Home » Projects » Higher Education and Research » Teachers 4.0 – Teachers 4.0 Digital Age

A project that aims to learn more about how to promote digital literacy and tackle misinformation in European classrooms!

Context

Digital literacy and tackling disinformation are among the top three digital skills needed for the 21st century. Teachers need to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to empower their students to think critically, make informed choices online and stay safe whilst continuously building their resilience in the digital world. Teachers 4.0 Digital is a large-scale capacity-building action for the initial training and continuous professional development of teachers across Europe.

Objectives

  • Development of a comprehensive curriculum that will guide teachers and educators in the ways they may teach their students the necessary skills to thrive in the digital age.
  • Design of a University course on the topic of combating disinformation and digital literacy: In addition to integrating elements of digital literacy into all initial teacher education courses, a specific course on combating disinformation, building resilience, as well as digital and information literacy will be developed as a separate course.
  • Development of an e-Learning platform for the upskilling of thousands of primary and secondary school education teachers and educators that will offer the Teachers 4.0 Digital course in a blended learning format in six European languages: Bulgarian, English, Greek, Italian, Polish and Romanian.

Activities

  • Seminars for in-service teachers on using the digital world
  • Training courses for university students on digital literacy and disinformation
  • Development of a digital platform
  • Development of policy recommendations

  • Update their knowledge on contemporary media used by children and adolescents,
