Just before a new work and TV season came hand in hand with September the international project Trans e-Scouts team met for the second time. Hosted by Croatian partner Telecentar, the meeting was greatly worth-participating because of two reasons: first - a lot of activities had been accomplished since the last time, many topics had to be discussed and the second reason – meeting was organized in a wonderful place on Earth – Rovinj.
Implementing Trans eScouts project the consortium seeks to build a learning circle in which the youth supports senior people in ICT usage and, in return, seniors mentor youth in their efforts to access the labor market and to face challenges of adult life, completing in this way a circle of learning, exchange and conviviality.
During three days meeting the project members shared their results in performing initial context analysis. 63 young people and 103 seniors of 4 countries participated in the survey organized online as well as personally. The results showed the great respondents’ interest into the project idea. 92% of youngsters (16-25 y.o.) appreciated the life experience of seniors, more than half (54%) expressed interest to find out about their job experience. These two areas of knowledge will be the core for further project stages.
Meanwhile, seniors found young people responsible (62%) and initiative (53%). Three quarters (72%) of senior responders were interested in joining youth-to-senior ICT training and more than a half of them (54%) interested in senior-to-youth mentoring. The latter will be invited to participate in the project pilot in spring, 2015.
Complying with the criteria all project partners introduced proactive and experienced e-facilitators who were chosen to take care of pilot process in each of project countries after special training.
The next project episode contains the development of learning curricula, which is supposed to be ready by the end of this year.
