A Context Specific Qualifications Framework/ Profile for the Numeracy Competence linked to the Active Citizenship ladder
According to the definition of ERF the mathematical competence refers to the necessary knowledge in mathematics which includes a sound knowledge of numbers, measures and structures, basic operations and basic mathematical presentations, an understanding of mathematical concepts, and an awareness of the questions to which mathematics can offer answers. It also involves, to different degrees, the ability and willingness to use mathematical modes of thought (logical and spatial thinking)(Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning ).
This output is a complete Qualifications Framework for the Numeracy Competence according to the EQF respecting the general guidelines as set in the ERF. The innovation of the Numeracy Competence Qualification Framework is that it focuses on a specific context and facets of the competence which are a prerequisite to access Initial Vocational training, the labour market and achieve AC.
A Context Specific Qualifications Framework / Profile for the Digital Competence linked to the Active Citizenship ladder
Digital competence requires a sound understanding and knowledge of the nature, role and opportunities of ICT in everyday contexts: in personal and social life as well as at work. This includes main computer applications, information storage and management, and an understanding of the opportunities and potential risks of the Internet and communication via electronic media (email, network tools) for work, leisure, information sharing and collaborative networking, learning and research. Skills needed include the ability to search, collect and process information and use it in a critical and systematic way, assessing relevance and distinguishing the real from the virtual while recognizing the links.
The innovation of the Digital Competence Qualification Framework is that it focuses on a specific context and facets of the competence which are a prerequisite to access Initial Vocational training, the labour market and achieve AC.
42 Experiential & Innovative Workshops for the Numeracy and Digital Competences
This output refers to the design and development of 42 experiential and innovative workshops and activities (which are later transformed in a Digital Form) for the achievement of the Learning Outcomes identified in the 2 Qualification Frameworks developed (O1, O2). Each workshop addresses one or more Learning Outcomes identified in the Numeracy and Digital Qualification Frameworks..
A Digital Assessment Tool for the Numeracy and Digital Competences
This output is an online digital assessment tool to assess the Numeracy and Digital Skills of the adult and identify the gaps (if any) in respect to his/her current stage on the Active Citizenship scale. Based on the results of this assessment the trainer will be able to choose the appropriate workshops for the required LOs that must be addressed so as to eliminate the gap.
IntoDIGITS: 42 Digital Tools in 5 Languages incorporated in a new IntoDIGITS online toolkit
This output is an Online Toolkit which includes the assessment Tool for the Numeracy and Digital Competence as well we 42 methodology guides/Workshops/activities for the development of these competencies.
Publications on good practices and outcomes of the project
The main objective of this output is to ensure the transfer of project results and good practices identified during the project to a wider audience .This publication serves both educational and promotional purposes. The publication includes a comprehensive description of the experience gained during the implementation of the project, as well as the main outputs and results of the project. It highlights best practices for the engagement of low-skilled adults in learning activities, methods for attracting the target group in engaging in a progressive learning path to improve their digital and numeric skills, tips for trainers using the IntoDIGITS toolkit and other practical information.
