TEACHERS AT ALL LEVELS
Teachers today should be sufficiently prepared to allow their students the opportunity to learn through technology. Schools have a duty to encourage students to understand these technologies and to avoid simply being passive consumers. Innovation in schools can be measured in terms of creative methodology and the capacity to react to social change. EIPASS supports this change with programmes dedicated to innovative teaching, available to teachers at all levels and in all types of schools.
EIPASS Junior is the certified programme for computer literacy aimed at children aged 7-13 years old. All of our students are able to use a PC, a smartphone, and the internet. In practice, at a relatively young age, they gain significant experience in the field. EIPASS Junior works with the student looking at what they already know how to do, turning experience into skills and, at the same time, making the student aware of the risks connected to improper use of digital technologies. Computer literacy is not an objective, but a method that allows students to strengthen their learning not only with regards to their ICT skills, but all of the interlinked disciplines, too.
Acquiring digital skills at school is the first step to bridging the gap between education and the world of work. This is confirmed by EU recommendations on school subjects, which make explicit reference to ‘enriching school curriculums by allowing students to acquire skills that are useful for the workplace’. The EIPASS IT certification is a qualification that can be used in the workplace and for applications, as well as at school and University.
Digital innovation is contributing to the redesign of the workplace. According to many University students, digital skills are important in finding a job. This is confirmed by the majority of HR managers that consider these skills to be essential (51%) or very important (43%). All of the EIPASS certifications are in line with the european standards for digital skills (e-Competence Framework for ICT Users and DigComp), catering for the international mobility of University students.
