Topic 2 – Specific interest of these tools and modalities

VIRTUAL SIMULATIONS

Virtual simulations can provide hands-on learning experiences that are difficult to replicate in a traditional classroom setting. For example, virtual simulations can be used to train Learners in areas such as automotive repair, welding, or medical procedures.

Online Training Courses

Online training courses can be used to provide Learners with access to vocational training in a flexible and convenient manner. Many vocational training organisations and universities offer online courses and certifications in areas such as IT, healthcare, and skilled trades.

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)

AR and VR can be used to create immersive learning experiences that allow Learners to practise vocational skills in a safe and controlled environment. For example, VR can be used to simulate high-risk situations in fields such as firefighting and emergency medicine.

Learning Management Systems (LMS)

LMS can be used to deliver vocational training materials and track learners’ progress. LMS platforms allow educators to create and manage online courses, assign homework and quizzes, and track learners’ engagement and performance.

Video Tutorials

Video tutorials can be used to provide step-by-step instructions for vocational tasks and procedures. For example, YouTube channels dedicated to automotive repair or construction can provide Learners with access to expert instruction and guidance.

Gamification

Gamification can be used to make vocational learning more engaging and interactive. For example, online games and simulations can be used to teach Learners about financial literacy, entrepreneurship, or project management.
