How do we develop and change the technological literacy of vocational/profession-oriented education?

The project is expected to improve VIAs understanding of technological literacy in a profession/vocation-oriented practice as well as to contribute to the development of competence profiles for both students and teachers. This will create the opportunity to educate students with an increasingly strong digital profile.
