Technological Empowerment for VET trainers. An Open Educational Resource (OER) to train VET trainers in the design and use of m-learning methodologies

M-learning is the addition of learning (in any modality), mobile devices (Mobile, tablets, etc.) and wireless network (Pacheco and Robles, 2006). This learning modality has some unique attributes that can enhance education beyond the ‘anywhere, anytime’ learning (Shuler, 2009). Moreover, it allows individual or collaborative learning, trains problem solving skills, allows access to information in the moment of need, etc. Nevertheless most of VET trainers are not aware about the potential of mobile devices as a tool for learning or do not have the necessary competences/knowledge to use mobile devices for learning. The aim of MOBILE-TECH project is to make mobile learning a reality in VET centers by supporting teachers, trainers, educational staff and youth workers in acquiring or improving the use of mobile learning and related digital competences in an Open Collaborative Learning Platform. To achieve these objectives, we will develop three open resources:

– A Trainers´ guide for mobile resources to be used in the classroom. The guide will include National and European good practices about m-learning;

– A Trainers´ course: How to develop new training resources and teach mobile learning;

– An Open Collaborative Learning Platform for trainers´ learning multimedia resources, including a section to enable interaction among users.

With MOBILE-TECH project we will contribute to the adaptation and empowerment of the VET trainers to the demands and needs of their students by providing them with the necessary competences in mobile learning.
