INTOUCH (Labour Market in Touch; new non-routine skills via mobile game based learning) Project which is transferred to Turkey as INTOUCH-ICT Project, has been pointed out as one of the best Leonardo da Vinci projects 2010 – 2011 by the European Commission.
INTOUCH (Labour Market in Touch; new non-routine skills via mobile game based learning) Project (2010-2012) is a lifelong learning project which is placed under Leonardo da Vinci program, which is now under Erasmus+. The project’s aim was to develop modern technological ways of training skills for employees, especially those working in the service sector, using unused modern technology, such as smart phones and tablets. The selection of crucial non-routine skills was done after a survey carried out among employers in partner countries and a learning kit named INTOUCH learning tool-kit was developed and implemented. From the results from different ways of testing the effectiveness of this kit, INTOUCH project has proved to be an innovative approach enabling a new generation of workers to develop their crucial non-routine skills in a labor market orientated, flexible and technologically modern way.
