After a year marked by the total cessation of all Erasmus+ mobilities, four of the mobilities that were pending at the beginning of the pandemic were launched on 21 June 2021. In this case, they are "STEAM Education" and "AR and VR for education in Cultural Heritage".
Four AUPEX's professionals have participated in them and for a week they have shared virtual space with representatives from different European countries through the e-learning platform enabled by EGINA (European Grants International Academy) which is the organizing entity of the action and which has extensive experience in the different fields of action of the two pieces of training.
The e-facilitators Coro Pardo and Fátima Silva have received training in "STEAM Education", to become aware of what the STEAM approach entails and how it can be applied to educational practice, thus differentiating the conventional educator from the one who has a more open prism in which he/she also becomes a designer and creator of learning. Fundamental to this learning has been for the educator to connect and relate the different subjects through creative STEAM activities, so that the presentation of content is more attractive to students. This approach is very useful for the work carried out in the Digital Competences Programme in Extremadura due to the wide range of participants and motivations for learning.
On the other hand, work has been carried out in the training "AR and VR for education in Cultural Heritage" by the coordinators Marta del Pozo and Gema Parrado, in which the main objective has been to develop theoretical and practical skills in the enhancement of tangible and intangible cultural heritage, as well as learning how to design augmented reality experiences and use virtual reality to produce digital content that represents this heritage. This learning is of essential importance in a region such as Extremadura, which has two of its main cities within the group of "World Heritage Sites".
These four mobilities are part of the total of 14 mobilities that were programmed until June 2021, thanks to the project "All Digital, new competences for digital e-facilitators" (https://erasmusplus.aupex.org/), and have been the ones that close the cycle that started in October 2019 with the first mobilities in Anderlecht, all of them specialized in contents, methodologies and resources for digital training and the improvement of citizens' employability.
