Within the framework of the Erasmus + Key Action 1: Learning Mobility of Individuals programme, CARNet concluded a contract on grant allocation for a two-year project under the title “Development of Digitally Mature Schools – CARNet Capacity Building in the Field of Research and use of ICT in Teaching and Learning”.
Erasmus + is the most comprehensive European Union programme in the field of education, training, youth and sports, designed for stimulating the improvement of skills and employability, as well as for supporting the modernisation of the systems relating to education, training and youth. One of the main three programme objectives of Erasmus + is the allocation of funds to individuals for the purpose of their studying abroad, in or outside of the EU.
Erasmus + offers the possibility of international mobility for individuals and international cooperation for organisations, however, the interested individuals must apply via their institutions.
Approved within the framework of the project “Development of Digitally Mature Schools – CARNet Capacity Building in the Field of Research and Use of ICT in Teaching and Learning”, are four types of mobility for CARNet employees and a total contract amount of 8,467.00 euro, which includes three structured courses and one work observation in an adult education organisation (job shadowing). The project lasts from 31 December 2015 – 31 December 2017, when the realisation of the four types of mobility and the dissemination of the project outcome and results is planned.
The target groups of the CARNet mobility project are elementary and secondary school teachers in the Republic of Croatia, school principals and expert co-workers, as well as employees of the public institutions within the educational system, whose competences will be developed by the participants of this project, after the realisation of mobility. Through the building of capacities of the participants of this project and the dissemination of the project outcomes and results through a series of organised educational activities for the target group, one of the primary objectives of the Erasmus + programme – increasing the number of adults in lifelong learning – will be achieved.
