Nowadays data literacy is widely considered a critical skill to have in the 21st century. It can be defined as the ability to read, work with, analyse, and argue with data, in order to derive meaningful information and knowledge. In the data economy, making sense of data is no longer a must-have skill for data scientist or technology experts only, but it is becoming an essential ability for all workers and a competence that facilitates their employability.
Despite its relevance in labour market and society in general, data analysis is still not included in many university courses, as it is usually part of computer science, engineering and math courses’ curricula
The project DATALIT aims at:
- Offering to university students across different Faculties, the opportunity to reach a suitable level of data knowledge that they can use and apply appropriately and diversely throughout their personal and professional lives, and possibly to use as sound basis for further and more specialised training in data literacy and science.
- Narrowing the gap between business and academia and to put European enterprises in direct contact with potential future employees or business partners properly trained to understand and exploit data effectively.
To reach these objectives, the project aims at laying the ground for the integration of data literacy as transversal topic in potentially all university courses, by identifying and developing common syllabus and innovative teaching and learning approaches

In the framework of our KA1 project training course in Palermo the Health Points projects was presented as an example of making use of gamified elements in a Moodle environment.
13 educators from adult education and universities worked together on exemplary training activities on health prevention for young disadvantaged people with the aim to become familiar with opportunities that Moodle offers in terms of interactivity and the use of gamified elements. They developed for example an interactive video on eating and drinking habits, a map with food and alimentary traditions at global level, a memory on celebraties that have abused of drugs or alcohol to show the effects of the abuse … . This was very revealing and inspiring and helped enormously to develop subsequently the learning units for the Health Points project.
The EMPROVE team is currently in Germany (April 2018), reviewing the feedback from testing the EMPROVE innovative platform in six EU countries … the official public launch of the platform is approaching!
The platform offers various missions to support women survivors of domestic violence to empower them by supporting them in reflecting on their strenghts and values. The platform is based on the theory of gamification and uses gamified elements aimed to engage the DV survivors in a long-term journey of empowerment. The platform combines solving different online or live missions and achievements, in addition to the face-to-face sessions with a counsellor, using also the power of the own self-confidence.
If you want to try out the platform, please contact the EMPROVE team at firstname.lastname@example.org
BUPNET was successful in applying for funds for their continous professional develpoment of their staff.
