Abstract

PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations // This paper aims at filling the gap of lack of research on the use of digital tools to teach in the vocational sector. It presents the findings of the application of the Digital Education Leadership Training in Action (C-DELTA) project for the digitalisation of the vocational education and training at the Mauritius Institute of Training and Development (MITD). Implementation of C-DELTA is in line with the Technology Acceptance Model (Davis et al., 1989) and the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2) (Venkatesh et al.,2012). Action research has been used. The data collected has been analysed using both qualitative and quantitative techniques. A significant improvement in performance has been noted among those who adopted the digital shift. The learners were motivated to learn differently. This paper proves that the digital shift is possible in vocational training for the benefit of the students provided that the key ingredients are in place like an effective training of the trainers, a robust online platform, and active participation of the learners. // Paper ID 0646
