Projects in action: Ostende de Stad Aan Zee
IO2 report: setting up a transmedia educational resource
With IO2 the I improve partners want to develop a transmedia educational resource, using in the I improve parformation across several accessible Web 2.0 platforms which support a variety of media formats.
Second, this IO2 platform serves as a space to document the learning process of staff members participating in the learning activity. Focusing on an informal educational approach, journal writing is introduced as a means of individual reflection and personal reflection.
By using web 2.0 technology, we transform the content of individual reflection into a collaborative experience, which in turn encourages interaction between creator and audience.
This IO2 transmedia platform was a result of a lot of discussion and preparations between all I improve partners. We give you an insight:
The train of digital improvement: all aboard!
The library of Ostend has gone through a huge digital revolution. The whole team stepped on a digital train that is unstoppable! The digital knowledge that we gained during the I improve project gives us new possibilities to reach out to target groups and people who are not able to come to the library. We’re one step closer to becoming an inclusive library.
Elderly needs assessment in Ostend
The city of Ostend has an elderly population. 36% of the inhabitants are older than 60. How can we promote the participation of the elderly in local policies? An elderly needs assessment was developed to explore the needs of these increasing elderly group.
Personal reflection of colleague Jasmijn on the I improve learning week in Stockholm
When I started my job at the library in May 2019, the dementia project had already kicked off. And even though I wasn't involved at that moment, I loved to hear from my colleagues Matthias, Isabelle, Stan and Hans how the sessions were going. This valuable project, which later got the name Forgotten Orchestra, was a perfect example of how a public service and the library could contribute to an inclusive town.
