The SCRIPT project is aimed at the further development and testing of an online-supported dialogue process for the simplified coordination of educational objectives and the competence-related documentation of non-formal learning performances acquired in the course of international youth exchanges.
In the course of the European Youth Strategy and the implementation of the new European Education Program "Erasmus+", increasing demands are placed on international youth work for the contribution of improved social participation of young people as well as their professional integration. In view of the Europe-wide youth unemployment, the focus is placed on the occupational development effect of international encounters and mobility measures.
Accordingly, the development and testing of procedures for the visualisation and recognition of non-formal learning performances becomes the main challenge also for international youth work.
Objective is to make the coordination of educational objectives an integral component of the program planning and execution of youth exchanges in order to promote the incorporation of international exchanges into national projects of youth work and to improve the recognition of learning performances by external cooperation partners. For this purpose, a multi-level online procedure is to be developed and tested which starts as early as during the preparation of a youth exchange, continued during the exchange and is concluded during post-processing, following the completion of the measure.
At the conclusion of the project it is intended to have developed and tested a process through which national and international supporters of youth work can coordinate contents and the determination of learning objectives of their respective youth exchanges with the participating groups with the aid of an online-based dialogue process and describe individual or group-related learning performances. These descriptions of learning results are to be designed as "can-do descriptions" in such a manner that they - varied according to target group and application for different formats and topics of international youth exchanges - are recognised by establishments of formal education and documented via existing verification systems, such as the "International verification" and the "Youth Pass".
