Article about EDU-VET is online

In the new issue of the WorldSkills Germany Magazine, Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner, coordinator of the EDU-VET project, reports on digitisation in vocational schools and provides insights into the EDU-VET project. At this point Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner not only highlights the aims of the EDU-VET project, he also pleads for the anchoring of a lifelong development process in context of the digital transformation, especially in the vocational training context: “First of all, we need to ensure that the digitalisation process is not only a matter of the vocational school system, but also of the vocational training system itself. We would like to establish the didactic digitization approach in this project,” says Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner.
