The Learning Layers project has brought into picture new ways of using digital media, web tools and smartphones in the context of work and workplace learning. At the BAU-ABC training centre (Construction sector at Germany), the trainers themselves have launched their blogs and brought their apprentices to demo sessions on the Learning Toolbox. The apprentices have greeted this with enthusiasm. They and their companies have now new prospects for using these tools for working and learning – not as distraction and waste of time. From this perspective the trainers are keen to take further steps forward in piloting.
