The Future of self-Learn
As it is clearly stated that low-skilledness is a EU wide concern and the Council has developed the action plan accordingly, the self-Learn idea is valid EU-wide; also given the data by UNESCO, low-level skills of adults are impacting on world economy negatively. the self-Learn tool will be developed in partners’ languages during this 2 years pilot phase; then it will be extended to cover new EU (and/or World) languages, and also other PIAAC Levels (Level 3-4-5) in the next years based on the fact that the self-Learn tool is “extendable”; by adding up converted content in the new languages together with further content enrichment, in parallel to “expandable” feature of the tool. Since this will need relatively less financement, this is achievable by means of lower scale projects (even bilateral) or any other external/own funding, should the self-Learn create planned/desired/expected impact, resulting awareness, and in parallel draw attention for the further investment for new language versions.
As being a marathon project/idea, self-Learn; it plans to keep developing and diversifying the content, end users, and exploitation rates will be electronically measured and comparison of pre/post assessments will allow the visibility of the impact, on the end-users, especially during the short term. The target is that 70% of users to be able to upskill themselves as a short-term measure based on low-skilled adult testers during the testing phase of the project.
