Title On-Line Learning Modules For Waste treatment, Waste disposal and Waste recycling
Project Number 2011-1-SK1-LEO05-02882
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text Main objective of the project „On-Line Learning Modules For Waste treatment, Waste disposal and Waste recycling“ was to create on-line learning modules focused on waste treatment, waste disposal and recycling. We prepared a broad spectrum of on-line modules (study materials) for e-learning education in the field of waste processing.
Summary The project aimed at the preservation of natural resources and the environment, supported the implementation of advanced technologies for waste treatment, disposal and recycling through the creation of an on-line system of distance learning. This system enhanced the knowledge and skills of employees within various branches of industry, agriculture and public authorities, SME managers, VET students as well as unemployed and discriminated people with the intention of improving their possibilities in the labor market in the field of the most progressive technologies of waste treatment, disposal and recycling. The consortium consisted of 8 partners (Multimedia as innovation donor, 3 leading Central-European universities, 3 organizations active in vocational training and the Recycling fund as the body organizing waste treatment and recycling in Slovakia) from 5 countries. Consortium members provided good contact with professionals active in waste treatment and recycling as well as the necessary capacity and experience to carry out implementation and dissemination of the project results. Tangible impact of the project was to transfer didactical tools developed in projects ELEVATE, EDUET, RESNET and MENUET to On-Line Learning Modules For Waste treatment, disposal and recycling in the form of Moodle e-learning system and E-book. The Intangible outcome was the transition of training and education from classroom “Talk and Chalk” to independent Mobile E-Learning in the field waste treatment and recycling. The main outcome of the project WASTRE was to help solve problems for producers in the treatment, disposal or recycling of waste as a result of their production, either the waste generated in production or waste generated after the use of the products. The legal systems of EU member states was unified in this issue and it placed emphasis on the complexity of waste management in enterprises. Technologies where waste problems was not solved sufficiently was not permitted to operate. In this situation, entrepreneurs and managers were obliged to introduce the most effective and advanced technologies and equipment for waste treatment into their companies. It modified the role of education, skills and training in the field of waste treatment, disposal and recycling. Education and Training in this field could be considered for the publics good, an investment as important as physical investment. Many members of the target group live in regions located far from traditional educational centers. Classical methods of one way communication weren´t sufficient for them. E-learning is very flexible, it enables continual improvements, updating, upgrading of learning material, adaptations to different knowledge and levels of course participants, utilizing materials from the Internet and other information and communication technologies. E-learning contributes to combating all forms of discrimination.
The project was focused for study material preparation for On-Line Learning Modules For Waste treatment, Waste disposal and Waste recycling. This study materials are online available on project webpage to make it easier for target groups to use and for study.
The on-line application can be use also for testing and evaluation of acquired knowledges.
Water Supply; Sewerage, Waste Management and Remediation Activities
During the project was prepared the folloving study material:
Modul 1. Waste management procedure
Modul 2. EC Action Plans and Directives, Acts and Regulations relating to Solid Waste
Modul 3. Solid Waste treatment recycling technologies and equipment
Modul 4. Evaluation of alternatives of waste treatment recycling technologies and equipment
There study material are published in electronic form on project webpage www.wastre.eu, where after registration can the participants use it.
The part of project results are also handbooks for students and teachers with description how to use the e-learning system and study materials.
