The State Institute of Vocational Education (ŠIOV) is collaborating on a project focusing on connecting traditional education with e-learning methods in maintenance and repairs of hybrid and electric vehicles.

The project is designed for secondary vocational school pupils who study in automotive industry-linked specialisations, the SITA newswire reported.

Within the project, they focus on using innovative teaching methods, such as investigative learning or critical thinking methods, which should bring more quality materials for teachers and also students, said ŠIOV head Michal Bartók.

“Slovakia is undoubtedly the world carmaking power,” Bartók said, as quoted by SITA. “The future belongs to environmentally-friendly vehicles and this project flexibly responds to ecological trends.”

Outcomes of the project will include be e-learning interactive teaching modules, working lists and videos for practical training, as well as methodical materials for teachers and an online dictionary with technical terms in language mutations of the project’s partners.

Currently, there are 14 partners working on the project from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and the United Kingdom, SITA reported.

As for Slovakia, the partners are ŠIOV, the Slovak Automotive Industry Association, the Dual Academy in Bratislava and eCentre for Modern Education Bratislava.

The schools involved in the project will test the educational materials that are currently being developed. The organisations active in the automotive industry will add current know-how to the materials and will also provide the feedback.

The project was launched in January and will last until the end of October 2019, SITA reported.
