Digital Education Through Adult Learners EU-Enlargement Stories
Start date: Nov 1, 2010,

Familiarizing with other cultures supports the process of European integration and should include all target groups, especially low-skilled adults, seniors and mature employees, who are the less likely to be involved in adult education activities. DeTALES derives its rationale from this statement and investigates the impact of EU enlargement focusing on the recently acceded member states in particular on how they have integrated into EU, assessing the impact of old members and bringing up the expectation of next members through the following topics:-opening of frontiers/mobility,-European labour market, -European cultural identities and diversities of new and old members. DeTALES brings together adult learners from the oldest members Italy, Germany and UK to interact with the new ones Lithuania, Hungary (2004), Bulgaria (2007) and Turkey by involving adults actively, through sharing and bringing stories (storytelling method) together using low cost digital devices.DeTALES objectives are:-to raise Key competences on EU enlargement topics and on European common values- to raise civic keys-to encourage intercultural dialogue among EU members-to teach digital storytelling competences to adults -to encourage adults to use the training materials on their own-to encourage disadvantage people participation in LLLDigital storytelling is adapt to foster the awareness on EU-Enlargement.
