Designing Age-appropriate, Process-oriented and Interactive in-company further training in SMEs through the use of AR- technologies (API-KMU)

December 15th, 2020 by Daniela Reimann

The aim of the BMBF-funded research project “API-KMU” is to enable age-appropriate, process-oriented and interactive further training in existing companies and the securing of experiential knowledge with the help of concrete approaches and methods or through a learning and tutor system by the SMEs themselves. As a result, companies will be able to proactively cope with demographic change and digitalisation-induced challenges at various levels. Concrete results of the joint project are

  1. A process-oriented tutoring system, that addresses the learning and competence requirements of older employees, 2
  2. A further education approach with a toolbox for the diagnosis, implementation and management of in-company qualification,
  3. A practical training concept that enables companies to proactively meet the challenges of demographic change and digitalisation. Practical deployment concepts that enable SMEs to identify further training needs, to design company training programmes that are age-appropriate in terms of work and processes, and to secure experiential knowledge,
  4. Modified work processes in the partner SMEs in which workplaces offer more ergonomics for age-appropriate work and are thus also suitable for part-time work.
    Approach: Firstly, processes, technologies, tasks and necessary competences in the application scenarios (1) processing of natural stones, (2) window production are recorded by means of work analysis (BAG analyses), video retrospective interviews and field observations in order to derive criteria for age-appropriate, process-oriented and digitalIe further training. Based on this, work environments and interfaces of human-machine interaction are designed in an age-appropriate way using the criteria of work conducive to learning, as well as the approach to passing on experiential knowledge and the tutor system. At the same time, based on subject- and work process-oriented approaches, a further training approach including a toolbox for the survey, conception, implementation and evaluation of further training will be created. The tutor system, further education approach and methods of the toolbox will then be tested and further developed in a learning factory and a FabLab. Finally, they will be tested in practice in the user companies and the results will be generalised. The results of the joint project enable employees to acquire new skills and qualifications. Older employees benefit from higher employment opportunities through age-appropriate work processes. The project results to be applied, enable SMEs to proactively and resource-efficiently counter skill shortages and demographic change through age-appropriate training as well as through the systematic transfer of experience and knowledge. The result is a transferable toolbox that can be integrated at a low threshold due to its modular structure. This makes it possible to use the results in other sectors, for example also in machine production, the textile industry and food processing.

    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.
