PR1 will consist of a formal system of competences necessary for effectively integrating adolescents’ career development in Teacher Education.
Preparing for one’s vocational future is considered one of the core developmental tasks in adolescence and EU countries have recognized the importance of assisting adolescents in successful career preparation (OECD, 2004). Teachers have a key role in pupils’ career choice.
The PR1 will give methodological landmarks that can be useful to teachers for enhancing adolescents’ career development. Furthermore, useful guidelines for an innovative and inclusive methodology to enhance the teaching for the teachers (in HEI) to adolescents’ career development will be delivered. The innovative aspect is the creation of a framework of early NEET prevention empowered by technology. The teachers will learn through technology (MOOC, PR2), and at the same time, they will use supportive technology (BOX, PR3) in their classroom. In this sense, the framework will include enhancing the vision of the future of adolescents with a new methodology based on the TUI paradigm, thus concrete manipulation of objects with multimedia feedback. The theoretical framework will be organized according to the following dimensions:
The partnership will deliver an ad hoc framework that benefits from existing theories specifically for Teacher Education. Moreover, the framework will also provide the technological and methodological framework to improve these dimensions.
The framework will be documented in a professionally designed handbook available in six languages (English, Greek, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch). The framework will be published in scientific publication to reach the research and policy communities. The report will be organized according to the following dimensions:
The report is an open text and offers a new perspective on the innovation in HE courses. We can be a useful early strategy to contrast the NEET phenomenon and school drop-out problems and facilitate educational transitions (middle school to high school) and future school-to-work transition.
The NEET phenomenon is an urgent problem that characterizes Europe’s whole and requires strong contrast measures. Teachers must be trained to encourage early prevention in the education system. This approach will be designed for transferability across EU.
