Seeking collaboration in project proposals related to Digital Skills

Dear All.

The SEIT Lab (http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/seit) is seeking collaboration opportunities in EU funded initiatives, such as Erasmus+, Horizon Europe, etc. in preparing proposals related to Digital Skills. You may see our expertise in past participation in projects by visiting our web site. For collaboration, drop me an email at: george@cs.ucy.ac.cy .

Regards

George

Hi George

 I am responsible of the digital skills module called "PIX" which is offered to all undergraduate students at our university. It is based on the Dig comp developed by DigComp EU. We issue certificates at the end of the course, like the English ones delivered by TOEIC or TOEFL.

Pix is an online public service for the assessment, development and certification of digital skills. PIX, based on the European DIGCOMP reference framework, will enable you to acquire digital skills that are essential for your university studies but also for your professional future. The university implemented the PIX certification at the beginning of the 2018-2019 academic year.

 This new certificate does not refer to a level of study, but is intended for a continuum from student to professional and from student to professional and concerns various audiences: school, university, employees,...

It includes 5 competency areas:

  • Information and data,
  • Collaboration and communication,
  • Content creation,
  • Protection and security,
  • Digital environment.

You can consult a more complete description of the repository on the PIX website. Each of these domains has 8 levels (currently only levels 1 to 6 exist), so the assessment of these competencies is done on a national platform. It is thus possible to measure your digital skills by passing positioning tests on this platform.

1.1. Acquire digital skills to improve your PIX score

PIX training is integrated in our training courses

1.2 How to pass a PIX certification

Certification takes place in 2 steps: first of all, you must test your digital skills by passing challenges. Once this is done, the university may offer to offer you a certification.

Test PIX skills

To be able to obtain a PIX certification, you must first have obtained a level in at least 5 skills. Below, the certification is not accessible on the platform. To do this, you must pass at least 5 of the 16 questionnaires or challenges. To obtain certification in all areas, it will be necessary to pass the 16 challenges. Each challenge lasts an average of 30 minutes, although you can take as long as you need to complete them (there is no timing of the challenges). It is possible to stop during the passage of a challenge. It is then sufficient to reconnect to the platform to be able to continue it. You can repeat the challenges every 4 days.

Essential on the CV, the Pix certification allows you to obtain a certified digital skills profile, recognized by the State and the professional world. It is an asset in the search for an internship, for evolution in higher education, and for professional integration

The project is an unprecedented approach of co-construction with actors from the professional world. We train, assess and certify the digital skills of all audiences in French and English on 8 levels and 5 main areas:

 

Le Mans university offers a trainning module for assessment, development and certification in digital skills. We can can receive all audiences from europe and  also  provide trainings abroad.

I'm ready for any collaboration about digital skills

Best regards

⦿ The overall level is expressed by a number of PIX that will be a maximum of 1024. ⦿

Passing a PIX certification

Passing the certification corresponds to a particular challenge that will test the levels you have obtained during the passage of the previous challenges. It takes place in a supervised computer room, on one of the university's sites, and lasts 2 hours in total (the challenge takes place in 1h30 maximum). Certification is a formal way of attesting to the level you have reached in each field. Normally, there is no failure at certification. At worst, you will get a lower level than expected. It is therefore quite possible to obtain a certification with a level 3 in domain 1, 6 in domain 2, etc....

 

However, the PIX certification system may not certify you if it has doubts about the veracity of your positioning. This could happen especially if you have not personally overcome the positioning challenges.
