Under DIGIT-ALL project, partners will develop a series of online courses to help adult people with low digital skills to train them through a series of comprehensive courses, and levels.

Each course will be composed of several training modules. Participants on the online courses will receive a digital badge each time they successfully complete a training module. This way, participants can share their achievements in social media, online professional profiles or their Europass CV.

This badges will also motivate them to continue with the full course and to complete all levels of proficiency. Gamification plays a very important role in motivating learners and helps to prevent people from abandoning courses.

The badges will also act as a multiplication tool when participants share their badges, other people will see them and will enrol on the courses. Each badge has an encrypted file

attached with information about DIGIT-ALL project, the assessment method under has been released and the skills and knowledge that certifies.

The courses will be online, so participants can complete the course at their own pace. Being addressed to adult people with low digital skills the registration and access on the course will be made by the simple registration form. Partners will provide a guidance video to explain the registration and access process. Level 2 students are students with the autonomy that may need guidance under some circumstances. (https://publications.jrc.ec.europa.eu/repository/bitstream/JRC106281/web-digcomp2.1pdf_(online).pdf)

The online course will be available for 3 years after the end of the project and all materials will be released as open educational resources, so any person interested in the topic will

have enough time to complete the course and receive all badges; at the same time, other education entities can create courses based on DIGIT-ALL training materials or translate the materials to their national languages.

ADULT EDUCATION: Supporting the setting up of and access to upskilling pathways

Supporting the setting up of and access to upskilling pathways for adults with a low level of skills, knowledge and competences allowing them to enhance their literacy, numeracy and digital competences, as well as other key competencies, and to progress towards higher qualifications, including through skills identification and screening or tailored learning offers.

This project will help adult learners to develop their digital competences and at the same time to certify them under a European framework. This project is targeting the basic digital

skills each adult person should have and will encourage them to continue their training and to acquire more advanced skills. For that, partners will pay special emphasis on

gamification, to keep learners motivated and prevent them from abandoning the courses. Cybersecurity will also play an important role, learners should feel safe and know how to act in case of security breaches.

HORIZONTAL: Supporting individuals in acquiring and developing basic skills and key competencies:

The Council of the European Union, on their recommendation from the 22 May 2018 on Key competences for lifelong learning, established a framework of eight key competences to be developed in all citizens of the EU. Digital competence is one of the eight key competences from that framework.

The Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) report from 2018; recorded that in 2017, 43% of the EU population had an insufficient level of digital skills, and 17% had not at all. It is

crucial to develop digital skills in those adult learners with a low level or with no digital competences at all.

DIGIT-ALL will develop the following courses:

Course 1: Safety.

Course 2: Information and data literacy

Course 3: Communication and collaboration.

Who are the courses for:

– Low-skilled or low-qualified adults.

-Any person interested on the topic.

Project coordinator:

Orbis Institute is a non-government non-profit organization focused on education and development of one’s personality. It helps individuals to find new sources for their further personal growth and understanding of their role in society.

Online course for adult learners about DigComp competence 4: safety.

Following the digital competence framework, developed by the EC, this training module will cover the competencies to protect devices and digital content and to understand risks and

threats in digital environments: to know about safety and security measures and to have due regard to reliability and privacy.




The course will be structured in modules as follows:

1.1. Protecting devices

1.2. Protecting personal data and privacy

1.3. Protecting health and well-being

1.4. Protecting the environment

The training module will pay special attention to the following topics, to focus the main topics of the course on psychological aspects of cybersecurity:

a) Psychological behaviour and its effects (health effects)– it’s not the same as protecting personal data and privacy.

● Bullying, hating, negative vibe

● Self- presenting, comparing, presenting untrue info about myself and others

● manipulation

● Attention economy / dopamine addiction

b) Harmful behaviour – what are the effects of my harmful behaviour on my cybersecurity

● What kind of websites do I visit (f.e. ultra-right, porn/child porn, dark web, etc...)

● Illegal download

● How to protect others and the consequences of harming third parties rights: pictures and their sharing (f.e. naked pictures)

Adult learners with basic or no digital skills need to set the basis to develop them. 

And the first step must be assured their safety while using ICT technologies and digital tools.

Online course for adult learners about competence 1: Information and data literacy. 

In total, 3 online modules will be developed, for DigCom Level 2.

Following the digital competence framework, developed by the EC, this training module will cover the competencies for the Information and data literacy competence.


The structure of the module will be as follows:

1.1 Browsing, searching and filtering data, information and digital content

1.2 Evaluating data, information and digital content

1.3 Managing data, information and digital content

This module will put the focus on the following topic:

a) Critical thinking – hoax/fake news – what to believe.

Partners will put special emphasis on promoting the development of critical thinking skills into participants

Information and data literacy is a very relevant skill; during this module, participants will acquire the knowledge of setting their needs, find the information they need and also develop

the skill to differentiate real information from fake information. This last skill is in close relation to safety skills.

The course will follow the DigComp structure; the contents will be developed under the Andragogy methodology to adapt the course to the requirements of the target group. Gamification

will take on special prominence to motivate the participants to continue and move forward in the course. For each module successfully completed they will receive a digital badge that

they can share on social networks, professional profiles online or on their Europass CV.

Online course for adult learners about competence 2: communication and collaboration.

Following the digital competence framework, developed by the EC, this training module will cover the competencies for communication and collaboration literacy competence.



The structure of the module will be as follows:

1.1. Interacting through digital technologies

1.2. Sharing through digital technologies

1.3. Engaging in citizenship through digital technologies

1.4. Collaborating through digital technologies

1.5. Netiquette

1.6. Managing digital identity

The course will follow the DigComp structure; the contents will be developed under the Andragogy methodology to adapt to the requirements of the target group. Gamification will take on

special prominence to motivate the participants to continue the course through all modules. For each module successfully completed participants will receive a digital badge that they

can share on social networks, professional profiles online or on their Europass CV. This will allow them to share their achievements and motivate them to get more badges. At the

same time, it will give visibility to the project.

The course will have a duration of at least 20 hours of e-learning training. The minimum content for each course will be one short video, 20 pictures, 4 infographics and 6 self-evaluation

activities. To receive the badge of completion, all participants must go through all training content and pass the final test that will appear at the end of each module.

Innovation:

- Use of proficiency levels. Even there are courses developed under this framework, there are no specific courses to train and certify the skills and knowledge of DigComp for low-skilled

adults.

- Certification of the course: for each course partners will develop a digital open badge to validate the knowledge gained for each participant during the course.
