i-hubs Innovative Practices – i-hubs practices are compiled in collaboration with 'Skills for innovation hubs' project partners and are based on the concept of innovation as outlined in UNESCO-UNEVOC's Innovation Framework.
Promising Practices – TVET practices from around the world that have been implemented to address emerging challenges and to contribute to improving TVET teaching and learning in an inclusive way.
As TVET prepares students for their professional life, it should reflect the digitalization of work through vocational education that includes exposure to authentic activities encountered in the workplace. In this context, the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET) explores how virtual reality can be utilized as part of the teaching process to provide situation-based education and training for various professions. One example showcases how horticultural teachers use Virtual Reality Glasses to allow students to plan gardens with the help of modern technology. Using virtual reality technology allows students the opportunity to create and implement landscaping designs, including placement of trees, shrubs, and plants, and to simulate different seasonal effects for their virtual landscape.
