France Erasmus+ Training Course

Digital DIY: Music Making Training Workshop France Erasmus+ Training Course 23-29 May 2022 | La Fouillade, France

We are offering a one week course targeted towards youth practitioners. It will provide the opportunity to learn about Maker Education in the context of Digital DIY and Music Making, and how to apply these practises in youth work.

Maker education is a problem-based and project-based approach to learning. It emphasizes the use of low-tech and high-tech gadgets, a trial-and-error mindset, and it encourages learners to develop 21st century skills such as communication, creativity and problem solving.

Our project is providing an opportunity for youth workers to explore Digital Maker Education with a focus  on DIY activities, music making and theatre. Youth workers will be able to gain hands-on experience exploring digital educational workshops which incorporate skills such as electronics and programming. This will be an opportunity for professionals to come together from across Europe and brainstorm new tools, methods and techniques relevant to this field.

Calling for participants from Spain, Italy, Greece, France, Latvia, Romania and Belgium.
