Course description

Developing digital citizenship is important for schools and educators. This course includes two parts: the first one focuses on digital skills and the second one on online safety. How to support the development of a wide range of digital skills that ensure young people leaving school have the skills required by the labour market and by an increasingly digitized society? At this course the participants will focus on such digital skills and tools and resources that are available to them. The course will also focus on what the increased use of ICT means for eSafety in the classroom. The participants will explore answers to this question and will learn how to manage issues such as privacy, personal safety and well-being online, and how to get students to engage with these issues and their own personal safety proactively.
