Project number: 2020-1-BG01-KA201-079100
Implementation period: 01-10-2020 – 31.03.2022
The ECOLES project sets out to stimulate and improve students’ economic, consumer literacy, raise the level of achievement of basic skills (literacy, numeracy and basic digital skills) and awareness on their rights as European consumers, and in parallel to provide trainers and teachers of various related disciplines with effective tools to convey important messages and concepts of the market. Thus the project will design, develop, pilot and disseminate training materials and a virtual consumer game for use on behalf of various target groups and for different ages (7-18 years old).
The innovation of the project lies in the fact that that it provides useful and easy to use tools for students and trainers/teachers so as to be able to improve knowledge on economic and consumer related issues combine the “game” experience with a set of proposed exercises and approaches for enhanced results. The educational material will also target a new age group 7-18 year old pupils for which such material is not yet widely available. Also, the ECOLES virtual consumer manager will provide a challenging and entertaining learning environment that enables a self-guided learning process.
The main target group the project is addressing are pupils 7-18 year old, school teachers/trainers on consumer issues, school leaders. The aforementioned target group will play key role of the project.
