DigiCult

Cultural Heritage: a source of resilience and learning through digital education.

Project Description

DIGICULT offers an innovative e-learning pathway, based on digital tools and focused on cultural heritage, with the aim of developing disciplinary, key and life skills among two main target groups:

Young learners would increase their knowledge and enhance their performance with digital tools to become more resilient within the modern labour market and increase their European culture and environmental awareness, transforming that learning into useful skills for their personal development and professional careers.

Trainers/teachers will experience innovative teaching approaches to integrate digital delivery, foreign languages and best practice from partner countries. That will have a positive impact on the VET responsiveness to labour market needs for recovery and reconstruction in a post-pandemic context.

Target groups:

  • VET learners – young people, attending training courses (e.g. Sectors of cultural promotion, Hospitality and Tourism):
    1. a) having previous work/volunteering experience in the cultural heritage field;

and/or

    1. b) expressing a particular interest in digital issues and/or in cultural heritage;

and/or

    1. c) at risk of schooldropoutorhavelosttheirjobsintheculturalsectorduringthelockdown
