Erasmus+ Project No. 2019-1-MT01-KA202-051203 funded by EUPA Malta
A digital VET toolkit for promoting the 4th Industrial Revolution in the European health sector
The main aim of this Project called digi4HEALTH (A Digital VET Toolkit for Promoting the 4th Industrial Revolution in the European Health Sector) is to develop a novel digital toolkit by which European VET Trainers and health sector mentors can reach out and assist healthcare professionals and stakeholders to catch up with technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution. To achieve this aim, the following objectives have been set to address the following target groups:
OB1: To develop a Curriculum targeted at healthcare personnel to learn about Health 4.0 and its underlying technologies;
OB2: To develop twelve case-studies portraying how different technologies can be used in a Health 4.0 environment
OB3: To develop an e-Learning platform explicitly on Health4.0 and its underlying technologies
OB4: To develop an innovative, open digital VET trainers toolkit integrating a set of resources including case-studies, fact sheets & presentations
OB5: To evaluate the digi4HEALVET toolkit with a set of health care professionals in one of the partner countries
OB6: To disseminate & exploit the digi4Health project results.
As its audience, the DIGI4HEALTH project will address the following target groups:
TG1: The primary Target group consists of EU VET trainers and healthcare mentors
TG2: The secondary target group consists of Healthcare personnel
TG3: The third group consists of VET learners
The digi4HEALTH project partners have been chosen in such a way as to ensure a good balance between experts in VET pedagogy, second chance training/learning, work-based training, curriculum development, industry 4.0 technologies as well as stakeholders from the informal VET sector and partners with a strong link to healthcare sector. digi4HEALTH thus brings together a number of European entities ranging from VET/HEI Training Institutions, private digital technology service providers, science/knowledge incubators, healthcare technology providers to collectively develop the digi4HEALTH VET toolkit, targeted at engaging health care personnel to acquire knowledge and skills on a range of Health4.0 digital technologies. For more information about the consortium partners, please visit the digi4HEALTH project website here.
To achieve its goal, the Digi4Health partners will be developing over a 24 month period, the following main results. These deliverables are being made freely available to the public. Further below you will also have a video overview by different partners of how the VITA project and its results impacted their organisation.
IO1: Training Needs report
The VITA consortium compiled a report of focused group meetings held, through which it established trends in the digital training needs of adults in the partner countries: Czech Republic, Greece, Malta and Romania.
IO5 : Six VR/AR Based Case-studies for Adult Life Skills
This output consits of a number of running demos of VAR case-studies that can be used by adult learners and trainers. In reality, the VITA partners have found the case-studies so relevant for reaching to the project's target audience that a total of 13 AR and 6 VR case -studies were developed and not just six as originally planned. The case-studies are available for download and trial in the VITA Toolbox repository.
IO6 : e-Learning Content on VAR Technology for Adult Trainers of 21st Century Digital Skills
This output consists of course content presented on an e-Learning platform with relevant content for guiding Adult Trainers on how to exploit VAR technology for attracting and engaging adult learners to acquire 21st Century Skills and in particular digital literacy. The e-learning content ha been implemented in English, Romanian, Greek & Czech languages can be seen over here.
IO7 : VAR-Based Adult Trainers Toolbox
This output is a digital VAR-based training toolbox for use by Adult education stakeholders to attract and train adults in 'basic digital skills' which are considered as one of the 21st Century life skills. The aim of the Toolbox is to help adult trainers make second chance learning more friendly and less threatening to adults that want to catch up.
