Title: Blended Learning Spaces as a Social Innovation for Local Inclusion, Integration and Employability
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: The paper highlights the potential of blended learning spaces (telecentres, public internet centres etc.) making use of social media based curricula as a means for fostering eInclusion as a challenge for European policy. It differentiates three dimensions in which blended learning spaces have to improve in order to scale up to a commonly accepted and professionalised social innovation. Data provided in the paper was collected and analysed in three European lifelong learning projects. As one specific example, a methodological approach for intergenerational learning is described in more detail, which corresponds with 2012 as the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. The paper has implications for (1) application-oriented research in the field of eInclusion and blended learning spaces, (2) blended learning spaces personnel and (3) policy-makers from the European to the regional level by helping them reflect upon eInclusion opportunities in their respective field of responsibility.
