Transforming progression and learning outcomes for youth at risk through ICTs, Web 2.0 and Mobile Learning

 

In all European countries, there is a group of “youth left behind”. While the characteristics of these young people differ from one country to another, they share the common fact of accumulating disadvantages. These are mainly young people who never entered a formal path of education, come from an immigrant background or live in remote neighbourhoods.

Their situation is changing into even more difficult while economic crisis hits Europe. Youth at Risk are now experiencing multiple barriers in accessing the labour market and are at a high risk of exclusion from the working society. In the same time there is growing evidence that innovative ICT, Web 2.0 and mobile tools can enhance the learning delivery for Young Learners and their engagement into mainstream education.

This project aims at developing new methods for the use of ICTs, Web 2.0 and Mobile Learning which mainstream education and training providers can adopt to support large numbers of Youth at Risk to improve their capacity to enter the labour market and to progress to further education.

The project will develop and pilot a model and innovative programmes which mainstream education and training providers can implement to transform engagement and learning outcomes for youth at risk. These tools will give guidance on what Web 2.0 and Mobile Learning technologies as well as different pedagogic approaches, work best in meeting the needs of Youth at Risk.
