The second TPM took place online because of the Covid-19-pandemic. The consortium discussed the following topics:
- Feedback regarding the Progress Report: The national agency has confirmed the update of the project’s strategy to focus mainly on adult learning for seniors and to support adult learning teachers working with seniors in the current situation, which makes it difficult to implement face-to-face courses. Based on this, the consortium agreed on the following main objectives: Support for adult education teachers working with seniors in implementing virtual formats or semi-virtual formats into their courses; Promoting social integration of participants through collaborative activities and Promoting digital skills of participants
- The IO2-Educational-Pack: The consortium agreed on the general structures and topics of the modules to be produced. The topics will be Hardware and Basic Functions; Basic Software; Communication and Collaboration; Online payments / Purchases and Online Entrepreneurship; Digital Citizenship; Smartphones / Android Tablets.
- Dissemination Activities: The Consortium agreed on focussing the dissemination activities on the website and the facebook-page. The updated dissemination plan schedules which partner is responsible for social media activity at which time.
The partnership strongly collaborated to meet the project objectives which refers to the development of aTOOL KIT with effective outreach strategies adopted in order to improve adult participation, promote the acquisition of key competences (literacy, financial, numeracy and digital competences) and enhance the quality of the opportunities provided by adult educators. The KIT will be accompanied with an interactive platform whereas innovative methods will be pilot-tested to encourage, support and motivate potential participants. The ultimate beneficiaries of this project are adults with a focus on long-term unemployed, seniors, adults with low digital skills, migrants with limited literacy skills and adults with health-related problems.
The consortium envisages that through strong collaboration, communication and teamwork, the project will be effectively implemented and the project objectives will be met. The kick off meeting involved a discussion and an in-depth analysis on the implementation of the intellectual outputs to be produced and the shared-responsibilities among the partners in regards to project implementation, quality control and dissemination of the project results.
