Quali sono gli obiettivi specifici del progetto e quali sono i mezzi usati per raggiungerli?: 
The main purpose of the project is to create a responsible attitude towards the environment and awareness of the importance of the various natural resources to preserve the equilibrium of on the Earth. Meanwhile, the varied use of the most critical global innovative resources supports the development of the competencies of the 21st century. A special place is given to the use of the latest technological innovations in education - KINECT, Microsoft Tag, Kodu. KINECT Kinect is a system which was originally developed as a plug-game console. In the last year it began to be used in the field of education. The advantages of the system are that the classroom teaching is complemented by the exciting emotional and physical activity of students. The control is entirely in the hands (body) of the person who operates it - thus the responsibility of the conducted activities is being realized. Microsoft Tag With the help of Microsoft Tag some of the activities in the project are presented to students in an exciting way. They go out of the usual classroom and engage in a school adventure where, besides the learning tasks to the specific topics, a close and informal communication with their teachers is put into practice. KODU Kodu is software to develop games for children. Working with Kodu is fun for students. The easy and fast learning to work with, the friendly and close to children interface gives them self-confidence and stimulate creative thinking. The assigned task in the Kodu project - a development of an environmental game. Glogster The use of web 2.0 and 3.0 tools allows the moving out of the project to another environment - students work from their homes; create posters, banners and flyers. The teacher has the role of an administrator - they monitor, direct, encourage and evaluate the students' activities in http://edu.glogster.com/.

The project has an environmental focus, but most of the activities involved are related to the expansion of knowledge on various subjects. The students learn more about the Solar system and the planets, the Earth, the alternation of the days and the nights as well as the seasons - the students make their presentations, modals of the Solar System. Through the inclusion in the various missions and through their presentation on the respective subjects by the teachers with the help of Microsoft tag, the students perform tasks of the areas as Mathematics, ICT, Geography, English language, Literature and History. Through the topics of the project and the way they are presented (before their mates, in the form of a poster, a presentation, a game, a glogster) the students develop some of the typical for critical thinking characteristics and elements: ○ An ability to read between the lines, seeing beneath the surface; ○ A logical argumentation as a manifestation of tolerance for others' opinions; ○ An ability to analyze their own thoughts from the standpoint of logic and the clarity of the expression; ○ A presentation of well-founded point of view.

Our main idea is the management of innovation to become a permanent policy of the school. That's why after our participation at the forum in Washington and London, the school established a new position - Innovation Manager responsible for the overall vision of innovative education - seeking new technologies and testing new innovative solutions and management of their implementation. That manager presented the CARE project in Portugal which successfully combined KINEKT, KODU, Microsoft Tag and web 2.0 platforms (glogster). During the creation of this project the innovation manager organized the participation of many teachers, who in their turn prompted the students to understand the benefits of technology beyond the leisure time. Another major milestone for the realization of our ideas is sharing good and innovative teaching practices at regional, national and international level. In this way we are able to help our colleagues to avoid difficulties and unsuccessful attempts, help them with our experience. Our participation in the program so far has convinced us of the effectiveness of this model - by organizing forums, workshops, web meetings, we started to form a Council of innovation in education, which will be hosted by the Minister of Education, Youth and Science. Thus we believe we can help the new pathfinder schools and are highly motivated to do it.

Another challenge deals with measuring of the effectiveness of innovative practices that are implemented in our school. Therefore, our main work in the coming years will be aimed at creating a system for testing and evaluating the effectiveness of innovation. There are difficulties associated with the issues of studying the skills of the 21st century we are aware of so far in testing, that is why together with colleagues from other schools we develop adapted versions.

ANPPCAN Mobile Phone Job Information Service
Riassunto del progetto (max. 2000 caratteri): 
Because our technology works in almost any location—urban or rural—we are able to serve a wide range of citizens in need across Malawi but with one common criterion: The main beneficiaries of ANPPCAN’s innovation are job-seekers from poor rural communities, marginalized urban communities, or refugeeEg from Burundi, Ethopi in camps. We focus on the poor in general, because wealthier job-seekers in Urban have far better access to information and resources that help them get jobs easily. Wealthier families typically have computers and Internet at home, and/or strong family connections which virtually guarantee them jobs at leading firms. The poor have none of these things: They have no social networks, they have no technology, they don’t know where to look for services. My team’s innovation helps reduce these differences and equalize the opportunities of the poor so that even from a simple mobile phone they can get the same information as someone in the wealthiest part of town with a personal computer. Within poor communities, we focus mainly on helping young people, since the need for job information and support is often greatest for those who are entering the labor market for the first time. We also place a strong emphasis on helping young women, since this demographic is often the most marginalized and excluded in the African . Traditional families usually don’t allow young women to search for jobs in person, and Internet cafes are usually dominated by rich men—leaving female job-seekers with few resources for finding work, and with a far greater chance than men of remaining unemployed (and entering into early marriages). We aim to overcome these barriers by giving women a safe, discreet way to search for work without leaving home or using the web in public ANPPCAN seeks to transform labor markets and economies from opaque systems that exclude the average citizen to transparent systems that empower even the most marginalized workers. In Blantyre - where our project began- and throughout the Malawi , a lack of information about job opportunities has made work available only to a privileged, mostly few male minority who have access to Internet and elite social networks ANPPCAN), Malawi Chapter set out to change this through a simple, yet powerful technology. Our job-matching service leads to more income for needy families and to more productivity for businesses that need qualified workers. By scaling up ANPPCAN), Malawi Chapter’s impact , we aim to promote economic growth and reduce poverty and inequality throughout the Country.

Ad oggi, quali sono i risultati raggiunti dal vostro progetto e quali sono i criteri per valutarli? (max. 2000 caratteri): 
Today, 11,000+ job-seekers and 400+ employers use our Job Match technology every day. Each of these users benefits from our technology, but for women in traditional communities, the impact of low-cost, accessible job-search resources has been especially dramatic: 81% of females surveyed in a late-2012 poll said their families forbid them outright from traveling to look for work; 78% said they were jobless for 10+ months as a result. Now, by using ANPPCAN through their phones, 90% report increased access to employment, resulting in job offers. In addition to helping users save money and find more job opportunities, ANPPCAN also helps job-seekers and employers increase their earnings: In 2011, 75%+ of employers using our pilot JobMatch service had cut hiring time and costs by over 50%. Employers surveyed by ANPPCAN in late 2011 reported an increase in gross revenue of $600+/mo. At the same time, Malawian job- seekers finding work through ANPPCAN, have also reported clear income gains, with a majority citing new monthly wages of $200+ after finding jobs through the service. Taken altogether, these results are dramatic: 2,000+ newly-employed workers have earned a combined $6.6 million a year in new income; and with each worker supporting 5+ family members, an additional 10,000 people have benefited indirectly from ANPPCAN Mobile technology. Another key challenge ANPPCAN Mobile technology has faced relates to the labor market itself. In most communities where ANPPCAN Mobile technology is in use, local labor markets often shrink or shift, decreasing the number of jobs posted by employers on the service. In our work to date, we’ve addressed these issues: Our strong PR efforts show users how simple it is to get job market information by phone. Local demonstrations & a support hotline offer a close-up look at 24-hour assistance. This demonstrates to those who may initially be intimidated by the process that ample support exists to get them started and they soon realize how simple it is to use Job Match. A mix of jobs, apprenticeships, & training listings across sectors help insulate against market shocks.

Designed to be easily scalable and replicable across the developing world. Our “plug-and-play” modular application requires minimal hardware, minimal set-up time, and minimal added cost. For technical scale-up, our database and gateway structure are easily expandable to accommodate thousands of new users. For 2011 – 2013, we aim to leverage these conditions to expand Job Match into one new market per year, likely Zambia and Mozmbiqe . Given these countries’ high rates of mobile phone use, low rates of web access, we feel we can make a real impact in the lives of disadvantaged job-seekers in both locations. We believe these growth plans are realistic—however we also feel that additional funding could allow us to expand the depth and breadth of our work dticalramaly.

Governments typically offer few services to help workers find job. Nepotistic hiring practices are rampant. When we conducted a survey of over 8,000 youth in 2011, 75% of respondents thought that the only way to get jobs was through personal connections. Securing employment is particularly difficult for women in marginalized communities. Most Internet cafes are dominated by males-making them unsafe or unwelcoming. The preferred means of job-hunting (i.e. door-to-door in-person searches) is often frowned upon or forbidden by families. Not only does we provide access to job information for those who have no other resources, we also provide a safe and socially-acceptable way for women to find employment
Progetti per il futuro e aspettative (max. 750 caratteri): 
ANPPCAN Mobile leverages the pre-existing networks on the ground in order to better integrate our innovative technology with traditional practices. We’ve found that the best way to do this, and to build upon local knowledge, is to collaborate with partners like government bodies, NGOs and universities. For example, universities were an integral part in introducing JobMatch to graduating students so that they could more easily find a job post-degree. We also work with ministries like the Ministry of Education in order to publicize our service, to indicate the areas of most need and to create national job creation plans. Local NGOs and nonprofits also help us to create local buy-in and generate trust and familiarity amongst local populations.

To provide opportunity for young people to acquire ICT literacy and necessary technical skills for job opportunity.
Riassunto del progetto (max. 2000 caratteri): 
The project puts emphasis on using information and communication technologies in the context of global youth priorities, such as access to education, employment and poverty eradication. In addition, the cost of ICT access (mobile phones and Internet) is much higher as a proportion of per capita income in these particularly disadvantaged countries. We want s to bringing together all relevant stakeholders, including governments, civil society and the private sector, and encouraging them to work together to provide an environment that fosters the development of young people and enables them to realize their potential in the Information Society. The ICT centre will act as a resource centre for community mobilization, training and empowering young people to engage in community economic development by venturing them into employment. Disadvantaged and marginalized youth, such as migrant and refugee youth, youth with HIV and AIDS, indigenous youth, youth with disabilities, rural youth, youth experiencing poverty, and those facing discrimination, are often excluded from access to ICTs. The effective allocation of resources so as to ensure equal opportunities and access to ICTs for youth living in vulnerable situations is critical to ensuring that ICTs are used and developed in an inclusive and equitable manner.

Quali sono gli obiettivi specifici del progetto e quali sono i mezzi usati per raggiungerli?: 
We must address unequal opportunities for ICT use within groups. Important factors in this respect include an individual’s socio-economic position, level of education and place of residence. We want youth participation in democracy and the possibilities that may develop after the digital revolution. Opportunities for children and youth to express their ideas and opinions about different issues in society have traditionally been very limited. We want to participate strengthen policies for the provision of information and communication technologies (ICTs), including access to internet, for education, and including the promotion of ICT training for education that is relevant and of high quality. The project seeks to serve Youth through a number of products and services: Participatory Project Design; youth Led Innovative Program Implementation; seed Grant Projects for Entrepreneurship Development; developing multi-stakeholder partnerships for program design; building local capacity for program implementation; using new technologies for livelihood generation; community Driven Development; initiating Pilot projects; livelihoods based approaches to enterprise development in: Renewable Energy, HIV/AIDS, IT, Rural Development, Water and Sanitation and community volunteer-ship.

In a broad sense, the benefits arise from improvements in education and access to information. At the individual level, ICT has assisted some young people to gain more meaningful jobs, to communicate easily with other youth from all over the world, and thus share their experiences. Some youth are capable of using ICT in diverse and novel ways, as a result of which traditional forms of socialization such as the family and school are increasingly being challenged and overtaken. These technologies offer a culture of information, pleasure and relative autonomy, all of which are particularly appealing to young people. Many young people are simultaneously experiencing life within the global and local spheres. They develop a global consciousness yet still have to function and survive in their own locality and culture. The project evaluation criteria includes study on: the importance of the role of youth entrepreneurship in creating employment opportunities from ICT; the value of public-private partnerships in making the most of the employment potential of ICT for young people; how ICT opportunities can also assist vulnerable groups of young people; ways that ICT can help link the informal sector to opportunities in the world economy.

Youth and ICT play an important role to uplift the living standard of youth themselves and the community they live in. Furthermore, ICT can increase the interest to learn new things, easy mean for job searching and application, easy money transfer and payments for school fees, easy communication and mass media entertainment; ICT helps in the cognitive development aspect of children, students, and all; ICT helps everyone to develop and shape their thinking power; logic sense; ICT increases the self confidence of a person, opening up to diversity and inclusion, helps in skill development. On creating job opportunities: youth use skills to open micro-entrepreneurship like mobile phone money transfer, setting up a community disaster management training- warning - and mobilization center as a mean for social development and resource support. ICT projects are vital to improving rural community livelihoods by: informing and forming on relevant decisions about livelihood strategies, thereby reducing disaster impact (flood, disease, drought warning and mitigation), and increasing income diversification; improvements in efficiency and effectiveness of rural service delivery across areas of health, education, agricultural extension, training and knowledge resources.
