Period of Covid-19 pandemic (which is still ongoing) showed us our relative unpreparednes for total tranformation to digital environments. Although during 2 year period, we learnt how to use digital tools with relative ease, there is still lot to learn about digital world in which, lot of us, is „digital migrant“.

Digital tools, are only one of the layers that digital youthwork offers and is dealing with. Internet security, gamification, FOMO, social media, merger of digital and real world, AI and others are just some aspect of vast digital world that we are visiting on daily basis (with increased frequency). Young people are exposed to this world even more, as they are „digital natives“.

This training corse was created as iniciative in the beginning of Covid-19 pandemic as national training for teachers, educators and youthworkers in Slovakia. So far more than 15 trainings were carried out in 2 years period. During implementation of this training we found out that there is a need to provide similar format of training course in english so wider group of participants can join.

Thus networking activity ON/OFF was created. This training will offer insight into vast world of online threats and opportunities that anyone can use and learn about and will offer youthworkers and educators from different contries important conterporary skills, that are useful during online trainings and education, but are useful in offline evnironment as well.
