The New Technologies are particularly relevant for the project. They are not used as a mere tool to accompany the learning or simply as the opportunity to exploit the potential of new learning environments. In the project "V-3DAS", use of ICTs allows to explore new areas of applicability: the simulation of an internship in a virtual and protected environment, reproducing all the problems and the interactions of a model farm. The learners could experiment entrepreneurial roles, "put themselves to the test" to solve challenging situations of professional practice, make strategic choices of business.
The entire training pathway will be structured as a learning developmental project aimed to elicit a change in the professional mindset of young learners through a gradual articulation in terms of training settings, learning content, teaching methodologies and tools.
The process of validation and formalisation of the training curriculum is supported by 4 pilot courses in Italy, France, Spain and Greece. The use of an operational tool-box supports trainers to sustain the transfer into formal systems of Vocational Training.
