Maria Grandl from the Graz University of Technology will present a paper and a poster which is a cooperational work with DOIT (and me :o)) at the 11th of October in Athens. ❤
Veronika Hornung-Prähauser and DOIT colleagues from Salzburg Research and Lappeenranta University of Technology wrote a paper about DOIT’s social innovation training for the ISPIM conference 2018. It got published now.
We did a publication about „Practical Usage of OER Material in the EFL Classroom“ and give an overview about daily barriers when you try to use OER in classrooms. The findings are for sure interesting.
In this research work, we want to follow the idea of using open educational resources (OER) in a classroom to gather practical experiences. The topic of our choice is English as a foreign language (EFL), because in our opinion a lot of teaching content should be available. The preparation of the lectures, as well as the final lecturing, is described to understand how OER can be used in the EFL classroom. The feedback of the pupils and the lessons learned point out that there are more obstacles than expected, mainly because of the strict copyright law in German-speaking Europe.

At this year ED-Media conference in Amsterdam we start with a workshop on „Making With Kids in Europe – To Foster Digital Literacy, to Make a Better World, and to Build a New Entrepreneurship Education“ where we like to introduce to our activities.
Some of Europe’s leading experts on making with children will share their experiences and different approaches within this joint workshop The workshop will include presentations about teacher education within makerspaces at the University of Technologies Graz (AT), about inspiring social innovation and educational projects at the Waag Society (NL) and about the European initiative DOIT, which sees making as a good base for an early entrepreneurship education. Participants will work with a set of tools and smaller maker projects. For example, they can program educational games in Scratch, build a dough piano (which will do music!) with a MaKeyMaKey set, or sew some “smart gloves”. Interactive discussions will be the base to develop own future implementations.
Find here the slides and workshop hand-outs at DOIT’s website.

Within the first week of March 2018, the project team of the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework published – with a contribution of DOIT! (this posting was originally published at the DOIT homepage :-))
From the abstract:
EntreComp into Action is a guide for those individuals and organisations who want to use EntreComp, the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework, to foster entrepreneurial learning. It illustrates the breadth and depth of potential for using EntreComp to meet different goals and aims to inspire more actors across Europe and beyond to use it as reference.
DOIT contributed to this guide as well, please have a look at the screenshots of our contribution (not available under CC BY, but under similar conditions, see the reuse policy of European Commission documents is regulated by Decision 2011/833/EU (OJ L 330, 14.12.2011, p. 39).
