PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main project foundations is to develop and implement a specifically designed curriculum for ICTs for agricultural purposes and the knowledge and skills for delivering this curriculum through VET. The goal is to achieve more successful adoption of specifically developed ICTs for agriculture, that will contribute to the development of the agriculture sector and the rural areas. Considering the important role of the young farming population and the advisors in the agricultural extension for the development of the agriculture, we have put special attention on creating a curriculum for the following target groups: high school students, farmers, advisers and teachers. Additional aspect that is considered in defining the target group, is involving individuals with special needs. Also, we believe, that ICTs increases the opportunities, for the people with special needs, as well as their employability within the agricultural sector.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

The purpose of the Focused Needs Analyses is to identify the specific needs of the target audience in the project (high-school students, farmers, advisors and teachers). This activity will enable creating an crucial input information for development of the curriculum for ICT knowledge and skills in VET for agriculture.

The e-collaboration platform is consisted of two major parts: front-end (FE) and back-end (BE). FE will be available for the entire public meaning all direct and indirect beneficiary in this project. Through this component of the e-platform, all created documents that are results of this project (curriculum, written reports, forum discussions, e-book, videos etc.) will be shared for the public use. The BE will be created for efficient sharing of all relevant documents for management, monitoring and evaluation of the execution of the project activities. Through this component, all partners will have a convenient access to all relevant resources for the project, during the project and after the project duration. Through the e-collaboration platform the project team will create a tool that can be used for this area of activities, after the completion of the project.

A curriculum for ICT knowledge and skills for VET in agricultural will be developed. This curriculum has the purpose to transfer the specific knowledge skills and competences in the area of ICTs, needed for students in the VET for agricultural, advisors and all other participating subjects going through the process of VET for agriculture. The curriculum will be adopted to the specific experience to all participating countries.

The guidelines will examine all factors that are crucial for the successful implementation of curriculum, materials and tools. Moreover, this guide will describe the training program, its contents, educational materials and tools, as well as, the training methodology. In addition to the technical description, it will contain the feedback from the pilot process. The guidelines will include an overview of the project, the results of the testing experience, and a common set of recommendations for the successful implementation of program in real training environments.

This Handbook will be the final product of the project and it will include a digital text file and some short video tutorials. All the models, tools, methodologies produced within the project will be collected and framed in a didactic guide. It will be handed out to every participant before the end of the project and sent by email or post to every participant of the other focus groups and dissemination activities held during project. It will be distributed also to the potential stakeholders and policy makers, and to the contacts of the partners and through their participation to other projects and events, also after the end of this project.
