“City or Region of Learning is a new approach of connecting learning opportunities across territories and making them more visible and accessible to young people. Cities and Regions of Learning use web infrastructure to map learning opportunities, offer local and digital experiences, use digital Open Badges to value and recognise learning and achievements. It also offers many possibilities for supporting youth employment.”

What we will learn

In this workshop we will familiarize ourselves with the concept of City or Region of Learning. We will explore the following questions:
•What is a City or Region of Learning?
•What are the benefits of a City or Region of Learning?
•What are the learning playlists and digital Open Badges?
•How can we utilize City or Region of Learning in supporting youth employment in South Savo?

Who for?
