Energy efficiency in the classroom

The third result will be student oriented and will consist of the following two activities: 

  1. Generation of Best Practices for use in resources in the VET learning process. 
  2. Design and implementation of badges. Working with partner organizations, training materials will be presented for testing and validation. 


Emphasis will be placed on working in new dynamic and online learning environments, and exploring the different roles of vocational education and training in these environments. The proposed resources will introduce smart devices as appropriate dynamic learning environments that are engaging for VET students. 

All of this should ensure that teachers: 

  • Are comfortable working with the new tools, infographics and digital breakouts in these nontraditional learning environments. 
  • Have a full understanding of the benefits of online environments. 
  • Be aware of the risks pertaining to these online environments. 
  • Be able to react to possible negative factors associated with online learning. 

The European Union economy continues to evolve at a rapid pace, so vocational teachers are expected to adopt new methodologies to meet the new needs that emerge, however, in many cases, these teachers are not provided with in-house training programs to enable them. 

BENEFY proposes a comprehensive educational intervention where the needs of these training teachers, who are key intermediaries, are considered necessary and important. The training proposal to support vocational teachers, so that they maximize their potential related to the tools and resources developed in the project, represents a significant innovation in vocational training. Harnessing the potential of online learning through the myriad of existing platforms and social networks can have a major impact on the accessibility and viability of vocational training.

Ensuring that vocational teachers have the confidence to work in these environments can have a continued impact on the future and positive implications for the delivery of vocational education and training services to digital natives in a wide range of situations and circumstances that currently hinder learning. As the reach of online platforms continues to grow, the demand for vocational teachers willing and able to work in these environments will also grow. The development made will be transferable to other VET organizations in the participating countries and the development of the model will be relevant in other countries.
