DIGITAL LITERACY

12-21 August 2021 | Corbeni, Romania

Digital literacy is a set of knowledge and skills of an individual, needed to find, use, analyse and produce information, content, using different digital platforms and technologies. Due to the technological advancement and the continuous process of digitization that marks the aspects of everyday life, good preparation in this regard should be part of the learning process of each person throughout the life.

Project Objectives and Learning Outcomes

Given these points, the aim of this project was to raise awareness of the importance of digital education.

While all this was going on, not only did we develop the digital skills necessary for professional and recreational activities among young people, but also we expanded our critical thinking and learned how to use the Internet in a safe and ethical way.

The activities within the project were designed in such a way as to lead to the fulfillment of the project objectives. During the project, we used non-formal educational methods in order to raise our digital literacy competencies. In other words, we had team consolidation games, introduction in the Erasmus+ program, and the Youthpass certificate, activities designed to draw attention to the content we publish in the online space, discussing ethical issues in technology development, the rights to personal data in the online environment etc.

Moreover, as seen above, we delved into alluring conversations regarding the technological future, smart vehicles and cities, and their implications on society, online security, E-health, cyberbullying, fake news, digital democracy along with other fascinating topics from the digital realm.

During each day we did energizers mean to increase our mood, as well as reflection and evaluation sessions in order to better understand and facilitate the learning process.

Despite the information we have learned, we enriched our digital competencies by creating digital products. Some of the project results consist of 20 info-graphics containing useful information about the topics we have discussed during the project.

Also, we have created some amazing videos that show our experience during the project as well as what we have learned.

Afterword

After each dinner, we were going to sleep, tired but full of happiness for the memories we created. The project was full of emotions, amazing people, learning, and things to always be remembered.

It was a fun and exciting experience, each night being completed by eating together all kinds of goods, like a family, and partying to traditional dances!
