Digital Pathways mentors from Ireland and Poland travelled for a week to Stuttgart, Germany to participate in workshops with the German Digital mentors.
During the 5 days (5th – 9th February 2016), the Digital mentors from the three different European countries worked together on development of the Digital Pathways Programme and the CPD materials and discussed how to overcome the different challenges encountered during the progress of the project. They met with the young people involved in the project in Germany, visited the Film Academy in Ludwigsburg and brainstormed on project videos development.
H2 Learning, the Digital Hub Development Agency (DHDA), the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Krzyzowa Foundation (Poland) and MFG Baden-Württemberg (Germany), met up for two days to discuss a number of topics relevant to the project.
Discussions took place about a ‘Creative Lab’ set up in Ireland, which will be run in the Mac Lab, located in the Rua Red Arts Centre in Tallaght. Participants are recruited locally and the programme is run on Wednesday afternoons from 2.30 to 4.30pm.
The meeting was held at Stuttgart in Germany on Tuesday and Wednesday, 15th and 16th September. Representatives from The Digital Hub, H2 Learning, NCAD, Krzyzowa Foundation (Poland) and MFG Baden-Württemberg (Germany), met to discuss the methodology of the project, project outcomes and dissemination.
The project partners, along with the tutors assigned to this project, will next meet in October 2015 at The Digital Hub and NCAD for a Dublin-based study visit. The project, which will run until January 2017, is funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme, managed in Ireland by Léargas.
H2 Learning, the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Krzyzowa Foundation (Poland) and MFG Baden-Württemberg (Germany), met up for five days at the Krzyzowa Foundation for the first study visit of the project.
The Digital skills pathways project first study visit took place in Poland (29th June – 3rd of July 2015). The Digital Mentors from each partner country travelled to Krzyzowa, Poland for 5 days of workshops and visits to the different youth organisations to learn about approach to youth training in Poland.
During the study visit, digital media workshops were delivered. The workshops were prepared by the Digital Mentors from Ireland and were delivered to the Digital Mentors taking part in the study visit with the aim to prepare them for the Digital Pathways programme delivery in Poland.
