Digital citizenship skills for young generation
European project partners meeting
Digital citizenship skills are essential for youth development in the digital era. These skills are essential for interpreting information, expressing oneself through digital media, communicating in the digital world and staying safe while online. The Digital Citizenship Education Expert Group of the European Commission (COE 2016) divided the online activity into 10 digital domains for today’s digital world.
- Access and Inclusion
- Learning and Creativity
- Media and Information Literacy
- Ethics and Empathy
- Health and Wellbeing
- e-Presence and Communications
- Active Participation
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Privacy and Security
- Consumer Awareness
In 2019, our team from Constanta initiated a European collaborative project to develop course materials and practical applications for these skills. Colleagues from Germany, Greece and Cyprus joined our initiative and we set up an innovative learning environment for teaching and learning digital citizenship skills online: https://courses.trainingclub.eu/
On Friday, 3 of September, we had the great pleasure to welcome our partners and friends Xenofon, Anna, Daria and Arntd, for the first face-to-face transnational project meeting.
Together we tested the newly established MOOC platform which allows free of charge registration, course reading and quizzes solving. On successful completion of the tasks, users get recognition and can download their certificate of course completion.
The next stage is dedicated to transferring all courses in online learning environment for further piloting. Thus, young people accessing the online courses will develop values, attitudes, skills and knowledge to use the digital tools of today and tomorrow to participate in shaping and creating the future.
