The tested and reviewed learning content of the pilot course "Teaching agricultural informatics in agricultural vocational training" is published in the form of digital textbook (licensed under a Creative Commons Attribu-tion 4.0 International - CC BY 4.0) freely available for teachers and students alike.

The derived language versions will be local-ised to comply with the particular characteris-tics within target countries. See books here:

Starting the pilot training in both countries starts with a contact day. Teachers get acquainted with the structure of the course, the details of the implementation of the online training and the schedule.
In Macedonia the event was in 21/12/2018 with 20 participants.
In Hunagry the pilot starting event is in 15/02/2019 with more than 40 participants based on the pre-registrations.

The invitation to the programme organised by GAK on 5 April 2019 is available here: HU 

After finalization of the 3 modules of Teaching agricultural informatics in agricultural vocational training, pilot courses were organized in both target countries in Hungary and Macedonia in spring 2019. Read the following reports:

April 1, 2019 until May 6, 5 weeks, 20 teachers from seven VET schools across North Macedonia enrolled on the pilot course. Out of the 20 participants, 16 teachers from six different VET schools successfully completed the course.

25 February – 26 April 2019
Pilot course started with an information day in Gödöllő on 15 February 2019.
Altogether 46 people from different parts of the country attended the event.
In addition to presenting the project and the planned training, professional lectures were also given in the field of agricultural informatics, eg. Agromechatronics, Farming 4.0, Data Collection in Precision Agriculture, Precision Animal Husbandry.

For the first module, Teaching in the 21st century in Agricultural Vocational Schools, were lectures on web-based tools, flipped classroom model and methodological renewal of 21st century education. A total of 61 teachers from 22 VET schools in the country applied for the pilot training. The training was successfully completed by 51 of the teachers out of 61 participants from 22 VET schools.


And what is the vision of Europe’s farm machinery industry for Digital Farming?

See CEMA's Guide to Digital Farming.

Curriculum development has begun in the Agriteach 4.0 project, where full partnership is involved. Within the framework of the project, 3 modules will be developed, which will be available in the form of e-learning.

  • M1 Reinventing agricultural education
  • M2 European Strategies and initiatives of e-Agriculture
  • M3 Digital systems within Agriculture 4.

After the completion of the curriculum, pilot trainings will be followed to test the course in Hungary and Macedonia among vocational teachers, expected at the end of 2018.

Project objectives

1. A focused needs-analysis and comparative study

 A focused needs-analysis, and comparative study to identify the training needs by involving VET teachers and representatives of the beneficiaries - the agricultural companies.

2. Developing a standard competency framework

Developing a standard competency framework for agricultural workers and agricultural ICT practitioners aligned with EU standards such as the EQF and the e-Competence Framework.

3. Curriculum Design based on the CAPDM methodology

In this activity the experienced educational developments partners (CAPDM and ITS) will collaborate to produce a detailed description of the ICT competences exhibited through tasks involving workers in the agricultural companies.

4. Developing learning content for THREE MODULES
Developing learning content for THREE MODULES:
  • M1 Reinventing agricultural education
  • M2 European Strategies and initiatives of e-Agriculture
  • M3 Digital systems within Agriculture 4.0
5. Development of an online collaboration platform
 Development of an online collaboration platform and the implementation of the components for “Teachers for Farming 4.0” In this working phase the project will implement an e-learning system, based on the open source Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) software.
6. Piloting the “Teacher for Farming 4.0” course
Aim: To test, collect feedback and effect improvements based on the evaluation of the course by external participants.
7. Refining the syllabus and the course components

Refining the syllabus and the course components according to feedback from the participants.

8. Planning for valorization and sustainability

The aim of this Outcome is to ensure sustainability of the project in every partner country, not just the two target countries. In the first activity the project will produce a digital textbook for all agricultural teachers, and based on the content developed during the project.

Project Description

Connecting VET Teachers to Agriculture 4.0​
Guide agricultural VET teachers in the renewing of their teaching methods by providing them a freely available online course “Teachers for Farming 4.0” based on a networked learning pedagogical model. The project will integrate the networked learning methodology of a successful Leonardo project (Tenegen) with the pedagogical innovations of learner-centred methods such as the Creative Classroom (CC) and the Flipped Classroom (FC) model. The learning environment and teaching model applied by this LdV project is aligned with the pedagogical innovations of the ET 2020 framework, focusing for the development of 21st century skills, creativity, and the digital entrepreneurship of students.
