It is widely known that through education and training, many adults augment their abilities, knowledge and resume with the sole purpose of enhancing their position within the labor market. Especially during times of economic downturn, the way to finding a stable job enforces raising ones knowledge and skills. Thus, provision of training plays a crucial part to the beneficiary, especially to the young where unemployment is at its peak. Quality requires the trainer and by extent his collaborators to be themselves of excellent quality and their methodologies modern so that they generate interest.
Today, the increase of the ease of access to technical products has enabled one to be able to know and operate from childhood, at least at a basic level, the computer systems and other wonders of modern technology such as tablet, smartphone etc.. Traditional methods of teaching no longer generate interest to the new generations resulting in the reduction of absorption of the information provided during class.
As the sending partner and the organization submitting this proposal, the management of SSM wishes to provide an innovative and qualitative training environment, so that through successful teaching we can raise the qualifications of our trainees. The experience of SSM in the field of adult education started a lot of years ago. SSM’s areas of expertise are mentioned in detail at sector C.1.3.
As the receiving organization, e-SCHOOL Educational Group staged on Greece, has great expertise in training on a number of innovative subjects such as ECO Innovation, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality etc.. Members of e-SCHOOL are known for their academic works as well as peer reviewed scientific articles, as well as great experience through the participation of e-SCHOOL in European Projects such as Erasmus+, Leonardo, Grundtvig, FP6/7 & EU Asia-Link (described in more detail at section C.2.3.
The main subject of the training at Greece will be learning the basic functions of the Augmented Reality technology (A.R.), hands-on practical sessions for the beneficiaries, and the use of A.R. in adult education.
The project will start with preparatory stages (seminar for technical definitions in English, seminar for the good use of presentation techniques, useful information of the area where the training etc.), and e-SCHOOL will host at Greece the training course on Augmented Reality.
