Salesian partners in Europe have been working for almost 2 years on the DB WAVE Project (Don Bosco Web for a more Accessible VET in Europe) with the aim of improving the educational quality of Vocational Training in Europe, especially with regard to employability and social inclusion of the youngest.
During the last 2 months, all the partners have been attending online the different learning sessions that were planned in the project.
In our case, from Tech Don Bosco we have led the session on the “Developing the Digital Competence Framework”, which was held online on June 16th and 17th. This session was initially scheduled in Madrid in person, but due to COVID-19, it has had to be changed.
From Tech Don Bosco, it is the first time that we have organized a peer learning session, but we can say that the result has been successful, despite initial fears.
Tech Don Bosco, coordinates the VET centers of the Salesian province of Santiago el Mayor in Spain. In addition, to coordinate all the training of our VET centers, including plans to improve the digital competence of our teachers.
During peer learning the following topics were discussed:
Participants in the peer learning were limited to VET professionals from the project partners and experts in the Vocational Training sector.
We consider, given the conclusions, that all partners are faced with the same challenges in different work contexts and countries; and that much remains to be done in this area of Digital Competence with our teachers and students
