DRONES@STEAM

Fostering digital Transformation in VET schools and creating new job prospects in the labour market

Target Groups

VET trainers/teachers & VET students.

Aim

Envourage VET students to pursue STEM related professions, equip them with relevant skills through DRONE technology.

Duration

March 2022 - June 2024

PROJECT AIMS

Drone technology stands out as fun and practical equipment for the contemporary classrooms, experiments, and exploration. Drone technology is a fascinating way to introduce students to STEM related professions, equip them with relevant skills and thus cover the gaps reported in the labour market to meet the new job creation arising. At the same time, it blends together all STEM fields such as maths and physics, electrical and mechanical engineering and computer science. It promotes other employability skills needed in the 21st century such as problem-solving, group work, leadership, creativity and initiative.

 

The key competences to be promoted as part of the project are:

  • high digital skills which appear to be missing from VET curricula and are currently needed to enter the labour market and be included in VET job profiles
  • targeted ‘wide and deep’ digital competences and the use of technologies leading to the 4.0 industry.
  • job specific VET related skills for various fields and sectors which are not offered as work-based learning opportunities or include danger or hazards for the workers.

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE PROJECT

Background

The widespread pandemic of COVID-19 has significantly interrupted the traditional training and education, as well as VET education, throughout Europe and the whole world. The current situation is forcing European educators to adapt in a short time interval towards digitising their classroom.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 are perhaps the most important drivers behind the profound transformation of the labour market, the way people work and the new digital skills required to meet the needs of the digitalised market. VET is valued for fostering job-specific and transversal skills, facilitating the transition into employment. Boosting digital skills at all levels helps increase growth and innovation and build a fairer, more cohesive, sustainable and inclusive society.
