ON YOUR SIDE: VIRTUAL ASSISTANT FOR EUROPEAN MOBILITIES IN TECHNOLOGICAL CENTERS

DESCRIPTION

A digital educational software that will accompany the VET student at risk of exclusion during the entire mobility process. From the moment the student considers participating in European mobility until the moment it is evaluated as a success by his teacher at the VET center.

This digital environment will contain all the useful information for students who want to do mobilities in the technology sector and its main objective is to provide a support service to students with obstacles.

OBJECTIVES

This result will allow the student to feel protected during their mobility, find resources that help them when they have problems and feel that their teacher and their tutor are with them.

Learn about the various centers where you can access mobility and what opportunities they offer you, as well as the culture of the region and linguistic tools.

This assistant will also allow them to implement collaborative networking, essential to achieve the objectives of their mobility with all students in the network who are in a situation like theirs.

The content of the application will be divided into a public part for all those who want to download the application and a private, personalized part, for those students who carry out mobility in research centers and technology-based companies.

PUBLIC PART:

Access to the public part will guarantee the user the following tools / resources:

— SUPPORT SERVICES IN LABOR PRACTICES IN THE TECHNOLOGICAL SECTOR.

This section is devoted to the presentation of the European network of participating technology centers and VET centers.

It will have a map with the member entities throughout Europe participating in the mobilities. Selecting each of the entities that appear in the mapping will find:
• Brief description of each of them.
• Goals.
• Characteristics and projects.
• Work profile.
• Web page.
• Specific contact information.

— SUPPORT SERVICES FOR MOBILITIES IN THE E + PROGRAM.

This section will have specific resources to favor the participation of students in European mobility (whether or not they belong to the network of technology centers) stating the benefits of this type of international practice and providing the information and access to them. It will be connected to the resources and materials offered by the E + Program and backed by materials and its own guide.

SERVICES FOR THE SOCIAL INTEGRATION OF STUDENTS IN EUROPE.

This section will contain information about the culture and languages ​​of the regions where the participating technology centers are located. This will allow the student to know the identifying features of each of these places, facilitating their integration when they arrive, but also promoting the value of European diversity, tolerance and heritage while improving their intercultural awareness and active citizenship.

— LANGUAGE SUPPORT SERVICES.

It will provide ICT tools to facilitate communication in the language of the host country or in English such as translation plug-ins, linguistic proof readers, training materials, etc.

PRIVATE PART:

The private part will have a common structure but its contents will be adapted according to the user’s host technology center. If you do not have an assigned center, a more general content will appear.
The private part will have three fundamental tools:

— THE LABORATORY NOTEBOOK.
A space where the student must complete the laboratory notebook that will serve, not only to structure their practices, but to evaluate them. Once completed, it will be sent to the company tutor, the Ikasia tutor and the student’s teacher in a format compatible with ECVET credits and with the final mobility report that the teacher must create to validate the practice.

— UP SERVICE AND COLLABORATIVE WORK.

This software will contain dynamic resources for communication not only between the tutor of the VET center, but also with the person responsible for the student in the workplace and with the students of the program who are doing mobility in other technology centers . This will allow to promote the exchange of good practices and a collaborative methodology among the participants so that they help each other, generate bonds of solidarity and feel accompanied.

— SUPPORT SERVICES IN LABOR PRACTICES IN THE TECHNOLOGICAL SECTOR.

This section will contain resources specific to the workplace that welcomes the student, with documents about the objectives, characteristics and definition of the job that VET students can fill.
Specific training materials related to the contents of the company will be provided.
