The objectives of the project are to: - Promote creative and critical thinking through the development of alternative pedagogical resources using digital breakouts based on constructivist learning theory - Encourage the development of creative and critical thinking skills in VET environments where non- formal and informal learning can flourish - Support front-line VET tutors to harness the potential of mobile learning environments to build high-value skill sets within their marginalised target groups - Foster an entrepreneurial spirit among young Europeans ensuring that they have the necessary skills to research, select, analyse, organise and present information
To achieve these objectives the following intellectual outputs will be developed:
IO1: XCAPE Digital Breakout Compendium of Resources – this will comprise the learning content for the proposed digital breakout resources at introductory and advanced levels to develop the key components of creative and critical thinking.
IO2: In-service Training Programme – this will provide the essential continuous professional development support to VET tutors to enable them harness the full potential of these new dynamic learning resources
IO3: XCAPE Online Platform – a bespoke, fully mobile, collaborative online learning environment that provides access to all the digital breakout resources
