02 SES 09 A, Education and Transition: Enabling of Young Unemployed People
Youth unemployment as well as the school-to-work transition challenge European countries. The research project "A European Concept to Visualize and Reflect One's Vocational Biography Using Digital Media - Show Your Own Gold (Acronym)", funded under the European Commission's ERASMUS+ Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships (2014-2017) aims to develop a European concept for consultancy, including course design and its' application, in order to enable young, unemployed people to reflect and display their vocational and educational biography by creating media. The project intends to encourage self-awareness of young people, last not least fostering competencies for approaching the labour market. This is realized by creating meaningful media in the context of a digital learning narrative, linked to an environment to activate learning in processes of creation, using diverse media to visualize informally and formally acquired skills. The research looks at curriculum development, appropriate media as well as the application in the context of practice based workshops with young participants.
In the framework of the project, a digital learning narrative is developed, based on a curriculum to facilitate the young reflecting about their learning and design processes as well as on their individual vocational perspectives is developed. Target group are young unemployed participants in the wide field of pre-vocational education and training, vocational preparation courses, projects and measures in different European countries.
The symposium discusses the research undertaken from 3 perspectives, such as the theoretical frameworks, the VET policies and labour market interactions as well as educational practice.
The idea of activating learners to support them visually reflecting their education and training undertaken in the past, was introduced as opposed to the common practice of an information overkill the youngsters and students in pre VET are often confronted with.
In the project, a curriculum is developed, tested and evaluated.
The symposium intends to present the research undertaken in the 4 participating countries. The presenters are the following:
