Objectives and description of the action
The ICT Multilateral Projects support the development of innovative ICT-based content, services, pedagogies and practices for lifelong learning. They complement ICT enhanced learning activities and projects under the sectoral programmes Comenius, Erasmus, Grundtvig and Leonardo da Vinci, by addressing ICT teaching and learning needs across two or more of those sectors.
Specifically the aim is:
- To promote a new vision for ICT forlearning embedded into long-term educational objectives and integrated in lifelong learning strategies;
- To foster the uptake of ICT for learning in education and training systems, including open and distance learning and open educational resources;
- To empower all educational actors; to foster the linking up and connecting of learning communities and the building up of new partnerships;
- To consolidate an evidence base on the added-value and impact of ICT for learning, with a particular attention to institutional as well as pedagogical innovation and change.
Projects should develop innovative practices or services. They should have a clear multiplier effect and result in greater knowledge about the use of ICT enhanced learning.
Within the priorities announced in the general call for proposals, the following types of activities may be supported by projects:
- activities reinforcing transversal competences, such as digital competence, bridging the worlds of education and work;
- activities focused on innovative pedagogy and assessment methods for diverse learning pathways.
