly the experimentation, to be carried out also with applicative experiences in the field of e-learning, deepening, recovery and development learning laboratories.
The RELOAD project aimed to adapt and to trasfer the Good Practice LARSA "NETWORKING FOR EDUCATIONAL AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING SUCCESS. ORGANIZATIONAL MODELS, TOOLS AND METHODOLOGIES", carried out in Italy, in Lombardy Region, between 2005 and 2007.
RELOAD was realized by a transnational partnership composed by: Italy, Belgium, Spain and CZECH REPUBLIC.
The main objective of the project was to realize prototypes of laboratorial activities to be tested in different national and transnational contexts in order to improve the actions of accompaniment and vocational guidance for teenagers, from 14 to 18 years of age, put in action in the different contexts.
