E-­PORTFOLIOS INTRODUCTION TO PORFOLIO DIGITIZATION AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Training course
1-8 June 2013 | Kalamata, Peloponese, Greece
E-portfolios is an in-service Grundtvig training which aims to offer to the participants knowledge on the use of this ICT tool which can be used in Youth work & adult learning. Participants can obtain the 100% of the training costs from Grundtvig.
The specific Grundtvig seminar aims at guiding trainees to create, via a specific e-platform, their own electronic portfolios and be capable of adjusting them to their own and/or organization’s needs. As opposed to the classical portfolio enterprise defined by Stiggins (1994) as cited in Barrett (2005:4) “a collection of student work that demonstrates achievement or improvement” as well as the fact that “ a portfolio is a systematic and cumulative folder of learned material” (McLean, 1990: 78) through which the learner is not assessed only on the basis of a single performance but through a number of separate pieces of work produced over an extended period of time, the electronic portfolio as a means of alternative assessment to host trainees’ learning achievements seems to be a revolutionary assessing technique easily integrated into all learning environments.
All costs (accommodation, meals, tuition fees and travel expenses) will be fully covered by Lifelong Learning Programme the Grundtvig In-service training programme. 
The deadline to subscribe in this in - service training is 16th of January 2013There are three steps that you have to follow in order to apply and get 100% fund for your expenses. Those 3 steps are described in the attached file.

FORMAL EDUCATION MEETS NON FORMAL LEARNING, THE COMPETENCE BASED APPROACH


Training course
8-15 June 2013 | Kalamata, Peloponese, Greece
This is a training course which took place under Youth in Action program in November 2012 and due to its success, we are repeating it under the Grundtvig program. You can obtain the 100% of the travel, board &lodging and training costs from Grundtvig.
The issue of the competence-based approach is very important in Europe’s labor market today. As emphasized in the recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning (http://eurlex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/site/en/oj/2006/l_394/l_39420061230en00100018.pdf)
“As globalization continues to confront the European Union with new challenges, each citizen will need a wide range of key competences to adapt flexibly to a rapidly changing and highly interconnected world. Education in its dual role, both social and economic, has a key role to play in ensuring that Europe's citizens acquire the key competences needed to enable them to adapt flexibly to such changes”. 
In the same document, a European Reference Framework that identifies and defines the 8 key-competences for lifelong learning is given and this is the reference tool that will be used throughout this training course.
Skills acquired through Non-formal Learning (NFL) methodology are nowadays very much appreciated in almost all sections of personal and professional development. Many studies have shown that individuals who have additional, to their formal educational background, skills and competences have more opportunities to find a well paid job and continue their lifelong learning path.
The training course aims to:
- Train the participants in the methodology of NFL and to explore how NFL can be used within the framework of formal education and also as motivation for reintroducing the school drop outs to the educational system or the labour market.
- Introduce the participants to the 8 key-competences and to self assessment methods
- Explore and create new innovative educational tools/methodologies that can assist the participants in their efforts to help their target group to develop specific competences
- Provide tools for inclusion of learners with fewer opportunities
- Train the participants to create educational tools for their target group
All costs (accommodation, meals, tuition fees and travel expenses) will be fully covered by Lifelong Learning Programme the Grundtvig In-service training programme. The deadline to subscribe in this in - service training is 16th of January 2013There are three steps that you have to follow in order to apply and get 100% fund for your expenses. Those 3 steps are described in the attached file.

Κ.Α.ΝΕ., Social Youth Development, is a non governmental, non profit Organization (NGO) based in Kalamata, Greece.

Main motive of our organization is the social development of the Messinian prefecture, and the provision of opportunities to youngsters in order to enhance their horizons, to acquire new experiences and to be helped in their professional and social development.

As an accredited sending and coordinating organization for "European Voluntary Service" program, apart from the direct service to the local community that the “Youth in Action” offers, we consider E.V.S. as a useful “tool” in order to be given the motive in creating the feeling of community spirit, social responsibility and youth development, bringing renewal and change in that.

Βασικό κίνητρο του φορέα μας, είναι η κοινωνική ανάπτυξη της περιφέρειας Μεσσηνίας και η παροχή στους νέους αυτής, διεξόδων και ευκαιριών να διευρύνουν τους ορίζοντές τους, να αποκτήσουν νέες εμπειρίες και να βοηθηθούν στην επαγγελματική και κοινωνική σταδιοδρομία τους.

Ως εγγεκριμένος φορέας αποστολής και συντονιστικός φορέας για την "Ευρωπαϊκή Εθελοντική Υπηρεσία", εκτός από την άμεση προσφορά στην τοπική κοινωνία που προσφέρει το πρόγραμμα «Νεολαία σε Δράση», θεωρούμε την Ε.Ε.Υ. ως ένα χρήσιμο «εργαλείο» για να δοθεί το έναυσμα στην δημιουργία αισθήματος αλληλεγγύης, κοινωνικής ευθύνης και ανάπτυξης της νεολαίας, φέρνοντας την ανανέωση και αλλαγή σε αυτήν.
