The DEPAL project supports educators to better motivate their adult learners and improve their use of digital technologies.
The aim of the project is to impact on the wider adult education sector, promoting thinking about how to make adult education engaging and meaningful and increasing the practice of good digital learning. The project will better prepare marginalised adult learners to take fuller role as 21st century global citizens.
It will directly reach 400 educators across the UK, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain, and create a high-profile educational platform to reach many more. These educators will facilitate ‘Digital Photo Stories’ projects with over adult 2000 learners. This will create a bridging of participatory education with new digital learning. The results of this project will be shared with formal adult education institutions and 2000 educators, and more broadly contribute to understanding of educator competencies.
