The use of technology in education has revolutionized learning. Shifting beyond traditional mode of education, the integration of technology has become an advantage for students with specific needs. E-learning brings forth a flexible and accessible mode of education. Further the use of technology also bridges the gap of learning across borders.

With e-learning, students can have the access to other universities and academic resource materials from other countries, thereby broadening the knowledge base of students. Given these advantages, it is pivotal to deliberate upon the development of technology use in education.

We invite you to the January CIDER session at the Canadian Initiative for Distance Education Research. This free, online session will feature an overview and presentation of case studies by the Grading Soft Skills (GRASS) project team.

Title: The GRASS Project – measuring 21st Century learning: Innovative pedagogy and assessment with technology

Grading Soft Skills (GRASS) is a 3-year research project financially supported by the EU, focusing on representing soft skills of learners of various ages and at different levels of education in a quantitative, measurable way, so that these skills can become the subject of formal validation and recognition. This session will include an overview of the GRASS project, along with case studies of developing and measuring soft skills, presented by an international panel of project members: Vladan Devedzic, Jelena Jovanovic, Niall Seery, Adrian O’Connor, and Stephan Hrastinski.
