– increasing digital competence in Teacher Education and schools
We are in the midst of a digital revolution. A multitude of new media is heaped upon us every day, and today’s generations of young people play a central part in this development.
Never before have youth cultures influenced society’s means of communication the way they do today. Curious and open-minded for all things new, young people herald an upcoming paradigm shift on education - both in schools and at universities. Teaching and learning will never be the same again.
ICT Strategy for Teacher Education
Young Communication is a five-year project aiming at boosting the digital competence among Teacher training teachers and teacher students at universities, and among teachers in schools. Also, the project aims at supporting and facilitating an increased co-operation between pupils, students and teachers. A joint development may create experiences valuable for both Teacher education and school and provide several synergic effects in bridging the gap between formal and informal learning. Most of the project’s core work is carried out in thematic groups, initialized either by teachers, students or external partners.
Young Communication is supported and partially funded by the Knowledge Foundation and is a collaborative project including Blekinge Institute of Technology and Linnaeus University. Head project co-ordinator is Lennart Axelsson.
