This project follows a train-the-trainer and qualify-the-users approach. It sets out to develop and implement training programmes for staff in non-formal learning settings such as Public Libraries, community centres and care centres. Once they are trained, these staff members will enable new users of the Internet to develop skills and knowledge needed to make full and safe use of the World Wide Web as both users of content and creators of online content.

With DLit2.0 we aim to...

  • enable adult education staff in Europe for the provision of ICT-Training courses.
  • enable learning distant adults to make use of Web 2.0 for acquiring knowledge and participating in social life in an autonomous, confident and critical manner.
  • promote the key competence Digital Literacy for continuing education among poorly educated adults.
  • encourage and stimulate collaboration between educational and social organisations and promote professional exchange and cooperation on European level in lifelong learning for marginalised and disadvantaged citizens in general.
  • enhance the use of ICT for lifelong learning.
  • stimulate the dialogue on the training of the trainers in non-formal and informal education in Europe.

We will work towards these aims by implementing a two-step strategy based on a structured curriculum and learning materials which can be used in non-formal learning settings.
