EPALE Literacy

 

 

Em celebração do Dia Internacional da Literacia (08/09/2017), a EPALE dedica o mês de setembro à Literacia de Adultos.

Na UE há cerca de 55 milhões de adultos (com idades compreendidas entre os 16 e os 65 anos) com défices de literacia. Aumentar os níveis de literacia na Europa ajudaria estes adultos a:

  • integrar-se melhor na sociedade
  • encontrar um trabalho mais estável e mais bem remunerado
  • reduzir o risco de numerosas enfermidades
  • melhorar a sua vida familiar
  • reduzir os riscos de cometer crimes.

Consulte a página temática da EPALE Competências Básicas, na qual a comunidade e as equipas nacionais EPALE reuniram artigos, recursos e estudos de caso interessantes sobre este tema (o conteúdo varia de acordo com a versão linguística selecionada). Visite a EPALE regularmente para aceder a novos conteúdos, durante o mês de setembro!

Gostaríamos de o convidar para participar na discussão escrita EPALE sobre quais as competências de literacia que os adultos necessitam e quais os fatores de sucesso para uma política nacional eficaz neste campo. A discussão decorrerá em inglês e terá lugar  nesta página, entre 4 e 7 de setembro de 2017.  A discussão será moderada pelo Coordenador Temático EPALE para as Competências para a vida, David Mallows, em colaboração com os nossos parceiros da Rede Europeia para as Competências Básicas (EBSN).

Esperamos vê-lo por lá!

    Dear all, 

    As in other message I did refer the LIDIA Project (Adult Digital Literacy), a project carryed out by the Instituto of Education of the University of Lisbon, it seems to be appropriate to leave here a brief information about it.

    In a perspective of lifelong learning, the project LIDIA adopts a broader view of the progress made and the problems identified in Portugal in the field of education, adults training and qualification, regarding  and aligns its action within the framework of recent social responses for promoting literacy, digital inclusion and qualification of the Portuguese population.

    Thus, the LIDIA project assumes as a strategic objective the development of innovative ICT-based content, materials and activities with technologies tailored to the life needs of a "digital society", aimed at raising the awareness and providing training to trainers and other social intervention technicians who work with those adults who are more vulnerable to info exclusion.

    In this way, the project seeks to contribute to the creation of conditions that, based on the principle of isomorphism (homology of processes), ensure that adults who are more vulnerable to digital exclusion can develop those competences nowadays considered as key to lifelong learning in accordance with their personal and professional expectations.

    Being a research project we start to identity situations where adult citizens find it difficult to exercise their autonomy by not knowing how to use digital Technologies. Based on the analysis of that material, in a second momento the goal was to produce training materials and resources to support inclusion and digital literacy of adults. 

    The primary beneficiaries of the LIDIA project are trainers, social animators, social and educational staff, working in potential learning contexts, both formal and non-formal and based in Portugal, involved in the mediation and implementation of actions aimed at audiences typically more excluded from the information society, namely: professionals responsible for cultural, educational and social fields in local administration offices; private social institutions; cultural and recreational associations; museums; universities; senior day centers; teachers; etc.

    More information can be reached at the website of the project (http://lidia.ie.ulisboa.pt).

    Comments and questions are welcome.

    Thanks a lot.
