Crafts act as an important buffer in economic downturns and play a central role in providing VET on the job. The new generation of high tech digital tools and cutting edge machinery, like 3D printers, is transforming and leading the applied arts and craft sectors to a new digital age. To lead this transformation Europe needs to count with skilled handicraft teachers and trainers, equipped with the necessary competencies and resources to integrate these digital tools into innovative ICT based teaching and learning practices.
The aim of CRAFTS 3.0 project is to support the professional development of handicraft teachers and trainers in Europe in their transition to the digital age, by improving their teaching competencies on innovative VET education through ICT based methods and tools.
CRAFTS 3.0 prepares handicraft teachers and trainers to adapt their teaching practice to the next generation of high tech digital tools and cutting edge machinery, like 3D printers, vinyl cutters, CNC milling or laser cutting and engraving.
