About the project

The project "How to Trigger Primary Motivation for Learning in Low Educated Adults Using ICT Tools" is meant to empower adult educators offering them and constructing with them knowledge and skills needed for working with low- educated and low-skilled adult learners wanting to trigger their primary motivation for learning.
To this end, different motivational strategies, methods and techniques have been surveyed, collected, and offered to adult educators, who have tested and evaluated them in adult educational centres in their respective countries.

Additionally, wanting to make these tools accessible to an international audience, an open educational platform has been created comprising interactive resources for adult educators and other practitioners. It includes literature and references on literacy, motivation, learning and teaching strategies in partners’ languages; a survey of best practices in the field of basic skills teaching for adult learners; an online interactive handbook of already existing motivational strategies used by adult educators working with low-educated and low-skilled adult learners.
The ultimate goal of the project was to elaborate an online learning environment and thus upgrade adult educators’ professional competencies, i.e. knowledge, learning and teaching strategies, face-to- face and on-line methods and formats (webinars) and techniques helping adult educators to train low educated and low skilled 45+ workers as well as trigger and maintain their primary motivation for learning. Moreover, the project has fostered and provided grounds for highly professional national and cross-border cooperation in the field of adult educators’ professional competencies and their learning.
