Answers taken from our Grundtvig 2 proposal.
What are the aims and objectives of ERDE?
This joint venture intends to develop concerted methods and contents to build up supporting ICT structures in rural areas.
The aim of the project is to learn about examples of best practise of regional development and educational cooperation in different countries, as well as to support their distribution. We expect from every participating country to present relevant projects which will, hopefully, lead to innovative jointly developed training facilities for adults in rural areas. Our main emphasis is on the connection between educational and social processes initiated by ICT.
What is the nature and expertise of the organisations?
The participating institutions are very heterogeneous. They cover various working sectors:
What activities are taking place?
What are the particular results or other outcomes which are expected?
Extending our own competencies and tasks, realising different solutions, getting new ideas, becoming experienced in transnational cooperation, learning to transmit new experiences
What impact is expected on the participating institutions?
Becoming more well-known even in foreign countries, extending the own image, improving the own offers, increasing core competences, becoming open minded, building up a network of competences
What impact is expected on the local communities?
getting fresh impulses; fostering networking; improving the social climate; raising the interest in education; stopping the rural exodus; implementing precise educational measures; fostering the acceptance of the EU`s enlargement in regions, which share borders directly with new members
How do you intend to evaluate the success of ERDE?
The realization of:
1) between the participating organisations:
The project is designed for people working in the field of adult's education, and for those supporting local processes. Within this project we wish to create specific educational offers in various thematic fields.
How will ERDE ensure the active participation of learners?
By the active incorporation of all participants during the whole process (planning and participating in workshops and excursions, using the interactive website). Reflexion and evaluation after each workshop will be made.
Are there any provisions for the (self-)assessment of the participating learners?
We intend to design a concerted questionnaire before the first workshop as well as the "self evaluation tool".
Will ERDE address in any way the issue of accreditation and certification of the knowledge, skills or competence acquired by adult learners prior to and/or during the project?
As this project is seen as an informal learning processes, certificates of knowledge and skilles are not important, but the question of certificates might become important as soon as we develop new traning courses. The aim of the first workshop is to define all expertises in the vast field of "cooperations in rural areas supported by ICT" of all participants. All them already have this, although in various thematic fields. This is the focus of this partnership to exchange knowledge to empower rural areas in the whole complexity. At the end of the project another position finding is made to controll the learning process. As we aspire a 1 year partership, it will be possible to integrate new knowledge into our daily work.
One aim is the preparation of a Grundtvig 1 - project. The content: the curriculum of a training course for multiplier in ural areas.
How will ERDE enhance learning opportunities for persons with a disability, chronic illness or other special educational need?
Although no specific measures for handicapped people are proposed, we expect a barrier-free access to knowledge and cultural heritage through the application of ICT, which is also open to the above mentioned. promote the participation of learners or organisations / institutions disadvantaged for socio-economic, geographical or other reasons?
Most of the participating organisations focus on low populated rural areas, where the access to education is basically difficult, and where without intensive support the access to a fast electronic datanet is not possible.
How will ERDE promote equality between women and men?
Women in rural areas can only get free access to information and knowledge by the application of ICT!
What are the roles and tasks of the coordinating institution?
Communication within the project will be mainly ensured via internet and email. ICT`s and their application in rural areas are the core part of this partnership which focusses on extensive spread of knowledge supported by ICT (wireless LAN etc.)
Additionally, we want to test new efficient forms of electronic communication e.g. weblogs, wikis, open theory etc. too.
