For that matter, a second work group meeting is programmed for Monday 11.05.2015.
Beside other matter in debate, such as the application of projects together (besides the already applied project proposal eSMART and eCARE, ERASMUS+ 2015), the aim of this work group meeting was to identify and outline possible application of IGTrain mentoring and work-based training processes using both residential training (Portugal) and for Turkish’s activities, the Open Web provider Google, and more specifically the platform Google Site and all related tools, such as Google Docs, Google Forms, Google Drive, to name but a few. The workshop gathered a group of six attendees.
This meeting was organized on 08.05.2015 in the facilities of the school, by Waterpolis and the school, with the support and leadership of Mrs. Selma Kartal, Assistant Manager.
The working activities provided an excellent opportunity to discuss and outline the train-the-trainer (TTT) and on-the-job (JOB) concepts and learning activities. The meeting also provided conditions to prepare the referred activities, namely the establishment of protocols to include ESCO and ECVET frameworks, in coordination with Waterpolis partners and network in Norway, France, Italy, Spain, FYROM, and Croatia.
A variety of topics on Vocational education and Training differences and similarities where discussed globally and Rendez-vous was taken for Monday 11.05.2015 to further deepen the debate on IGTrain, addressing specifically the matter of intergenerational learning. It was proposed by Waterpolis that the additional workshops could be documented in order to be able to create valuable information for another publication.
Finally, Bruno Sales da Silva took the opportunity to provide information and updates on the IGTrain national dissemination event that was held on 17.02.2014 in Lisbon, Portugal, and to inquire on the possibility for the school to contribute to its dissemination among the school’s network.
