eLene2learn - exploring and promoting the contribution of ICT and digital media to the development of learning to learn competencies in lifelong learning transitions
Start date: 01 Dec 2011,

I like to learn... I learn to learn... eLene2learn. As lifelong learners, many of us will face a number of transitions, from secondary school to university, entering employment and back into training or education. Adapting to new physical and virtual environments and to different teaching and learning approaches represents a challenge for any learner and not everyone succeeds, in particular in the transition from secondary education (SE) to higher education (HE). While a number of efforts are being made in pockets across Europe, the vast majority exist at disciplinary level or focus on practical support. Research and needs analysis by eLene2learn network members strongly suggests that the development of learning to learn competencies supported by ICT - in the form of ePortfolios, blogs, social networks, online video or serious games - could help equip learners to deal with these transitions more effectively. eLene2learn will develop and sustain a European-wide multi-stakeholder community of practice supported by a web 2.0 e-collaboration environment. Focus groups and training actions will involve teachers and learners in SE and HE at local & national levels. Webinars, a practice exchange forum and a multi-stakeholder transnational workshop will bring the issues and projects results to a wider audience. A lessons learnt report including recommendations and conditions for transferability will be presented at a final conference together with a short film of video testimonials promoting the contribution of ICT to learning to learn in lifelong learning transitions. The core partnership of 9 experienced partners from HE and SE, including EDEN with its 200 members, will work closely with a wider network of nearly 30 associate partners including secondary schools, government bodies for education and other related networks, providing the scope for far reaching impact in terms of mainstreaming use of ICT in developing learning to learn competences for life and employability.
