Aim of research

Increased motivation in education is a key factor in reducing dropout – students are caught before they start to consider quitting school, and more students take and pass the qualifying examination. Granted that more students complete their education in the long term, early intervention and new collaborative solutions will lead to getting more people into employment, while a number are already working. This will have a direct long-term impact on the future use of health and welfare services in the community.

The main goal is to test and study a new working method that uses immediate feedback via smart phones, tablets and laptop as an early input factor that reduces dropout in vocational training and can have a long-term direct effect on the use of health and welfare services.

This includes the following goals:

  • Increased motivation: documenting the change in the students' attitudes towards being more motivated to learn and learning more
  • Better grades: provide students with increased academic skills in basic subjects and thereby boost access to apprenticeship institutions
  • Reduced dropout: testing new collaboration solutions that reduce difficulties at an early stage in the practice period that are a result of limited capacity for follow-up on behalf of training body and/or training coordinator at the very enterprise
