NEW BOOK: “Mentoring for 21st Century Skills – It’s all about the Learning”

The VITAE partnership have recently published the book “Mentoring for 21st Century Skills – It’s all about the Learning”. The project itself is based around the use of social technologies in VET (vocational education and training), and our aim has been to empower vocational teachers to mentor their students and colleagues to work competently in the digital world.  In the book, we present a collection of papers and articles which represent the varied backgrounds and interests of the authors, all of whom belong to the VITAE team who developed a variety of materials and approaches. While some articles are practical in their focus, describing the application of pedagogic models and the experiences of the participants; others are more theoretical, offering explorations of the approaches taken in developing the VITAE model.

The chapters are as follows:

Chapter 1: Teacher competence development – a European perspective
Chapter 2: The VITAE Approach
Chapter 3: Exploring Web 2.0 and Mentoring as Tools for Lifelong Learning
Chapter 4: Guided course development on the basis of an e-learning patterns template
Chapter 5: Fun and Games in professional development
Chapter 6: The VITAE e-portfolio – a catalyst for enhanced learning
Chapter 7: Community-based mentoring and innovating through Web 2.0
Chapter 8: Web 2.0 – Learning Culture and Organisational Change
