DigiCulTS – second newsletter

We would like to welcome you to the second edition of the DigiCulTS newsletter.


The DigiCulTS partners are carrying out research in Austria, Greece, Poland, and Spain to find digital competences that are crucial for SMEs. Our starting point in the first phase of our research was the comparison between criteria, parameters and frameworks already employed for identifying digital competences.

We have already started envisaging and preparing the structure of the DigiCulTS training provision for SMEs, which will respond to their needs as identified in the research. Placing at the center of learning the persons who make things happen in SMEs everyday life, we will use the ‘persona approach’ as an element which determines the learning course design.

Check out this persona example! https://isabellgru.eu/index.php/2020/06/30/writing-personas-for-curriculum-and-course-design/?fbclid=IwAR1q0Ci-mHQOy7GMfOxySPlOTY2p7OMcwjaoGBmatvxLGk2RMqINWb-9seI

The development of the curriculum aims at a very flexible, modular structure. Possible delivery modes for online courses will be matched with the needs of the Target Group.

What are the consequences of digital technologies in our professional life?

SMEs are challenged by the “Digital Revolution” in a very specific way: on the one hand new technologies offer new business opportunities and on the other hand lots of SMEs have a lack to make the most of digital technologies.

Digital technologies shape our everyday life. They change our concepts of the individual, of reality, time, the possibility of representation as well as the archives of memory. They influence our attitude to hierarchies, community, transparency and work life balance.

Stay tuned and follow our Hashtag #digicults on facebook, linkedin, twitter and instagram. The project partners will keep you posted on their national developments and progress, in national languages and/or in English.
