Informal and Non-Formal E-Learning for Cultural Heritage

Description du projet

Un cadre européen innovant et intégratif pour l’éducation

La méthode traditionnelle d’enseignement est restée longtemps inchangée et, dans de nombreux cas, elle s’avère dépassée par la réalité d’aujourd’hui. La pandémie de COVID-19 pourrait être le moment idéal pour développer des méthodes d’apprentissage nouvelles, efficaces et beaucoup plus créatives. Il est en effet important d’élargir l’offre d’apprentissage dans ses dimensions à la fois formelles et informelles. Le projet xFORMAL, financé par l’UE, entend établir un nouveau cadre dédié au patrimoine européen commun s’appuyant sur la science et la technologie augmentée, dans lequel les citoyens de tout âge pourront apprendre de manière à la fois intégrative et informelle. Reposant sur l’approche de l’apprentissage autodéterminé, il permettra la mise en place d’une forme d’éducation innovante, moderne, améliorée et durable ayant des effets à vie, grâce à l’engagement des communautés locales et au partage mutuel des connaissances.

Objectif

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of all formal learning settings. This is a good time to expand opportunities in non-formal and informal settings. xFORMAL project aims at creating a framework in which science and technology meet citizens of all ages in an informal intergenerational educational setting, based on a platform and a game devoted to the common European cultural heritage. The key ingredients of the project are: the history of ancient Europe (partly taught in formal education), the landscape (typically, a non-formal learning base), the heutagogic approach, the virtual/augmented reality (generally recognised as an informal-learning tool), and the sharing of knowledge and experiences between SSH and ICT researchers in an intersectoral setting. The proposed actions target the creation of new partnerships in local communities to foster improved education for all citizens following the heutagogy approach. This project aims at supporting a range of research, dissemination and exploitation activities based on collaboration between educational providers, associations, enterprises, and civil society in order to become an agent of community well-being; encourage families to become real partners in educational life and activities; actively involve professionals from enterprises and civil and wider society in bringing real-life projects to the civil society; and encourage policymakers to the mainstream of good practices and insights into policies, and hence sustainability and impact beyond the lifetime of funding. It is expected that in the short term the development of xFORMAL partnerships between academic and non-academic institutions will contribute to a more scientifically interested and literate society and citizens of all ages with a better awareness of and interest in a cultural common heritage. In the long-term, it will contribute towards ERA objectives of increasing the number of scientists.
