The IntoDIGITS project was approved in September 2017, within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme under Key Action 2 (Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices).
This project builds on a previous successfully completed project, EMKIT. The aim of EMKIT was to empower low-skilled adults with the ultimate goal of achieving active citizenship. Through the toolkit developed by EMKIT, a trainer would have access to 35 different online and interactive tools (small workshops and activities). For each activity, the trainer has an interactive digital methodology describing the activity, the necessary sources and guidelines for the preparation and implementation of the activities.
Low-skilled workers were the hardest hit by the crisis, as their employment rate fell drastically (ECB report 138). One of the problems preventing the integration of low-skilled adults into the labour market is their lack of adequate training.
In Europe, there are few national public policies that focus on the skills of low-skilled and unemployed adults. Moreover, a survey conducted by the OECD (OECD2013-Adult Skills Survey) states that adults with low numeracy and digital skills have more health problems, lower income, self-confidence and are threatened by social exclusion.
IntoDIGITS aims to fill the skills gap for low-skilled adults in numeracy and digital literacy, by suggesting integrated approaches and providing a mix of skills for numeracy and digital literacy therefore responding to the exact needs of the target group.
The project suggests the empowerment of low skilled adults by developing 42 trainer’s digital tools for the implementation of innovative workshops & activities that develop the numeracy and digital skills.
The project brings together 6 partners from Greece, Spain, Poland, Cyprus, Germany and Italy, with expertise on the development of Qualification Frameworks and experience with work with low-skilled adults.
