VISConti Project: 2014-2016. ValIda was the external evaluator of the VISConti Project and an active contributor to the recommendations that were published at the end of the project. It is now a central player in the exploitation of the results of the project and the maintenance of the community that was built around the project.
VISConti was an Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnership for VET. The partnership was made up of 16 universities, schools, education authorities and other organisations from 9 countries under the leadership of the Norges Teknik-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet of Norway.
It was conceived to create a platform for creative and adventurous expression through project work for students following VET studies in science related subjects. It is also a space for structured and constructive networking between students, teachers and science professionals from industry who come together in a Community of Practice for innovation and scientific creativity.
VISConti is a network with three main aims :
– to generate a virtual community in which teachers, students, professionals and entrepreneurs involved in science, technology, IT and related subjects all become VISConti players, who propose ideas, carry out peer assessments thereof and build profiles in scientific creativity, whilst functioning as a community of practice;
– to experiment and create tools with which teachers in vocational schools may adopt a more structured approach to assessment of projects that students already create as part of their assessment and that later on these tools become common ground for peer assessment of ideas and concepts in the VISConti community of players;
– to produce a new generation of students and teachers in vocational schools having a culture of interactivity with professionals / entrepreneurs in the fields of science, technology, IT and related subjects, rather than occasional internships or sporadic job fairs and other events.
ValIda participated in the Trasnational Coordination Meetings and Multiplier Event hosted by Confindustria Palermo:
