The paper is based on research undertaken in the project "A European Concept to Visualize and Reflect One's Vocational Biography Using Digital Media – Show Your Own Gold (Acronym)", funded under the European Commission's ERASMUS+ Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships (2014-2017). It aims to develop a European course design and its' application in 6 countries, in order to enable young, unemployed people to reflect and display their vocational and educational biography by creating media. The project intends to encourage self-awareness of young people, last not least fostering competencies for approaching the labor market. This is realized by creating meaningful biographical narratives using digital media. It is, realized through processes of creation, using diverse media to visualize strengths and competences. It includes a course design to facilitate the young reflecting about their learning and design processes as well as on their individual vocational perspectives. Target group are young unemployed participants in the wide field of pre-vocational education and training, vocational preparation courses, projects and measures in different European countries. In the paper, a scenario for initiating the development of a digital narrative for learning realized at the Gewerbeschule in Karlsruhe Durlach is presented and discussed.
