Techbyrinth App to become digital competent

Youth workers piloted the Techbyrinth App on the 15th of December, with the occasion of the fourth learning activity from the project Empowering youth to critically analyse fake news that took place in Romania, Constanta. Our association hosted this event, having as guests representatives from our partners: Solidaridad Sin Fronteras – Spain, Petit Pas – Italy, Inbie – Poland, and lastly, Cemea from France, who joined us online.

Representatives had the opportunity to teach the other participants new ways to combat Fake News, with help from the materials all of us developed throughout the strategic partnership. Thus, we discussed about fake news during COVID-19, we learned how to identify fake news, how fake news are disseminated, and many more.

In order for the participants to understand how the youth organizations can empower young people to detect fake news and disinformation, we invited them to test the results of our collaboration with European partners:

  • Participants piloted our Techbyrinth App which is an educational tool developed by Techbyrinth team. The App is available on iOS and Android and allows young people to identify the appropriate and inappropriate uses of technology and the internet and to improve their online behaviour and become more digital competent.

They have the occasion to exchange cultural experiences and enjoyed together the Romanian dinner, accompanied by our European Solidarity Corps volunteers.

Location: Hotel Dobrogea, Constanta

Date: 15 December 2021
