"Striving for better technology education for VET students" - this is the motto of 3D and VR for VET consortium, an Erasmus+ program funded project within key action „Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices“ I am happy to be contributing to as a partner since January 2020.
The main objective of this ambitious project is to provide materials for the rapid acquisition of new knowledge and skills in new technologies through self-paced online modules and practical exercises offline. Thanks to the project partners from Croatia, Romania and Norway, the project outputs will target VET practitioners in vocational industrial and medical schools.
Name of the project and grant agreement:
3D and Virtual Reality Technologies for VET
Grant agreement: no. 2019-1-HR01-KA203-061010
Juraj Dobrila University of Pula (Croatia)
Short summary of the project:
The main idea of 3DandVRforVET is the development, design, and transfer of the innovative specialized skills and tools used in the fields of additive technologies, robotics and virtual reality into the vocational education sector through the development of specialized education modules.
The main objective of the project is the dissemination of knowledge to the students, professors and other enthusiasts in the field of new trending technologies of CAD modeling, 3d printing, and Virtual reality. The special focus is on the target audience of vocational industrial and medical school.
Implementing blended learning, in other words coupling online self-paced learning with practical offline training would greatly facilitate the acquisition of new knowledge and skills in fast-paced technologies and would, thus, be a benefit to teachers, learners, and other interested users.
The expectations of the project users are focused on the rapid acquisition of skills and knowledge in order to make the acquired knowledge relevant and in line with new trends in the industry. Special attention will be paid to designing suitable materials for blind and visually impaired people as well as people with physical disabilities. The universality of application would easily ensure the exchange of expertise, experience and good practice with partner organizations in Croatia and abroad. This project will create a prototype learning system, that can evolve rapidly, to suit the needs of fast-paced technological improvements, and ensure the expertise is rapidly provided to future generations of VET learners in Croatia and abroad.
