New agogic vision for promoting basic literacy

An institution from Belgium suggests a new agogic vision for fostering basic skills.

The European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan set a goal stating that “60% of all adults should be participating in training every year by 2030”. At the same time the statistical data show a clear between the level of education and participation in adult learning: the higher qualification is, the more often a person participates in training – and vice versa. This means that, in order to reach the goals set, adult education providers should make extra efforts to reach the persons with low qualifications or poor literacy skills.
Helga Gehre, a Flemish expert, presented a new agogic vision for promoting basic skills that is based on the functional and integrated approach towards communication, numerical, digital and learning skills of learners. The vision consists of the following pillars:
𝗟𝗼𝗼𝗸: look what what your students are interested in, what they are good at and what they need.
𝗜𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗲: lead by example and show that you enjoy what you do.
𝗔𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗲: encourage the students to take responsibility for their actions
𝗖𝗮𝗿𝗲: take into account the background of your students and try to create welcoming environment for them
𝗣𝘂𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗯𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀: think how hybrid learning can fit into functional and integrated working.
𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁: encourage cooperation between colleagues, learners, external partners.
