Learning E-Mobility
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Until recently, the electric vehicles were considered as one among many alternative fuel vehicles. In recent times, due to a high oil prices and environmental concerns, the awareness of the need for development of sustainable mobility based on renewable energy is growing. All automobile manufacturers produce models of electric cars, and they, slowly but unstoppably, take their place in traffic especially in urban areas. Through the previous project, Europe Electric Car (Leonardo da Vinci Partnership, 2012-2014), ŠKOLA ZA CESTOVNI PROMET (School for road traffic and transportation) from Zagreb started to follow the new technologies in transport developing competences of students and teachers of vocational schools through education and training about electric cars. In addition, the cooperation with manufacturers and other stakeholders which are directly or indirectly involved in the development of electric cars and related infrastructure, was established. This project is a logical continuation with special focus on the environmental aspect of the concept of e-mobility using electricity from renewable sources. The main goal of this project is increasing the quality of teaching and learning in vocational education system through the development of innovative new educational module ELECTRO MOBILITY and related forms of teaching and learning (ICT, OER), transfer and dissemination of good practice among European vocational schools and strengthening of the connection between vocational education and the labor market, with focus in the field of e-mobility. The project coordinator is Škola za cestovni promet from Zagreb, and the partners are two vocational schools KOUVOLA REGION VOCATIONAL COLLEGE (Finland) and ŠOLSKI CENTER CELJE (Slovenia), Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar (EIHP) Zagreb, (Croatia), Avant car d.o.o. (Ljubljana, Slovenia), DUCATI komponenti d.o.o. (Ludbreg, Croatia), NETEKO (Zabok, Croatia), and ACASA (Barcelona, Spain). Vocational schools from Croatia, Finland and Slovenia have educational programs related to the transport and logistics in the framework which have already begun to address about the concept of e-mobility. They have their own electric cars and some elements of the infrastructure required to teach about the concept. Existing infrastructure will be upgraded during the project to serve as a teaching tool for efficient learning about the e-mobility concept. The project will last 3 years. The realization of the project can be divided into 3 phases. In the first phase (the first year of implementation) the teachers and participants from partner institutions will go through the trainings during which they will study the components of the concept of e-mobility and application of the concept in different European countries. The goal of the training is to link education and educational experts (teachers) with the labor market and with the institutions that are experts in the field of the concept of e-mobility, also including transfer of knowledge, skills and good practice. In the second phase (the second year of implementation), teachers from vocational schools, in collaboration with entrepreneurs and all other e-mobility experts, create new educational module as a supplement to existing curriculum in traffic and logistics, as well as innovative tools for the application of that module in education (tools for teaching and learning). The participants disseminate the project results by organizing seminars for teachers in transport and logistic, in their own country and surrounding ones, and to all public interested in this topic. In the third phase (the third year of implementation) the partner schools test newly created module and the associated tools for learning by applying it in their schools. The students go on mobility in partner schools and in that way evaluate the module. In addition, the students from 3 schools communicate with each other using the new tools and organize the final event of the project – the meetings of the owners of electric cars (in all 3 partner countries). The project will have a positive impact through the development of professional knowledge and competence in the field of e-mobility, the development of basic and transversal skills, vocational programs and the national curriculum modernization, improvement of teaching approach. The project will establish cooperation between European vocational schools in the field of transport and logistics and cooperation between vocational schools and the economy, thus creating conditions for better networking and exchange of experiences, good practice examples, the organization of vocational training and mobility for
