It will soon begin the European project Demonstration of a scalable and cost effective cloud-based digital learning infrastructure through the Certification of digital competences in primary and secondary schools (CRISS), coordinated by the British organisation EXUS Software LTD and in which the Edul@b group participates.
CRISS aims to provide an innovation infrastructure for personalized learning and teaching of digital competences to support and motivate teachers and students; work towards the implementation of digital competences acquisition, evaluation and certification in European primary and secondary schools; and provide open, interoperable components for a flexible, scalable and cost-effective cloud-based digital learning infrastructure.
The CRISS project involucres more than 490 schools including 25.400 students and 2.290 teachers around Europe. CRISS operation is based on a theoretical and methodological framework that defines digital competences in different dimensions and the procedures for their acquisition and evaluation through personalised, adaptive, collaborative and experimental learning tools. In addition, this framework sets up the indicators needed to identify personalised progress in acquiring digital skills.
