The Cluster Meeting of the CRISS project has been held the past 14th of September in the UOC Rectoral building at Tibidabo.
The event brought together the academic, technical and the piloting partners with the aim to plan the piloting activities and coordinate the actions required for its fulfilment. The pilots of the Criss project will start in September 2018 and will involve 490 schools and 2260 teachers across Europe in the assessment of digital competences by means of the activities proposed by the CRISS platform.
The meeting has been also a good opportunity to discuss the methodology to design Competence Assessment Scenarios (CAS) addressed to learners, present the first version of the tool for its creation and tackle a lot of practical issues related to the preparation of the piloting.
Piloting partners agreed to create a first series of scenarios in English by November according to a set of guidelines provided by the Edul@b research group. The scenarios then will be translated in the partners’ local languages and made available in the CRISS platform.
Additional scenarios will be delivered by mid-January in order to increase the number of activities and ensure the evaluation of all the sub-competences included in the CRISS Operational Framework through them.
Over the next few weeks information about the school curricula of the piloting countries will be also collected by Fondazione Villa Montesca with the aim to define the most suitable topics for the scenarios, taking into account that the same integration activities should be carried out in schools of different countries.
Besides that, one of the next goals will be also to make the system support teachers in the selection of itineraries of scenarios to be proposed to students along the school year.
