Die Debatte um die Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) befasst sich viel intensiver mit den sozialen, institutionellen, technologischen und wirtschaftlichen Aspekten als mit dem Bedarf der Entwicklung neuer pädagogischer Ansätze, die konsistente Anleitungen für die Gestaltung dieses aufkommenden Bildungsszenarios bieten.
Ein neues Verständnis der Wissensproduktion und des Lernens stellt den Kern des Lerndesigns vor eine Herausforderung, indem es innovative und angemessene Ansätze für die Lehre und das Lernen fordert. Wir präsentieren eine Reihe von Lerndesignprinzipien, die von der Perspektive der Lerner ausgehen. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Befähigung von Lernern in Netzwerkumgebungen durch die Unterstützung des kritischen Denkens und der Zusammenarbeit, die Entwicklung kompetenzbasierter Ergebnisse, die Ermutigung zur gegenseitigen Unterstützung und Beurteilung durch soziale Bewertung, die Bereitstellung von Strategien und Werkzeugen zur Selbstregulierung und schließlich die Verwendung diverser Medien und IKT zur Schaffung und Veröffentlichung von Lernressourcen und Resultaten.
The overall objective of the study (SMART 2007/0030) was to provide analysis of the impacts of different policy options for the preparation of the Digital Agenda for Europe, one of the flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 strategy. The final report contains an individual assessment of several policy areas: next generation access deployment; net neutrality and digital rights; digital content; user empowerment and the role of the EU in the international ICT arena. The analysis included outcomes from existing studies, surveys, hearings and consultations.
The European Commission has established the e-Inclusion Awards to raise awareness, encourage participation and recognise excellence and good practice in using ICT and digital technology to tackle social and digital exclusion across Europe.
The scheme ran for the first time in 2008 (view the winners).
The 2012 eInclusion awards will underline the work done by intermediaries and encourage the dissemination of good training practices in the special award category "we are the champions". The other award category is "I am digitally driven" and will highlight the impact of digital skills on life prospects, with special focus on employability, re-skilling, visible improvement in socio economic situation of groups at risk of exclusion.
Participants are asked: "Show or tell me your personal story of digital empowerment: How did ICT make a difference for you? And how we can use that learning to better support digital champions around Europe?
Method of participation to the call will be submission of audiovisual material.
Key criteria for selection will be:
1) demonstrated positive impact of the initiatives presented on individuals' employability and wellbeing
2) creativity and quality of the material submitted in support of the entry. The story told should inspire and encourage other organisations and individuals to take part in e-inclusion initiatives
The winners will be announced towards the 2012 Digital Assembly, where the Commission's reports on the progress of the Digital Agenda for Europe.
No monetary prize will be given.
Winners will be selected by independent experts.
Selection criteria, conditions for participation and details on how to enter will be available shortly on this page and announced in the e-inclusion newsletter.
The Awards will be opened to public administrations, private sector, voluntary organisations and individuals - within the EU Member States, Candidate Countries and EEA countries.
The call will be open for a duration of six months.
Proposals aim to improve funding for the EU’s regions and focus more on high-impact growth and jobs programmes.
Economic development, productivity and employment opportunities differ widely across the EU.
About a third of the EU’s budget goes on reducing these disparities – helping its least developed regions benefit from the EU market.
Funding is given to programmes with aims such as developing the skills of local workforces, encouraging entrepreneurship, improving infrastructure and protecting the environment. Millions of Europeans have already benefited from targeted regional funds.
EU budget proposals for 2014 to 2020 allocate €376bn to such programmes. The Commission is also proposing a new approach to make this round of funding more effective in achieving the long-term aims of Europe 2020, the EU's growth and jobs strategy.
The proposals aim to concentrate funding on a smaller number of priorities – in line with these goals.
Each country would agree with the Commission on a partnership contract, setting priorities for investment and targets to be achieved.
Funding conditions would be introduced before aid is granted. Better monitoring would ensure programmes meet their agreed objectives.
Additional funding would be available for programmes that deliver the biggest contribution to growth and job creation.
Common rules would be introduced for the various funds targeting social development, rural areas, coastal areas, cooperation between border regions, fisheries, and less developed countries. Programmes would be able to combine support from some of these funds.
Applying for funds would be made simpler – to reduce administrative burdens, particularly for small companies, and cut costs for all concerned.
While all EU countries would benefit from the funding programmes, support would be concentrated on those with a gross domestic product below 75% of the EU average.
The proposals should come into effect in 2014, if they have been approved by national ministers (in the Council of the EU) and the European Parliament in 2012.
Regional representatives will discuss the new proposals from 10 to 13 October at the annual Open Days 2011 in Brussels.
The workshop noted that digital literacy and eInclusion is a journey: from awareness, through inclusion, engagement and ultimately to empowerment. Sustainable and scalable solutions are needed. There are diverse and various routes to eInclusion (different models, places, partnerships). On a policy side strong and clear argument becomes visible for Digital literacy for inclusive society and competitive economy.
