DIGIT/ERACY

E-learning

1-6 October 2021 | Bulgaria

Digit/eracy is 6 days TC for social actors as the driving force in the youth sector to gain practical competences for exploring the topic of Digital Literacy, Critical Thinking and Media influence.

Digit/eracy is 6 days TC for social actors as the driving force in the youth sector to gain practical competences for exploring the topic of Digital Literacy, Critical Thinking and Media influence on the young people for their further development as significant players of the society, future change makers and social influencers. 

The training gives the skills, knowledge and attitude to raise the understanding how the media and modern digital tools influence our social lives and especially the decision making of young people, including NEETs and young people with fewer opportunities on local and European level. 

This training is based on many researches made in the past few years among European statistics based on the Digital competence and level of digital literacy. What does it mean for the young people today? How much do they believe and trust what they read on the internet? The Online media is making a lot of speculation based on unclear messages and research. We have faced the fact in 2020 that not everything that is published on the internet can be trusted. Where are the borders of the youth's beliefs and trust? Is propaganda always something bad? The situation after the global pandemic only had the chance to show once more the very urgent need to be careful and aware in the digital world which we are creating. 

MAIN GOAL

This TC aims to unveil the question of what we can trust and what not in Online Media and how Critical thinking can help us to build better understanding of the civic sector and civic movements. Young leaders have the power to be influential to their peers and it is coming with a great responsibility. How do they see this responsibility through their online actions and digital behavior? What is behind the blue screen and how it affects our lifestyles, community and social behaviour are just a few of the questions that will be tackled during this training. 

OBJECTIVES

The participants will know better what is included in the Digital Competence as a valuable source of Digital Literacy and how to prevent themselves and their peers the fast spreading of misleading information. With the learning by doing methods, we will recheck again the critical and analytical thinking which is crucial for us as civic players. We will come across with “white” and “black” propaganda messages to show once again the power of the narratives. During the training a strong focus will be given to social media as a mediator between generations and different groups from the society today.
