1. PURPOSE OF THE MSP
The aim of Communotic is to create a network between training organizations in order to improve the use of ICT in the educational field: e-learning, smartphones to link trainees with trainers or between them, serious games to choose a job or learn basic skills, videos to prepare the 1st day in a job, etc.
The network links training organisations of a region, Normandy in North-West of France, but extends to various stakeholders in the education and employment fields: public institutions, experts in ICT and education, associations (jobseekers, handicapped).
The first activity is knowledge: disseminate knowledge about good practices in the use of ICT for education or professional inclusion. Meetings, workshops, webinars, MOOCs are organized for members, to enable them to know the state of art on the subject.
The second is to improve best practices and share experiences: members exchange between them on the problems they have and the solutions they experiment. Most of the time, trainees and jobseekers are involved in the feedback of the solutions.
The third is test. Within the framework of Communotic, ICT products, e.g. e-learning platforms or serious games, are hired or bought so that the members may test them before buying them (or not). Some entreprises now consult Communotic to help them develop new products.
The fourth is special workshops on ICT and illiteracy: many projects are led now on the use of ICT to acquire basic skills and seem really of great promise.
3. CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS
The platform (website and technical form) and the first years of the community manager have been supported by public funds, from the Region and the European social Fund.
The region still supports the platform. The contribution is free for the members; so far they "pay" by intellectual contributions. To extend the activities of the network, a study is made for building a local digital money, on the "Moniba" model.
6. SOCIAL IMPACT
Normandy is one of the first regions in France, which got involved in the "multimodal" training. As Normandy is a rural region, the objective of the partnership is to help people to access to training, mainly vocational training, despite transport problems. This has been a success: about 20% of the trainees use the possibility to attend their training at home or in a telecentre.
Another positive impact is the way the education has changed: trainers have theirs ways of teaching due to the use of the ICT, mainly through a better view of the different ways people are learning, better contacts and individualisation of the teaching. With more implication of the learner in his/her own learning, we observe and confirm much less abandonment of training and more success in passing the exams.
