Description of the initiative
The aim of the project is to contribute to raising the levels of understanding of ICT and embedded systems for Vocational Education and Training (VET) students and continuous education of professional workers in a broad field of engineering domains. This will be done by transferring the innovative study concept, namely “ Learning Situations “, from Germany to the Nordic/Baltic European region (mainly Estonia, but also to Finland and later Sweden), by adopting the product to Estonian needs and bringing them to the Internet learning environment.

The main outcomes of the project are adopted “Learning Situations” and can be used either in a conventional learning environment or through distance learning in e-environment. Practical aids for ICT and embedded system study, for VET and continuous education are supported by the universal e-platform with direct links to industrial needs. The long term outcomes involve raising the competence of new and practising engineers through contemporary learning tools and methods. This will lead to the development of significant improvements within VET and place European technology oriented SME companies in a better position for global competition. The consortium includes a university, vocational schools, SMEs and multipliers.
Collection of Learning Situations
Learning Situations are guidelines for teachers and students for acquiring integrated knowledge through practical learning processes.

The Learning Situations (L.S.) developed within the framework of this project are based upon integrating different domains such as mechanics, robotics, electronics, ICT, programming, etc., which are the contain the fundamental nature and expected knowledge of embedded systems. The L.S. consist of a teaching methodology which includes a practical project based, step-by-step system, focusing on particular small scale systems, for example; a molding production line, a robotic manipulator, or a mobile robot for simple navigation.

The Following L.S. are to be developed:
• Molding line - Production control
• Navigation robot - Robotics
• Line follower robot - Robotics
• Robotic arm - Manipulator - Industrial robotics
• Pneumatic engine - Automotive engineering
More Information
The methodology is intended for engineering students. Possibility of e-learning environment.
Teachers’ Opinion
The modern educational process e-learning environments is becoming a necessity because young people are busy with various activities. This project offers opportunities to acquire practical skills in engineering sciences visualizing learning situations with electronic learning tools. Useful as a tool for development of skills. Increases practical skills. However, useful for a narrow specialization. It is a very useful page for learning robotics as a subject.
Students’ Opinion
Many young people are busy, then it is a great opportunity to learn in the e-environment. This means that I can learn both at school and at home.

I'm very interested in embedded systems. I think that personal computers or smartphones are so complex and easy to use that vocational students in computers science or electronics don't need to understand what is happening inside.

This systems are very limited in computational power and they haven't graphic interfaces. But students can enjoy them, and they are learning deeply how computers work.



Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
