The specific objectives of the project:

The Wikinomics project aims to foster key competences required for employability in the constantly changing environments of the labour market.
The project sets free-culture and wiki methodologies as the basis for an innovative pedagogical methodology. These two innovative approaches demonstrated a great potential in developing a wide range of key competences required for the future labour market needs, including creativity, innovation, collaboration, ICT literacy, communication in mother tongue and foreign languages, learning to learn, social and civic awareness, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship.
The specific objectives of the project are the following:

  1. To adapt, formalize and spread a framework of ECVET key-competences developed through the use of free-culture and wiki methodologies;
  2. To develop, implement and evaluate a training module for the pedagogical use of free-culture and wiki methodologies in VET contexts;
  3. To conduct a series of collaborative wiki-based learning scenarios in which VET trainers will conduct meaningful activities in order to achieve shared results and learning outcomes;
  4. To create a sustainable community of practices among VET actors among Europe, including institutions, trainers, trainees, enterprises and stakeholders in different sectors. The project will adapt and spread a universal training approach and model, integrating practical methodologies and tools, applicable to different sectors of activity.
