Progetto Europeo "Smart&Cooperative Skills”

The project proposal is based on the Communication from The Commission to European Parliament, The Council, The European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions “Tackling early school leaving: A key contribution to the Europe 2020 Agenda”. 

Learner pathways are at risk from fragmentation in a number of ways, leading to underachievement and possible drop-out from school. Transitions between levels and types of schools can be a moment where problems arise but also may reveal symptoms of other issues. Even access to education is also an issue for many young people. One in ten young Europeans leave education or training without having the skills and qualifications which are now considered necessary for a successful transition to the labour market and for active participation in today’s society, meaning they risk unemployment, social exclusion and poverty. There are many reasons why some young people give up education and training prematurely: personal or family problems, learning difficulties, or a fragile socio-economic situation. However, education system features and school climate are also important factors in the process of pupil engagement or disengagement. Pathways move through different ways of learning and being, and this can be positive for learners, if these pathways are flexible and parents and pupils can make informed choices. The recent global public health and social crisis caused by coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has had an enormous impact globally, including on the educational domain. Due to the closure of education facilities, billions of children and students had to continue their studies from home (United Nations Children’s Fund 2020). This produced many challenges, though these challenges differed depending on the societal context. In Europe, countries such as Spain and Italy, two of the most affected countries, were confronted with far-reaching consequences for their students. Prior to the current crisis, both countries had already struggled with problems such as early school leaving (ESL) and inequality gaps regarding access to education (European Statistical Office 2019). Though the numbers are still unclear, the potential to boost ESL numbers is significant. As Álvaro Ferrer (Advocacy Advisor of Education for Save the Children – Spain) has stated: ‘The health crisis can turn into an educational crisis’.

The project intends to develop and disseminate a pedagogical method, based on the theoretical foundation of the “Didactic Digital materials” focused on life skills, aiming to prevent and/or to face the early school leaving phenomenon. The project partnership, based on the respective roles and members’ responsibilities, will experiment territorial actions in Schools to encourage and thinning the dynamics of contact between the school system and youth population (in secondary education) in order to reduce the phenomenon of school drop-outs, with particular regard to the SEN, using ICT as a key enabler of innovation and change in Education and Training and for learning in general.

The expected results of the project are the following: 

  • explore learning practices that will help develop autonomy, commitment, creative action, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making;
  • improve knowledge of new technologies and interactive tools as an educational medium; 
  • increase digital literacy (knowledge + skills + tools) by users and partner members; 
  • stimulate forms of collaboration and communication virtual and face to face;
  • development of intervention models on the phenomenon of early school leaving to be replicated and exploited, focusing on inclusion;
  • stimulate students with Sen integration processes;
  • educate young people to use mobile devices and technological tools as a work and integration instruments; 
  • testing of non-formal education methodologies in order to combat early school leaving.

In the long term, potential long-term effects could be the following: 

  • a reduction of school dropouts and a consequent reduction of skills misalignments between education systems and the labor market;
  • students will get in touch with ICT and learn to use them wisely while carrying out the activities - learning will become more interesting and attractive for each student, and therefore will increase their interest and participation during the lesson; 
  • teachers will learn how to integrate new technologies into classrooms and improve their learning approaches, including through collaboration with teachers from different countries;
  • through the use of ICT in education, classrooms will become active organizations, as each student will be actively involved in lesson activities in various ways; 
  • each school will collect educational resources (platform with content, e.g. lesson plans, software, interactive games, video presentations, educational videos etc.) which may be available to all teachers in each school. These will be useful to improve the functioning of distance learning, useful for dealing with situations such as the pandemic we are currently experiencing.
