DECODE 1st Multiplier Event “Innovation and Training in the Digital Era”
Partners were in attendance in Bradford, UK in June for the first project Multiplier Event. The event was held in the historic City House and brought together trainers, decision makers and school leaders to discuss digital innovation in the classroom.
As well as a project update from Stefania Capogna from Link Campus University, the two keynote presentations were given by Jo Dye, Director of Learning at aspire-igen and Steve Dale, an Education Consultant at the Bradford innovation Centre. Both speakers focussed on how all staff working with young people can embrace digital tools to enhance their work, with Jo setting out aspire2work’s current digitalisation journey, whilst Steve focussed on the impact which apps etc. can have on young people’s learning.
The project partners also presented best practices from their own countries to help demonstrate different ways of tackling the challenges of the digital classroom.
Attendees commented that this transnational approach was extremely beneficial, as it was reassuring to see that people elsewhere in Europe faced similar problems and inspiring to learn about new innovative ways of using digital tools to engage with young people.
