Digital transition and blended work methods

The last iBOX online training course was held this week - from 11 to 13 June 2024 - and focused on the digital transition and blended work methods. Facilitated by ALL Digital, the three modules discussed the benefits and challenges of digital transformation, the use of blended work methods in learning environments and the context of CSOs and NGOs and digital inclusion. 

Discussing digital transformation is an inevitability in today’s world, which is impacting all sectors, including the education and training sectors, educational and training providers, CSOs and NGOs and all organisations which gravitate around the sector. The transition is ongoing, however, it is important to reflect on the impact of the digital space and how it affects social inclusion. 

With the participation of 25 people from different sectors and nationalities, the course started with an introduction to the digital transition, benefits and challenges of the digital space and a debate on the role of technology both in the learning environment and different work settings. Blended work methods were presented and tools were shared with participants. Participants also had the opportunity to participate and share their contributions using different digital collaborative tools.

DigComp, the most well-known and widely used digital competence framework at the European and international level, provides a common language to identify and describe the key aspects of digital competence. However, as digital technologies evolve, our understanding and definition of inclusion must also evolve, and although advances have been made to address the digital divide, it remains ever-present within our societies. 

To discuss digital exclusion, the participants were presented with an interactive challenge “Do you know what it is to be digitally excluded?”, which can be found here. It was important for participants to put themselves in the shoes of people who are currently digitally excluded. The DigitAll awareness campaign on digital exclusion was also explored. The campaign video draws attention to the human rights threatened by digital exclusion, such as the right to housing, education, work, and privacy. 

And while the transition to digital (education) is inevitable, it must be implemented in a way that caters to the needs of all individuals effectively. To achieve this, different projects were presented regarding inclusive design and digital inclusion, such as Design Index, Universal Design for Learning and tools from the Flemish Knowledge Center Digital and Media Literacy: Mediawijs

Embracing lifelong learning for digital skills: Keeping up with the pace of technology

In a context of the individual and organisational levels, embracing lifelong learning for digital skills is key. By doing so, educators, facilitators and other practitioners stay informed about technological advancements and trends and can effectively participate in today’s digital world.

DigCompEdu - European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators was presented as the framework describing what it means for educators to be digitally competent, following the recommendation to explore the Scaffold cards. To assess these digital skills, different tools were showcased to participants: MyDigiSkills and Skillify

LLLP would like to thank all the participants of the three online training courses, for everyone’s participation and motivation to learn more about inclusion and inclusive practices.
