  • think of your role in creating futures of learning, civic engagement and careers;
  • describe scenarios of possible futures;
  • create activities, playlists and badges for new learning pathways.

A playlist is an organised learning pathway with selected Activities.

You can choose which activities you want to include in a playlist, set their order of appearance and decide on mandatory and optional activities for completion.

Playlists enable learners to track their progress. They guide people through learning, civic or career pathways.

Follow the steps to create a playlist. You may use this worksheet to develop your ideas and design a playlist before uploading activities on the platform.

  1. Together with your team start by choosing a topic, interest, or competence for a playlist - learning pathway. Think about something which would be valuable, needed and demanded in your city or region.
  2. Define a clear goal that is realistic and linked to the activities you are proposing. Make sure it is achievable in a given context. Then connect the goal to a topic, interest or skills chosen.
  3. Add up to 5-7 learning activities that would be most interesting and beneficial to learners. Combine both digital and in-person experiences to increase engagement. Keep it light and dynamic, set a clear and realistic time frame.
  4. Test your playlist with potential learners to collect their feedback and
  5. improving the playlist accordingly.
