International Roadshow 2021
Digital Media in TVET | Realizing the goal-oriented use of ICT in TVET
In 2019, the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training in Germany (BIBB) initiated the International Roadshow “Digital Media in TVET”. The goal is to improve the understanding about the potential of technology-enhanced learning in TVET, and illustrate viable solutions for their sustainable integration into TVET teaching and learning practice worldwide.
The first edition of the international event format took place in Bangkok / Thailand in October 2019 and presented various digital technologies and their concrete application in TVET practice in Hong Kong, Mongolia, the Philippines and Germany.
The second edition was realized in cooperation with the BILT project and took place in the context of the virtual BILT Learning Forum, which was organized by UNESCO-UNEVOC and BIBB in December 2021. International TVET practitioners and experts had the chance to participate in virtual live presentations and discussions of practice examples from Hong Kong, Switzerland and South Africa. The project representatives shared their experiences of how technology-enhanced learning can be effectively planned and designed to achieve its intended goals and benefits.
Furthermore, BIBB has developed the BIBB Online Toolbox “Using Augmented and Virtual Reality in VET” as an additional offer in the context of the BIBB International Roadshow to highlight possible learning scenarios for using Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) in TVET. For this purpose, BIBB works with experts and partners from around the world to produce practical guidelines and identify international project examples. Additional materials and practice examples will be added continuously to the toolbox.
