Aims and Objectives

The Tool Fair is at its 5th edition. Gathering the experiences of the previous editions hosted in France, Turkey, Spain and Portugal, the Tool Fair 5 in Italy has the aim to reinforce and to improve its effects on tools and participants. Tool Fair is becoming a crucial element of a long term strategy on tools development for non formal learning. For these reasons the format will be absolutely confirmed, focusing on key elements such as preparation, communication and support for a relevant commitment of participants.

  • To further develop the meaning and implications of tools within non formal education
  • To contribute through the TF to the overall SALTO strategy on tools quality development

Educational objectives
