The Safety4El project will be presented at the EfVET 2019 conference on the Azores

The project will be presented at two roundtables:

The presentation will demonstrate how the Safety4El project (Safety4El KA202-2016-016), which is working on improving safety for electricians, has made use of CALL as part of the safety training.

Safety4El makes extensive use of a platform, Clilstore (being further developed by COOL KA2-2018-1-ES01-KA203-050474, a new EC co-funded project), which links all words in a text to dictionaries covering 118 languages, see example: http://multidict.net/cs/4711

It will be demonstrated how a teacher in a few minutes can create online units in the new Clilstore, see an example/ appetizer of how Clilstore has been used in a class https://youtu.be/t9sAr6f2aLA.

The presentation will share experiences learned from combining CLIL scaffolding as part of content teaching to cater for students (e.g. with an immigrant background) finding abstract vocabulary a barrier to understanding the content.

4th project meeting, Paola September 25th and 26th 2018

The teams met in Paola, Malta for the 4th project meeting. The core content was:

  • Schedule updates
  • Quality control and monitoring
  • Policy making and exploitation
  • Ensure that all teams know their tasks and responsibilities

Working on a scaffold

A video where you can watch an electrician who is going to work on a scaffold, wearing protective gear. He tries to take certain safety measures but in the absence of the right equipment he takes temporary measures which can be fatal. The video was recorded by the Maltese team in the Safety4El project. Link to the video: https://youtu.be/JOqNoiY-Crc


Safe Isolation – a Virtual Reality case

This VR (Virtual Reality) case study will enable the learners to view and interact with the working environments in the safety of the classroom environment.

Learners should explore at their own pace giving them greater depth of the working environment than traditional resources such as posters, hand-outs and books.

How to watch the VR video:

  • On a computer you can use the mouse to move around the room.
  • On Tablets and Smartphones. The use of hand held mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads or similar devices will give a better result with the ability to use the real time motion tracking sensors. You can download VR viewing apps from Google Play or APP Store
