Learning Toolbox in Action – New project for Brunnenbauer apprentices in Rohrleitungsbau

June 10th, 2016 by Pekka Kamarainen

In my recent blog on our EU-funded Learning Layers (LL) project I described, how two colleagues from the training centre started building stacks in the Learning Toolbox (LTB) to make use of the toolset in their special areas. Thomas Weerts prepared a prototype stack “Arbeitssicherheit im Bauwirtschaft” (Health and Safety in Construction). Melanie Campbell prepared a prototype stack “Mobi Pro EU” for a transnational mobility scheme that in bringing groups of Spanish apprentices to get apprentice training in construction companies in Germany. (We will get back to both themes in a short while. This blog reports on a similar stack-building session with another Bau-ABC colleague, but with more rapid steps to implementation in practice.

Linking the trade Rohrleitungsbau into piloting with Learning Toolbox (LTB)

The aim of my working session with the Bau-ABC trainer Stefan Wiedenstried was to look, how to link the trades for which he is responsible (Strassenbau – road-building and Rohrleitungsbau – pipeline building) with the LTB.

However, we immediately noticed that the group that was practicing with road-building (Strassenbau) was the initial pilot group of the well-builders (Brunnenbauer) with whom trainer Lothar Schoka had started the LTB pilot in his area. Also, the same group had been the test group to whom Sanna Reponen from Aalto University had presented the LL tool AchSo when they were having training in metalworking (see my blog 24th of May 2016). Also, the same group had been interviewed by our colleagues from Innsbruck University (UIBK) on their use of LTB (See my blog 25th of May 2016). It just happened to be the case that this same group was scheduled for next week to be trained by Stefan in the trade of pipeline building (Rohrleitungsbau).

This gave Stefan a clue, how to start. He looked at the stack that was prepared for the kick-off project in which the apprentices first time used LTB in their own trade (Projektordner Schoka). Then he looked, how the mini-projects of metalworking were presented in another stack (Projektordner Wiechmann). And based on these examples he started to develop his own stack (Projektorder Wiedenstried) in a similar format as the previous ones.

The project  “Waagerechter-Verbau” takes shape as an LTB stack

The title of the scheduled project is “1-03-04 Waagerechter-Verbau nach Din4124, Einbau e”. The task is to prepare the grounds for laying pipelines for drinking water in exactly horizontal position according to the DIN norm DIN4124.

After the welcoming message Stefan created a collection tile that contains the project description and a set of photos that illustrate the task. He then tested the functioning of the chat function with Lothar Schoka, who also linked this stack to the ‘parent stack’ of this group of well-builders.

After all these preparatory measures Stefan announced the stack on the Facebook-page of his trade “Tiefbau im Bau-ABC Rostrup”, see below:

So, now we are looking forward to the group of Brunnenbauer apprentices bringing Learning Toolbox in action in yet another neighbouring trade – in Rohrleitungsbau (pipeline-building). We hope all the best and are keen on hearing more of their work.

    Racial bias in algorithms

    From the UK Open Data Institute’s Week in Data newsletter

    This week, Twitter apologised for racial bias within its image-cropping algorithm. The feature is designed to automatically crop images to highlight focal points – including faces. But, Twitter users discovered that, in practice, white faces were focused on, and black faces were cropped out. And, Twitter isn’t the only platform struggling with its algorithm – YouTube has also announced plans to bring back higher levels of human moderation for removing content, after its AI-centred approach resulted in over-censorship, with videos being removed at far higher rates than with human moderators.

    Gap between rich and poor university students widest for 12 years

    Via The Canary.

    The gap between poor students and their more affluent peers attending university has widened to its largest point for 12 years, according to data published by the Department for Education (DfE).

    Better-off pupils are significantly more likely to go to university than their more disadvantaged peers. And the gap between the two groups – 18.8 percentage points – is the widest it’s been since 2006/07.

    The latest statistics show that 26.3% of pupils eligible for FSMs went on to university in 2018/19, compared with 45.1% of those who did not receive free meals. Only 12.7% of white British males who were eligible for FSMs went to university by the age of 19. The progression rate has fallen slightly for the first time since 2011/12, according to the DfE analysis.

    Quality Training

    From Raconteur. A recent report by global learning consultancy Kineo examined the learning intentions of 8,000 employees across 13 different industries. It found a huge gap between the quality of training offered and the needs of employees. Of those surveyed, 85 per cent said they , with only 16 per cent of employees finding the learning programmes offered by their employers effective.

    RT @Tazman_London It took just under 6 years and 13,000 workers to build the Channel Tunnel. The total cost came at an eye-watering £4.65 billion which would be the equivalent of £12 billion in today's money. Track & Trace cost taxpayers 3 times that number. Let that sink in. #ToryCorruption pic.twitter.com/EIwJ18vBEj
