»Accessible Language Learning«offers
new ways of language learning for blind and visually impaired people.
The combination of force feedback devices and 3D-Sound navigation
offers an alternative user interface for self-learning software that
does not require a screenreader and provides true interactivity with
the PC. This technology is then used for a language course "English
for German learners" and "German
for English learners" that
concentrates on communicative listening and speaking skills.
was an European project (Sept 2009 – Sept. 2011) which was directed
towards SMEs working in the sector of Tourism. The aim of BenchTour was
to enhance the competences of SMEs by introducing a successfully tested
method called "Bencheffect®". This method that was developed within an
EQUAL project, increases the employability of workers and supports the
competitiveness of enterprises.

adult education we usually pay attention to the teaching content and
the competence of tutors and trainers. Quality is defined by different
aspects such as different methods, competency of trainers, variety of
content and the success of the students. Nevertheless, with the
exception of the statutory Health & Safety regulations, aspects
promoting and preserving health are usually not an issue for individual
adult education institutions. Thus we have the aim of developing a
concept which enables an educational institution to implement
corresponding changes to improve the concentration and receptivity of
students, to strengthen their capacity and joy of learning, to reduce
sickness and to enhance their integration into the labour market. To
achieve this aim the intention is to create a ‘Health Tutor’ from the
existing teaching staff of the college who would oversee all matters
relevant to this project. Training for this work will be available
under the project with funding available from EU sources.
project is working to improve SME productivity and growth by improving
awareness of the importance of sustainable workplace learning.
Competiveness is a significant factor for SMEs (small and medium-sized
enterprises) to sustain their position in the market. Healthy and well
trained employees are vital for maintaining competiveness. Therefore,
the objective of our project “HLS – healthy learning in SMEs” is to
raise awareness with employers and employees of the importance of
creating a workplace environment that supports health and learning in
significant problems, which are apparent in North East Brandenburg, are
unemployment as a result of a lack of formally recognized
qualifications on the one hand and a lack of skilled employees on the
other. It is the aim of this project
"Integra 2010" to
directly connect these factors in order to produce a win-win situation
for both sides.
Garden - Development and testing of a cross-border training of
educators with the goal of introducing foreign language teaching in
early childhood in the nurseries of the region. The Interreg IV A
project Langar qualified professionals from the nurseries of the
German-Polish Viadrina Euro Pro region, so that staff could carry out
child-friendly policies to promote foreign language skills and
intercultural competence in the "little learners".
"on the job
training" approach foreducational professionals empowered the employees
to promote the language and the culture of the neighboring country
systematicly and suitable for children. The Langar Project is aimed
directly at professionals who encourage bilingualism in nurseries in a
playful yet professional and sustainable way and thus indirectly
prepare preschoolers for learning a foreign language.
a context of increased urbanization of society, of climate and
environmental change and in a context of globalisation and a growing
relevance of forests there is a ever but greater need for a sound
comprehension of the multiple dimensions of forest and forestry. Forest
pedagogics or "Waldpädagogik" is a priority area for developing a
shared comprehension of forests and their role in helping to solve the
enormous challenges we are currently facing.
and Inclusion - Promoting Language Teaching for All. New ways in
vocational language learning for blind and visually impaired people.
order to achieve better language learning opportunities for VIPs, and
given that English is a language of universal importance, the decision
was made to develop English training modules for blind and visually
impaired adult learners. It was also decided that the training
technology developed in the Socrates ALLVIP project - a force-feedback
joystick for haptic feedback- could be central to enabling VIPs to
carry out necessary language exercises. One of the aims of the project
is to produce adaptable computer-based training modules for business
English designed for blind and visually impaired adult learners, using
the above technology.
addition, since one of the major challenges
is to find qualified language teachers capable of teaching VIPs, the
project aims is to produce a training framework for existing qualified
language teachers giving them the skills necessary to integrate VIPs
into their language classes.
projects aimed not only the placement of young people in work, but also
the development and expansion of social skills that promote
communication, language and spelling skills by addressing specific
issues and people's self-assessment of their skills, increase the
confidence and the support in the construction of personal, social and
economic networks that increase the chances of a job.
