The “Show your own gold – a European Concept to Visualize and Reflect One’s Vocational Biography Using Digital Media” project is developing a model of intervention for vocational preparation based on helping young people use digital media to construct their vocational biographies. The project is developing an on-line environment which young people can use to showcase the competences they have acquired both formally and informally throughout their lives.
