On April 21st SUPSI met two trainers from Swiss Road Transport Association (ASTAG) in Manno (CH). The meeting aimed to present the training path, a number of ICT technologies and tools useful in educational contexts, and the interactive material in Italian produced by C95 Challenge project that includes interactive slides, hyper-videos, apps and games. The trainers’ feedback was very positive; teachers recognised the usefulness and the potential effectiveness of the training material in increasing drivers’ motivation and engagement. In the next weeks the interactive material will be further explored and tested, and additional comments will be provided.
Dario Bogana, responsible for the professional training of the Swiss Road Transport Association (ASTAG) expresses a positive opinion on the “C-95 Challenge” project and confirms the importance of the training modules the consortium is working on, in particular “security on the road” and “eco drive”.
In February and March 2015 SUPSI has carried out the collection of data about the driver profile and needs through questionnaires and focus group, involving two different Swiss training centres (SAPSI and RASS). Afterwards data were elaborated producing a national report presented in Baden in the second project meeting (13-14 April 2015).
The first project meeting will be held in Pesaro from the 15 to 17 December 2014.
The partners from Austria, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and Italy will meet to discuss and plan the activities foreseen for the next two years of the project.
