In autumnal Florence, the project partners of the DIGISCHOOL project met on 19.10.2023 for a final meeting. The last steps in this project were discussed, but mainly it was about a review and evaluation of the things that have been worked on together since January 2022.
These include case studies on the use of digital tools in vocational school teaching, a very extensive collection of tools and platforms that can be used well, videos to present possible uses, and a digital platform that bundles all these results and offers teachers the opportunity to test and purposefully expand their knowledge in this area.
Finally, in a very creative brainstorming session, we collected ideas for a possible follow-up project.
Our new Erasmus+ project Ready4Crisis started with a 2-day kick-off meeting in Schwerin, Germany. 8 partners – project managers, educational institutions and crisis management institutions – from Germany, Czech Republic, Greece and Poland have joined together in a consortium to actively contribute to the innovation of vocational education in the field of crisis management and monitoring.
There is an urgent shortage of secondary level educational resources in the field of crisis management and crisis monitoring due to emerging crises, hazards and natural disasters resulting from current climate change and societal changes. Furthermore, there is a great need for further training of vocational schoolteachers and instructors in the study/learning subjects of fire safety, fire safety management, fire prevention and similar subjects for emergency personnel, such as paramedics or security forces, as well as exchange and transfer of knowledge from abroad on this subject. With the project, we also want to help create new links between vocational training institutions and training organizations at the international level, with a focus on training in fire and rescue services, and thus develop a new basis for mutual cooperation. In the first step, we focus on the development of innovative teaching materials – inspirational pedagogical guidelines for vocational teachers to provide additional, adequate sources for training in crisis management and monitoring.
From November 14th to 16th, the partners of the Erasmus+ project growMET (growth mindset in educational triangles) met for their second workshop in Tirgu Mureş/Romania. In a very creative and demanding way, the project results we developed so far together were put to the test: how can they support the development and implementation of challenging digital school projects?
The second part of our workshop dealt with our final project result: a growth mindset model for digital teaching. In two groups, we identified different resistances towards changes in the educational sector and developed a strategy to overcome them. The project partners will present the final results of this demanding project early next year at conferences in Romania, Slovenia, Italy, Germany and the Basque Country/Spain.

As part of our EMPOWER project, all partners are now in the process of testing the created portfolio of instruments for self-assessment and guided assessment of migrant women’s entrepreneurial competencies. In Germany today, we held the second of four planned events with 13 migrant women and conducted two more of the instruments. It was a pleasure to see how motivated and enthusiastic the women were to participate in the activities, and they have so much professional potential to tap into. Thank you for the great experience and the interesting conversations and shared insights! It showed once again how important and valuable our work in this project is.
in initiative of our employees in our project Familienwerkstatt Schwerin is now finished. It symbolizes the cycle of life, a balanced, constant give and take. A great action, thank you!
“Family Workshop Schwerin” is a joint project of RegioVision GmbH (project coordination) and Anker Sozialarbeit gGmbH. The project is funded for the period from 01.03.2020 – 31.12.2022 in the model program “Akti(F) – Active for Families and their Children” – within the framework of the European Social Fund financed by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
From October 10 to 11, 2022, our second project meeting of the Erasmus+ project EMPOWER took place, this time in Rome. The meanwhile created draft of the assessment tool portfolio was discussed together again, the 15 competences of the EntreComp framework were highlighted and some of the tools were performed in a practical workshop by the project partners from the perspective of the target group. In the next step of the project work, the 11 tools of the portfolio will be put through their paces in a test phase with the target group.
On 13/14 October 2022, the project partners met in Giulianova/Italy, for the second project meeting in the Erasmus+ project DIGIBLEND. A good month after the workshop on game development in Stralsund, the first task was to test the three game designs for their suitability for assessing existing digital knowledge and skills. As a result of this round of testing, we decided together to make one game out of the three concepts. This way, we can put the best ideas to use.
The project consortium then looked at the upcoming testing phase, where all partners will test the game-based assessment approach with participants from our target group (adults 55+).
The results of this test phase will then feed into the second phase of the project, where we will develop a game-based hybrid learning format.
All project partners were very positively touched by the creative and cooperative atmosphere and are already looking forward to our next meeting and the cooperation until then.
