The eight organsiations running the HYS project are also active in other Erasmus+ projects. Here we present a selection of them.
Digitalized Financial Education for Seniors
Recent studies show that while younger people use online banking as a matter of course, most older people still prefer to go to the bank. In times of decreasing branch density, however, the use of online banking becomes unavoidable, especially for seniors with less mobility.
In order to improve the current insufficient participation of adults in learning in partner countries and across Europe, we need to provide high-quality education opportunities and identify main barriers that hinder participation and persistence of adults in learning. The aim of the project is to address problems and difficulties and respond to the needs of adult education providers and adult learners.
In MobileBE, eight adult education organisations from seven European countries develop new learning opportunities for people in need of basic education, especially people who are in particularly demanding situations in terms of employment, family, etc. Each partner organisation in the project develops and tests two different new approaches for offering learning opportunities in various fields of basic education. Basic education typically includes reading, writing, everyday maths, but also linguistic and social skills.
TEACH is the acronym of the Erasmus+ project Targeting Extremism and Conspiracy Theories.
The project aims to identify the needs of institutions in adult education for dealing with conspiracy-theoretical mindsets. A transnational and multidisciplinary team of experts from theory and practice in adult education develops instruments for measuring and continuous monitoring of the presence of conspiracy theories among participants of adult education classes. In a second step, a methodology is to be developed, aiming to enable educators to handle and to react to conspiracy beliefs they face in their environment. Special emphasis will be placed on European cooperation in order to ensure that the projectsÂ´ products can be applied in all EU countries.
In the "Bildung+digital?!" project, eight adult education organisations from seven European countries come together in order to share their experience with introducing "digital" methods into their everyday work and especially their learning and teaching.
