The WrITe Skills

Lack of literacy, numeracy and language skills has been shown to be a key factor contributing to economic disadvantage, high levels of unemployment and social exclusion across EU member states.

A Leonardo da Vinci project called The WrITe Skills was initiated by FIT to help address these issues through the development of dynamic, person-centred and IT / web based multi-lingual learning tools.

In collaboration with 5 European partners FIT has developed a range of media, learning resources and courseware called My IT!, that gives learners an opportunity to develop their literacy, language and numeracy skills in a very practical manner e.g. filling in an online job application.

My IT! is made up of seventeen exercises. Each exercise in My IT! is designed as an interactive web-based environment through which the learner gains competency by doing basic ICT tasks and accessing internet based services. The exercises are designed at three different levels depending on the learners’ skills and experience; Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced. A selected number of exercises have interactive narration to assist the development of literacy, numeracy and language skills.

The target learners are those identified as most in need of intervention by the OECD in the final Report on the International Adult Literacy Survey 2000 namely young people “hard to engage”, early school leavers, young men aged 15 – 25, people with literacy numeracy and language difficulties experiencing the digital divide and mature people over 45.

My IT! is designed at three different levels to enable tutors to select the most appropriate exercises for learners.
