I-LINC aims to develop a sustainable and all encompassing platform on the topic of ICT (for) learning and inclusion. The I-LINC platform will be an online environment for networking; participation and learning that will focus on boosting the employability and entrepreneurship capacities of young people.
The project will benefit and gather existing platforms, networks and resources that are available on the topic of ICT (for) learning and inclusion. The project will also develop an active community of stakeholders in the field while linking them to the main beneficiaries – young people.
Expected results are:
- Develop a wide and active community of stakeholders, aspiring to become a reference point in the long run in the field of ICT (for) learning and inclusion
- Link existing stakeholders’ activities in the field of ICT (for) learning and inclusion and join them in order to increase their impact both on policy-maker and end-user level
- Contribute to the improvement of existing platforms by creating a common (blended) space for open dialogue and meetings, and foster active mutual exchanges and peer-learning activities
- Define directions on how to improve tools and services for the modernisation of education and training and the employability of young people while tackling the risk of digital and socio-economic exclusion (i.e. e-inclusion).
