Briefly Information of READY Erasmus+ Project
In today’s world, where the source of power is seen as knowledge, all studies are knowledge oriented or based. Whichever profession we choose, we will encounter facts such as digital competencies, digital literacy, computational thinking, augmented and virtual reality, deep learning, AI, emotional intelligence, machine learning, cloud technologies, the internet of things and big data. Thus, it is predicted that the division of labour between human and machine in 2025 will be 48% human and 52% machine. Also, existing professions will transform within 30 years, new professions will emerge and 90% of these professions will require the skills of digital age. The digital transformation of societies and economies means that the competencies of future professions are different from today. In this sense, raising people with these competencies is inevitable in terms of being prepared for societies. With this project, it is aimed to contribute to this international goal as educators. Our main target group is students who will shape our future, teachers who need to be a role model and guide students during this transformation and parents are other target groups. We defined specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-based objectives to be successful when we will be implementing our project. The main objectives of this project, which we have prepared as vocational schools, are:
-to raise awareness about the digital transformation process,
-to develop the competencies required by the digital society and economy.
In principle, we agreed that the project has international and national dimensions and consists of separate parts, requiring an institutional distribution of tasks. In this way, we aimed to contribute to the institution culture, to do works simultaneously by different team members, to lead to better team productivity and easier project management overall. In this sense, we decided that the project will be divided into the following working procedures and these procedures will be carried out in teams. The teams will carry out planned activities collaboratively, according to timetables. It is also agreed that the teams will be formed by all partners.
As partner countries Turkey, Slovakia, Portugal, Czech Republic, Norway and Poland, we considered PRINCE2 methodology when we are distributing tasks and responsibilities to ensure sound management of the project. We established an executive board and we agreed to determine sub-commissions according to the work procedures of the project. In this context, to ensure good communication and cooperation, all partners will be in contact through internet. To facilitate contact between students and teachers who take part in the project, an eTwinning project will be developed. Using funding properly translates a project into measurable and meaningful. So, our budget that was well-planned according to methodology provides the basis for project cost control. We discussed the target groups, principles, objectives and methods within the scope of dissemination activities and decided to implement the plan by all partners consensually. Different groups that will take part in the project activities are students, teachers, administrative staff, parents, stakeholders. These groups will participate in project directly or indirectly. In the scope of the project 60 teachers and 120 students will participate the mobilities and it is aimed to reach 8000 people throughout the project. We determined important parts of digitalisation process that were assigned as titles of LTT to reach our goals with partners and prepared content of LTT activities according to them.
