Scope

DIGCIT is an Erasmus+ strategic partnership of 4 European NGOs. We got together to promote digital citizenship through youth work. Digital citizenship aims to provide the individual with the values, attitudes, skills and knowledge to use the digital tools. Thus, they will participate in shaping and creating the future.

During the project, the partners will develop:

  • Digital Citizenship MOOC Canvas and Instructional Design
  • Educational Materials for digital citizenship
  • Multilingual MOOC for youth personal development in the field of digital citizenship education

In this context, we are assembling an international Youth Advisory Board (YAB) which will consist of 8 young people from 4 European countries (2 per country). The YAB is needed to bring youth close to the project. In essence, YAB members will help project experts to understand the needs and wants of the young people. Also, they will test the educational materials and the online platform.
