A New Learning Platform for IT Education

Turing school VšĮ together with partners Skaitmeninių Inovacijų Institutas VšĮ, Turing College UAB and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University are currently implementing a project financed by the European Union.

The project aims to create a smart learning experience platform adapted to teaching programming. The initiative will solve the problems existing in IT education by organizing innovative and self-governing education.

The project imagines scientific research for the development and validation of a concept of a smart learning experience platform in IT education. The result of the project is the development of a personalized re-modelling of adaptable programmatic learning (taking into account a person's cognitive learning style: be it attention, perception, memory, learning, or behavioural in cyberspace). Use experiential feature software which offers clear learning instructions and tasks for information technology. The interaction of the user with the software is integrated with automated progress assessment techniques for groups of learners.

The product can be used by 16-29 years olds, people with developmental, psychological or physical impairments, and others. It could later be used not only by individuals but also implemented at the state level.

Funded under the 2014-2020 Experiment Measure of the European Union Funds Investment Operational Program Priority 1 for the “Promotion of Scientific Research, Experimental Development and Innovation”. This is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Total Value of the Project: 1, 057,419.00 Euros.

Funding for the project from the European Regional Development Fund: 765,278.69 Euros.

Funds supplied by the applicant and partners: 292 140.31 Euros.

The project is effective from June 1, 2020 until August 4, 2022.
