Between January and April 2016 3 organizations from Italy, Poland and Spain tested innovative toolkit which aims at reducing the inequalities faced by young people who cannot access learning mobility opportunities, in particular, young people from disadvantaged social groups.To achieve „Social Inclusion through Virtual International Mobility” project objectives partners: City Council of Alcalá de Guadaíra, Cantiere Giovani and Kulturatka took part in a series of activities at local and transnational level in order to develop, validate and disseminate the Toolkit for Virtual Mobility. The Toolkit based on non-formal education was developed by the partners and implemented locally and transnationally during workshops for youth. Thanks to virtual activities, this Toolkit will give to young people who cannot travel, the opportunity to develop similar competences to the ones gained by those taking part in transnational learning mobility activities.
The workshops based on recommended by educational database – SALTO, were implemented online in virtual world – Second Life. Each project partner engaged 16 young people from disadvantaged social groups who cannot access learning mobility opportunities. Kulturatka implemented workshops in Kraków and gave youth from excluded groups an opportunity to raise up their key competencies.
Evaluation of the workshops allows to implement changes and improvements to the prepared educational tools that update will be made available as open source.
This Toolkit will be a stepping stone towards reducing the inequalities by giving virtual learning mobility opportunities to young people who cannot access transnational mobility opportunities.
„Social Inclusion through Virtual International Mobility” project is co-funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus + programme.
