About IG4L2L

Inspiring Guide for Learn to Learn (IG4L2L) is an on-line L2L competence self-assessment tool in 5 languages (English, Estonian, German, Lithuanian and Spanish) that allows adult learners to evaluate their L2L abilities and provides recommendations for development of learning abilities.

According the Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning 2006/962/EC) “Learning to Learn is the ability to pursue and persist in learning, to organize one’s own learning, including through effective management of time and information, both individually and in groups. This competence includes awareness of one’s learning process and needs, identifying available opportunities, and the ability to overcome obstacles in order to learn successfully.”

IG4L2L is designed for self-development of adult learners, but it can be used also by teachers and trainers to encourage learners to develop their learning effectiveness. For learners whose Learn to Learn ability is low it may be difficult to achieve this without the teacher’s help. Here you can find more information regarding Learn to Learn competence and materials for training of teachers and trainers on how to use the instrument.

Following the Recommendation of 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning we consider Learn to Learn competence consisting of five abilities:

  1. Ability to motivate yourself and to develop your self-esteem.
  2. Ability to reflect learning experiences.
  3. Ability to manage your time.
  4. Ability to organize information.
  5. Ability to learn in groups.

Inspiring Guide for Learn to Learn is the result of the Erasmus+ project of Strategic Partnerships for adult education program (2016-1-LT01-KA204-023137).
