PERSONALIZED DIGITAL COURSE FOR LABOR TRAINING IN A TECHNOLOGICAL CENTER
The personalized digital course consist of an innovative structured virtual course specifically aimed at students developing specifically the competences of the VET training curriculum related to the digital and technological field, as well as the skills that will be required in the workplace where they perform their mobility.
The main objective is to enable students to have the skills required to take over some function in innovation projects, as well as develop critical thinking and transversal competencies that guarantee their social inclusion.
If it is used by a VET student who does not participate in the mobility of the network, it will show training contents for employability in technological centers, compatible with the educational itinerary of Vocational Training of the partner countries, enhancing their capacity for critical thinking and the skills that will be required in these companies.
If the user is going to make a mobility within the TRAINING PROGRAM IN HIGH TECHNOLOGY WORK CENTERS, then it will generate an individualized training itinerary adapted to the job chosen to perform the mobility.
METHODOLOGY: THE MICROLEARNING
Microlearning is a holistic approach for skill based learning and education which deals with relatively small learning units. … It involves short-term-focused strategies especially designed for skill based understanding/learning/education.
This methodolgy will allow to the student, specially if he/she has obstacles or special needs, to adapt the calendar of study to their other responsabilities. Is a good method to development the technical and labour competences, but also the scientific and critical thinking, because depends directly of the student participation. She is the main character, and who must build her own knowledge in a process guided by the tutor.
Because is a elearing education, the student will develop her digital competences and can make a pill by her movil while waiting for the bus, on a break from her VET course, on trips …
This result raises an adapted learning, which builds the contents according to the specific needs of the user, but above all adapting them to the needs of the workplace where they will carry out their long-term mobility. This training course will be structured around a DIDACTIC PROGRAMMING with the following sections:
2. MOTIVATION. GOALS. CONTENTS
3. METHODOLOGY: MICROLEARNING
4.1. BASIC SKILLS OF CRITICAL THINKING
4.2. SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL SKILLS
5. CONTENTS AND MICRO-PILLS
5.1. CONTENTS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF CRITICAL THINKING
For each unit, the competencies that the student must have in order to access the technology sector will be specified, building a number of fundamental transversal competences to motivate, develop self-confidence and the inclusion of users, as well as foster critical critical thinking to work in the scientific field.

5.2 SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL CONTENTS
The contents of this didactic program will be created through the compilation of materials generated by the participating teachers and experts or collaborators that will promote the development of certain skills in VET students. It will group a broad spectrum of knowledge that will allow, based on their initial knowledge, their needs and objectives, to achieve the selection of the most appropriate Teaching Units shaping a specific itinerary.

5.3. SPECIFIC CONTENTS. PROPOSALS OF THE CENTERS THAT WILL RECEIVE VET STUDENTS
If the student is going to participate in a long-term mobility in a technological center of the network, the course will be extended with a specific Didactic Unit for the training of the student for the job and the company where the mobility will be carried out.
