Digital technologies affect our everyday life and have a huge impact on the labour-market and how people work. Even more jobs require specialised digital skills. Kosice Region and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County are facing the same challenges: there is a huge gap in the area of digital skills, the proportion of digitally illiterate people is high and the level of digital competences is low, outdated teaching methods exist and schools have insufficient digital infrastructure. Additionally, it can be realised that although the number of IT enterprises is quite high in both regions, but there is a significant “brain drain”, partly coming from the poor links between students and potential employers of the regions.
The main objective of the current project is to increase the digital competences and skills of the primary and secondary school students in Košice Region (KSK) and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County (B-A-Z). It will be reached through:
1. The establishment of an interactive classroom (1xSK).
2. Investment in digital infrastructure by purchasing of LEGO SPIKE Education sets and LEGO WeDo 2 sets for primary and secondary schools from Hungary and Slovakia, as an innovative form of IT education.
3. Organization of workshops and training for teachers in order to use LEGO sets actively during teaching process, thus enhancing their digital competences.
4. Organisation of robotics courses, competitions and summer camp for students.
The know-how conveyed to the teachers shall be persistent, the procured Lego kits shall serve the following generations. By connecting enterprises and primary/secondary schools, the project aims to provide practical education to the students, in line with the labor market requirements. The collaboration between schools established in the frame of the project will result-in a long-term sustainable cross-border cooperation.
