Virtual Kick Off Meeting, 3th of April 2023

published on April 4

tw-12

The first meeting for the project "Life skills 4 inclusion" (Project reference: 2022-2-IT02-KA210-ADU-000091959), coordinated by Cooperativa Diversa Arte, based in Rome, Italy, with the support of the partners Dinserta (Spain), Community Development Institute (Macedonia) and Aketh (Greece), with a budget of € 60,000.00 and funded by the European Commission within the framework of Erasmus+ Adult sector, took place on Monday 3 April.

The meeting was held online, and the participants, project managers and presidents of the institutions involved, had the pleasure of getting to know each other better, at least visually, and thus being able to break the ice in order to establish a cool and open atmosphere. In fact, the meeting started with an interactive session, in which participants shared with the group their mood and feelings regarding the start of the prgectuality. Immediately a great desire to work together emerged, with enthusiasm and professionalism. 

The meeting then developed by examining the more technical aspects of the project and sharing the tasks to be carried out, each with their own work assignments. To this end, the following session was very useful, in which each project manager took the floor, describing clearly and in detail his or her own reality as a territorial entity and the expectations of each on the impacts that the project will generate on the local community and context. 

It was a very interesting and formative moment of sharing for everyone, which allowed us to relate the hard and soft skills of the whole consortium and also allowed us to understand the needs of all the entities involved. 

The participants then discussed the international activity, which will take place at the Dideas partner site. In fact, after having shared in detail the aspects relating to the themes of the activity, the working days and the results that the partners will generate, the Dideas project manager took the floor, explaining in more detail the logistical aspects relating to the location, how it can be reached and we defined together the dates on which the week of international activity will be held. 

After this more serious moment, we moved on to choose the project logo together, from the three that had been proposed. We also shared and defined together the best project practices, in order to give life to a project that also cares about the sustainability of actions in an ecological key, a factor that cannot be neglected under any circumstances in this historical moment, creating an internal protocol within the partnership, called "Zero Environmental Impact".

 

We discussed the next steps to be developed in preparation for the international activity and closed with the last session for any doubts, questions, considerations, and final clarifications.

castellon-de-la-plana-reisefuehrer-kirche-der.jpeg

From September 17th to 24th, the transnational project workshop took place in Castellón, Spain. The activity involved professionals and trainers in the adult education sector, experts who daily support individuals with disabilities within partnership organizations. With the aim of assisting this target group in acquiring appropriate life skills, the meeting was crucial for the development of two very important project outputs, namely:

  • A digital toolkit based on innovative methods for teaching Life Skills to learners with disabilities.
  • The creation of digital measurement tools to assess the improvement of Life Skills among disabled learners within adult education courses.

  • A digital toolkit based on innovative methods for teaching Life Skills to learners with disabilities.
  • The creation of digital measurement tools to assess the improvement of Life Skills among disabled learners within adult education courses. 

 

During a seven-day intensive work meeting in Castellón, Spain, professionals from North Macedonia, Greece, Spain, and Italy came together with a clear goal: to design a toolkit with targeted activities to work on the "life skills" of people with disabilities.

Participant Distribution during Activities: As the meeting involved participants from diverse backgrounds, priority was given to creating three mixed groups. This strategy aimed to incorporate a wide range of perspectives and experiences, ensuring that the developed activities were as inclusive and adaptive as possible.

 

The Created Toolkit: 

The digital toolkit aims to be a supportive tool for educators in the adult sector who work with adults with disabilities needing to develop the 10 fundamental life skills identified by the World Health Organization (WHO). For each skill, the team has created practical support tools to be applied in daily work. The applications are guided and offer practical insights for planning follow-ups and variations to customize the applications case by case. Moreover, the tools created for individual life skills can also be used by caregivers and other professionals involved in the personal and professional development of adults with disabilities.

The toolkit can be accessed by clicking the following button

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Created Assessment Tool: 

This digital tool was developed to assess and measure the progress of life skills in disabled learners participating in adult training courses. This tool is essential for monitoring the effectiveness of life skills teaching and making any necessary improvements to the educational path. The assessment tool has been created in two versions, one of which is simplified to make it accessible to students with lower cognitive ages. In fact, in many cases, the cognitive age of people with disabilities does not correspond to their chronological age, and it is important to consider this characteristic in the daily application of these tools.

The assessment tools, in both the full version and the shorter version for lower cognitive ages, can be accessed by clicking the following buttons:
