Our ASSESSMAKE21 Erasmus+ project virtual training (28-30.10.2021) has been successfully concluded.

On 28-30 September 2021, EDUMOTIVA- European Lab for Educational Technology organised the 3-days virtual training with the participation of all partners (Learnovate, Cyprus Interaction Lab, Karlstaad University and Dublin City University) and an amazing group of teachers, educators and makerspace facilitators from Ireland, Greece, Sweden and Cyprus.

The workshop targeted teachers and educators engaged with makerspaces, in formal and non-formal contexts. The aim of the training was to familiarize them with the Assessmake21 tool and help them build confidence in using it in their makerspace settings.

The training activity offered participants an opportunity to reflect upon makerspaces and the development of 21st century skills. Through the activity the need for tools to assess 21st century skills in makerspace contexts was highlighted and the ASSESSMAKE21 tool was presented as a response to this need. The training involved presentations , reflective tasks in break out rooms, demonstrations, and experience sharing sessions.

More than 30 people joined these 3 days virtual training! A big thank you to all the teachers and educators for their meaningful participation and insightful comments!

What’s next? We are soon off to pilots, where teachers and educators together with the young makers will use the Assessmake21 tool. An educational journey towards self-assessment and self-reflection upon 21st century skills begins very shortly! Stay tuned!
