YOWOMO2.0-Train


Education and training for youth work in the age of smartphones and social media (2016-2019)

Youth Work Mobile 2.0 – Train  (YOWOMO2.0-Train) was a European partnership developing education and training for youth work in the age of smartphones and social media.

The core idea of YOWOMO2.0-Train was to get youth work in shape for the 21st century. Main target group were both youth workers and youth work trainers and educators. Education and training for both was developed to acquire competence and make use of up to date digital technology. This enables professional youth work to become a player in the digitalisation of Europe increasing digital inclusion, community cohesion, digital citizenship, youth participation, while decreasing informational poverty among young people.

YOWOMO2.0-Train developed three outputs:

  1. A course for youth work in the age of smartphones and social media. This course enables youth work trainees and professionals to acquire the competences for youth work in the age of smartphones and social media. Due to the diversity of both youth work practice and youth work education and training across Europe the instructional design of this course reflects the contexts of the participating partners.
  2. A preparatory course for trainers, educators, and lecturers to hold the courses for youth work in the age of smartphones and social media.
  3. An online learning platform and repository. The YOWOMO2.0-Train online platform offer these courses in form of MOOCs and serves as a repository of open educational resources for education and training.

YOWOMO2.0-Train is finished and  the results are available at www.yowomo.eu.
