Multiplier Event for the project VISION (Visualising the Future through Training) titled:

«Virtual Reality in Technical Education and Training - Pilot Application in Prisons: Vision or Utopia? »

The Athens Lifelong Learning Institute organizes the first Multiplier Event of the European project VISION (Visualising the Future Through Training). The project is implemented in collaboration with institutions from Portugal, Romania, France, Spain and Italy, while the coordinator of the project is the University Beira Interior in Portugal. The event will take place on Wednesday, January 31, at Impact Hub (Karaiskaki 28, Athens) at 11:00 – 13:00.

The VISION project proposes a series of activities that can contribute to the improvement of the education provided in prisons in Greece and Europe through the use of Virtual Reality (VR) applications. Based on the extensive research carried out by the project partners on the motivation of prisoners to participate in educational initiatives in prisons, they developed an innovative training program during which prisoners, through Virtual Reality, “experience” the professional occupation in a specific subject and gain valuable educational and professional experiences.

During the Multiplier Event, the approach and methodology of the VISION project will be presented, while its first – very encouraging – results will be discussed, as it is the first attempt, at European level, to train prisoners using Virtual Reality applications.

The Event is addressed to professionals in the field of prison policy and education, adult education and the support of vulnerable social groups.
