- Trans e-Facilitator – Leonardo Transfer of Innovation (CE)
The core idea of the project (running from october 2012 to september 2014) is an innovation transfer of a curriculum for e-facilitators working in telecentres which has been developed in the Leonardo da Vinci project "European Vocational Education and Training Solution for e-Inclusion facilitators (VET4e-I), combined with its social and formal recognition in European and national qualification frameworks.
The curriculum "VET4e-I" with its ten modules so far and its training materials shows a special trademark by not addressing technical and ICT competences of e-facilitators exclusively, but by providing aspects of community management and other social skills that are necessary to run a telecentre and effectively approach its respective target groups.
For further background information please refer to the preceding VET4e-I webpage.
This project is aimed to develop an exchange of innovative intergenerational learning experiences between people older than 55 years old and young volunteers. Firstly, it is focused on the development of the digital competences of the elders who are trained by the youngsters. Secondly, the elders will guide the youngsters in their access to the labor market and the challenges of adult life, completing in this way a circle of learning, exchange and conviviality. D-O-T co-coordinates the partnership composed by Fundación Esplai, the applicant entity, (Spain), ICTD for Development (Bulgaria), Universidad de Dortmund (Germany), RL –Reflective Learning- (UK), PCYF - Polish Children and Youth Foundation (Poland), ARCI y Lapis (Italia). (ongoing)
This Project started January 2011 and celebrated its kick off meeting in Warsaw (February). The second meeting was in Dortmund (July 2011) to launch the first findings and outcomes of the research phase (Methodological Harmonization Framework; Context Analysis report and The Strategic and Operative plan) to prepare the pilot phase (with all the training modules). During Jaunary 2012 there was another meeting in Worcester, in Rome in June and the Final Conference in Sofia (December 2012).

- Art Made Man - Through art therapies and handicraft - Proyecto GRUNDTVIG (CE)
Through arts, dance and handicraft, the project intends to define an integrated methodology to support target groups at risk of exclusion like disabled people, migrants, etc, to improve their quality of life The partnership is composed by D-O-T and Tamat NGO, Art Therapy Italiana, Rel.leg. Art. Coop Sociale (Italy), KZRSIISN (Poland), Socialiniu Inovaciju Fondas (Lithuania), Euro Training –ET- (Bulgaria), University of East Anglia (UK).
This Project started October 2010 and finalized in September 2012. The role of D-O-T was focused on creating the internal communication strategy (virtual space, forum, facebook…) as well as the “virtual wiki”, a knowledge base to be built collaboratively among the partners and other professionals from the sector. The intention was to develop a “meeting place” to share and exchange resources and methodological/practical material and tools about this integrated methodology – AMM methodology. Within this project, the methodology was tested in Bulgaria, Italy, Lithuania and Poland.
The kick off meeting was celebrated in Perugia (Italy) during the first week of February, and the second face to face meeting was held in Barcelona during May 2011. Warsaw and Kaunas (Poland and Lithuania) were the following cities to host the AMM consortium, then Bourgas (Bulgaria) and the final conference in Bologna (Italy).

- VET4e-I – Vocational education and training solutions for efacilitators for Social Inclusion. Proyecto LEONARDO (CE)
On the basis of a cross-country context analysis, the consortium proposed to develop an innovative solution for the common challenge of e-Inclusion: a training curriculum for e-Inclusion facilitators focused on the development of key competences of users at risk of social exclusion, aiming to their empowerment in the Knowledge society. This training curriculum was based on an innovative blended learning environment inspired in Web 2.0 as well as on user-centred didactics.
Partners of the consortium: D-O-T (coordinator), Fundación Esplai (Applicant) (Spain), ARCI and Lapis (Italy), La Ligue and Infrep (France), ICTDB (Bulgaria) and University of Dortmund (Germany).
Though the projects’ website and the dissemination materials like the newsletter, deliverables are well promoted and already visible to the general public and potential stakeholders. http://www.efacilitator.eu/wordpress/vet4e-i-deliverables/
- LEARNINC - Proyecto LEONARDO (CE)
D-O-T planned and organized different training and advising activities in El Raval, Barcelona. This neighborhood was chosen as the pilot area due to its cultural diversity, its allocation, and its “peculiar” social networking and atmosphere. A need of renewing the cultural brand was clearly identified among the different key actors of the zone (shop keepers, administration representatives, third sector organizations…), and different proposals, ideas and initiatives raised from the training sessions organized at place.
The main outcome of the Project is the LearnInc Guidelines, where all the results from the different countries’ activity, the toolset used during the project implementation, and the final conclusions are collected and described.
The final coordination meeting of the Project was celebrated in Genoa during November 2010.
