Building a generic model of urban ecosystems of learning, based on case studies in 5 European cities: Munich, Kallithea, Bucharest, Valencia and Dublin. The model will make visible the different layers and networks making the learning ecosystem of a city, and showing how both local and digital learning resources can be integrated into the broader concept of connected learning. The challenge of the partnership will be to bring into the picture local issues, recognizing the critical role of technology-enhanced learning, supporting not only interactions with others around the world, but also with people and organisations nearby.
Piloting scenarios for city-wide learning, each of which is covering a specific set of citizen needs in the 21st century, such as
- Citizenship in our local and global society
- Health and sustainable lifestyle
- Becoming makers of the knowledge society
- Personal and professional advancement
In Dublin, we will be examining some of these scenarios associated with citizenship, specifically from the perspective of how we can build stronger and more active communities.
One such group is talking about how we can use the arts to assist in this ambition. Check it out below
It will be interesting for us to continue to look at the work of our colleagues in other European cities to see how they progress their own learning models.
