We are pleased to inform you that the #B-Skills project has been approved by the European Commission.
The partnership includes seven complementary entities coming from six different countries: Learnable (Italy), company expert in disruptive educational methodologies, the Technology Park of Andalucía, and the University of Malaga – NICS Lab (Spain), the European Center of Entrepreneurship Competence & Excellence – ECECE (Austria), the creative studio Flow Productions (Portugal), and the non-profit organizations Edu Playground (Bulgaria) and Social Hackers (Greece).
The project aims at supporting educators and adult learners with training and supporting materials for the achievement of basic digital skills related to Blockchain technology. The adult learners will achieve these fundamental skills through flexible and motivating training paths, materials, and tools to prepare them for taking advantage of the Blockchain technology in their daily life and work.
The project seeks to increasing the supply of high-quality training provision for adult learners through the creation of flexible and engaging training focused on blockchain. This will allow adults to take advantage of one of the most disruptive technologies of the last few years, improving their access to digital services in every aspect of life and their employment opportunities.
The project will produce several tangible results such as a B-Skills handbook to provide educators with supporting materials and tools, necessary to implement, support, manage and assess effective training on blockchain for adult learners; a game-based online simulator reproducing in a visual way how blockchain works. It will allow adult learners to understand in a simple way complex concepts related to blockchain providing an accessible and motivating environment to promote adult learners’ engagement. And finally, an open web-based training course for adult learners supporting the achievement of basic digital competences related to blockchain. It will enable adult learners to access digital services and employment opportunities provided by blockchain.
