Project duration: 2017 – 2019

Adults in Europe have difficulties in the three areas identified as core competences by the European Commission: literacy, mathematical competence and digital competence. For example, in Europe, one in five 15 year-olds and one in five 16-65 year-olds have poor reading skills; and around 55 million adults between 15 and 65 years of age have literacy difficulties (ELINET, 2015). Regarding mathematical competences, the 2013 OECD Survey on Adult Competencies (PIAAC) found that 24% of European adults scored at (or below) level one in a scale of five. The data are not better if we focus on digital skills. According to the data of the Digital Indicators Table, 80 million Europeans have never used the Internet, and according to the most recent data published by the European Commission on the Digital Economy and Society Index (2017), 44% of Europeans do not have basic digital skills.

The need to promote innovation in the development of adult education, adapting the teaching-learning process to the changes in society, mainly through the use of active and cooperative methodologies, diversified evaluation instruments and integrated Information and Communications. Technologies (ICT), brings us to propose this project, which will design and develop a web application.
