Exploring the world of AI and how it can benefit the youth work, but also intercultural learning and partnership building. That’s how we can summarise experience of our two team members, who attended Erasmus+ training Carpe DIEM! (Digital Innovation in Educational Methodology) organised by Associazione InCo – Molfetta APS from to 10 to 16 October, 2023. It was a project carried out within their KA1 Erasmus+ Accreditation.
The coordinator of the project has created the Booklet which provides a information about partners, methodology and summary of all the training activities implemented within the training, and various useful digital tools that can benefit youth workers.

The AI presents challenges, but also opportunities and therefore it’s important for youth workers to be able to be prepared for them and move activities for young people forward. Carpe DIEM! Participants got familiar with the EU’s AI Act which is currently in making and brainstormed on how AI can help solve real-world challenges that concern youth.
The whole event was also a tool fair. Creative mind maps on Padlet, ChatGPT, INEDNET Onboarding programme, DiGi YOUTH, Educaplay, H5P, Miro, Delve, Canva, Kahoot, Mentimeter, Socrative, or Worldwall are the digital helpers for youth workers and participants shared how to use them effectively.
Carpe DIEM! was also about discovering captivating streets of Molfetta during tour guided by Luigi and becoming ‘locals’ for a while with INDI. The participants also immersed into Italian culture when preparing delicious orecchiette pasta thanks to team of Aria di Mare and preparing dinners in houses of local families.
Molfetta is a synonym of learning, inspiration, vibrant culture, warmth, unforgettable experiences, and friendships!
