Prestudy material

We will use socrative.com for our session on Tuesday. The group found it easiest to use on mobile device. If you don`t have a mobile device to use you can just open another page on your browser and get it smaller so that you are able to see the AC room page and the browser page at the same time. When you are using mobile device (or browser for that matter), open socrative.com and choose “student login”.

The codes for each room are:
Labrats: GS8YXTNR6
Edustars: XG4Yw4tyM
Alpha: UguMRZvJg

13.25-13.50 Topic 2 What does ECVET mean? How does it affect vocational education?

Grapes’ Pretask:

  1. Watch the video to get to know ECVET
    FinECVET Story – ECVET Step by Step
    2. During the class we will have a role play with a following situation: Anna is a hairdresser student who wants to do part of her studies in Oulu. The idea is to find out what ECVET can mean from her perspective.

As a pretask, please prepare for the roleplay:

You are free to complete this task as a group or individually.

There is also a Prezi published before the session on Facebook, please have a look on that one in advance.

Team Alpha had thought ahead about VOC 8 session being so close to hallowee. Group would like you all to prepare some “costume” to wear. Please prepare something to wear (mainly on your face/hair/top part), even a small thing. Use your imagination, scissors, marker, your wardrobe etc. Dont panic or stress about this.

PLEASE NOTE! For the topic 4  VOC session, we shall all gather into the main AC room. Team Alpha’s presentation is held there, not in the small group rooms.

How to prepare?

Find the instructions if missing https://edulaboulu.wordpress.com/voc-1-10/

Also, make sure that the materials are uploaded in groups’ own AC room beforehand and check that all connections are working properly.

If you have any further questions, please share a question in our FB-group.

Keep it simple!!!
