Future Education and Training in Computing: How to support learning at anytime anywhere?
The project aims at the achievement of intelligent growth, and building a knowledge and innovation based computer society through raising the quality of computing education, introducing modern innovative technologies in education, sharing knowledge, discussing methodologies, promoting exchange of good practice between all parties.
In order to respond to:
- ET2020 - the consortium will develop a European Strategic Framework for Computing Education and Training 2020 (ESFCET 2020), which will form a solid, global strategic framework that leverages local and transnational competences to enhance Computing Education in Europe.
- European Qualification Framework - ETN FETCH will develop a European Evaluation Framework in Computing Education and Training 2020 (EEFCET 2020), which will evaluate the three factors: Knowledge, Skills and Competences gained from Computing Education and Training.
- The Tuning Methodology - the project will prepare recommendations for future Digital Curricula in Computing Education and Training 2020 (DCCET 2020).
- Introducing modern innovative technologies in education - new didactical theories and learning models for using social media in education will be developed.
