The project responds to the extraordinary situation in education, which arose from the long-term closure of schools and educational institutions. This situation had the greatest impact on quality in terms of practical training and vocational training. The inability to practically try or practice working with tools, devices and technologies has caused a rapid fall in the level of training quality of future employees - students and graduates of secondary vocational schools. Teachers and masters of vocational training are looking for substitutes for vocational training in a virtual space, but such a substitute for education is not systematic and of good quality. The biggest obstacle is teachers' lack of skills to work with digital tools and virtual platforms. The problem is that in the development of digital education, the greatest attention has been paid to improving digital tools and disseminating content provided digitally. However, a key aspect of the widespread deployment of these tools in school education is the readiness and ability of teachers to use these tools. This is the issue of the OnlineVET project.
The project wants to contribute to increasing the quality of digital education by creating a methodology for teachers how to teach online and also focuses on creating 3 digital courses focused on working with CNC technologies, milling and turning and work on automation lines. The innovativeness of the courses will be in the transferability of know-how to all EU countries and at the same time in the fact that the functional amendment of these practical online courses will be the Methodology, Manual and Training Program aimed at teachers to help them apply these courses in practice.
The partnership consists of 4 partners from Slovakia, Germany and Greece.
