Final products/Results


The project responds to the need to foster access to the information and communication technologies (ICTs) and to adult basic education (ABE) for those groups in society with lower levels of formal education and at high risk of social exclusion. To this aim the project will contribute to developing the educational application of ICTs within ABE.


The international team will produce a virtual environment specialized in ABE which will include seven ABE virtual campuses and a common space. This European virtual ABE community will contribute to the adaptation of ABE to the new needs of the knowledge society. This virtual environment and its contents will be developed in co-operation with ABE learners/participants, ABE professionals and experts in the educational applications of ICTs. A process of validation of the campuses and its analysis will provide a new understanding of the initial impact of the use of ICTs in ABE.
The project also includes activities to foster public debate on the use of ICTs in ABE such as Public Celebrations, Debates or Weeks of the ICTs in ABE.
The main objectives of the project are:
  1. To improve understanding of the impact of ICT on ABE, concretely, on
    1. the organisation of teaching/learning needs,
    2. the promotion of a more participatory role of all parties involved (above all the adult learners themselves) in the organisation and planning of the education provision,
    3. collaborative and communicative learning based on NICT,
    4. multicultural co-operation and cultural awareness,
    5. the evolution of the role of the teachers and other professionals in adult education,
    6. the learning processes and
    7. fostering access to NICT and to distance learning of social groups, which face greater difficulties to participate in cultural and educational opportunities.
  2. To develop a virtual adult basic education community (4 virtual campus for ABE) at European level combining on-site education facilities with distance and open learning through NICT.
  3. To contribute to the creation of a European area of lifelong learning in which adult basic education is included as a strategy to include the disadvantaged groups.
  4. To use the NICT to achieve the goal of quality education for all.
