The context

One of the features of the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme concerns the inclusion of learning mobility schemes specifically addressed to students in general education. However, this new category of learning mobility activities requires new competences from school staff, as well as tools and methodologies to plan and implement the mobility projects.

For these reasons, there is a particular need to improve the skills of upper secondary school teachers on pupil mobility projects (design, planning, management) and their preparation for the use of new technologies for the implementation of internationalisation@ home activities, which allow the creation of joint educational activities among European students.

Project idea

In this context, the KA2 Mob@act project aims to develop and improve shared methodologies related to the planning and management of learning mobility projects in response to the opportunities introduced by the new Erasmus+ program, promoting physical, virtual and blended mobility.

Target group

The Mob@act project will address the upper secondary schools staff and headmasters, whose participation will provide a comprehensive point of view on the themes of the project which is complementary to the more practical perspective of teachers. Students will also be involved in the mobilities generated by this project and also in the testing of the E-learning course.

Staff of other upper secondary schools that are not included in the partnership will be invited to participate in joint staff training events and will be targeted by dissemination activities, as well as civil servants, policy makers and local community representatives acting in the field of education and youth policies.

Project objectives

The general objective of the project is to improve the European dimension of general education and set the ground for shared methodologies related to students’ physical, blended and virtual mobility experiences.

The three specific objectives are:

  1. Promote upskilling schools staff in the internationalisation of education with particular regards to pupils’ learning mobility;
  2. Support the introduction of learning methodologies based on the emerging technologies to foster the development of key competences pupils involved in learning mobility projects as well as for no mobile students (internationalisation at home);

Encourage processes of recognition and validation of pupils’ study periods abroad.
