02 Feb OUR DIGITAL VILLAGE – CO-DESIGNED DIGITAL EDUCATION IN RURAL AREAS
02 Feb, 2023
Rapid digital transformation has influenced education, work and life and the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted more the digital divide in some territories, especially between urban and rural areas, and the need for innovation in education to respond to these challenges.
For this reason, Our Digital Village aims to intervene in rural areas by promoting the acquisition of digital and transversal skills, preparing people to face the challenges of the future. It will do so by co-creating high-quality educational content that responds to the needs of the local context, while simultaneously ensuring the long-term transformation towards digitalization through active awareness raising on all levels of society.
Through self-analysis workshops, the intrinsic motivation to change will be explored, and the needs of each local context will be identified. These will be taken in mind while co-designing the educational materials, followed by a training for teachers and trainers to ensure their capacity to implement the co-designed activities with their learners. In the testing phase of the educational materials, ICT courses will enhance the competences of young and adult learners, while consolidating the newly acquired skills of teachers and trainers.
