Social Media in Internationalisation

With the idea of strengthening internationalisation strategies as a sign of identity and aware of the importance of preparing the VET students to function in a global context, two Spanish VET schools (San José de Calasanz College from Bilbao and IES Florez from Burgos) decided to create a blog to encourage students and VET professionals to be more international. http://mierasmusenfp.blogspot.com/
This blog was created initially to give visibility to Erasmus programmes at local level, encouraging people to be part of Erasmus+ programmes. In this blog al participant could give their feedback about international activities and the benefits of it.
After years of cooperation at national and European level, the blog went from a local level blog to a national blog, involving more than 25 different VET schools in Spain and including stakeholders and European schools.

OBJETCTIVES:
• Encourage VET education, and to make visible at international level.
• Encourage student to face their own limits and go out of their comfort zone, seeing the wonderful experiences of their classmates.
• Provide data base in countries and companies for other partners.
• Create a network of VET Centres at Spanish and European level that work in the international field from which no doubt many meetings and projects may arise in the future …

Target groups: VET students and VET professionals and stakeholders.
