M-Easy – Make Maths Manageable!
According to OECD’s PISA study (2012) 19% of Austrian school leavers are low achievers in mathematics (EU-28: 22%). The Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC), conducted in 2014-2015, reveals that 25% of Austrian adults have deficits in problem-solving in technology-rich environments. The new project M-Easy tackles this challenge and the current lack of maths training offers for low-skilled adults.
The project, coordinated by the Lithuanian Social Innovation Fund, will supply high quality e-learning and mobile learning opportunities for improving basic mathematical skills of low-skilled adults, including refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. Local communities will be sensitized about the importance of this kind of educational support through information and capacity building events.
M-Easy has just started with a kick-off meeting in Rzeszow, Poland. In the evaluator’s role die Berater® will bring in their expertise as provider of education and training of people with low levels qualification, with media production and with quality assurance of EU projects.
