Digital Natives Project has been terminated successfully,
The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership "We are all digital natives” stands for a new way of thinking about education and lifelong learning. In Europe, learners need to know how to act and live with digital reality. Younger users need to achieve digital responsibility. Older learners and workers need to be introduced to and made proficient in the navigation of the digital world in order to qualify them for jobs needed today. The biggest challenge to become and stay a “digital native” is faced by teachers and trainers in all education sectors, in formal and non-formal education. For them it will in future be increasingly important to keep pace with the latest digital methods and technologies in order to keep their curricula up to date. This project will therefore define and compare, publish and promote good practice examples of digital methods used in all education modes in Europe.
The aim of the project is to evaluate and define good practice of use of digital methods in different education sectors in Europe. In this way it can be ensured that everyone becomes a digital native. We will organize 5 transnational meetings, for every meeting each partner prepare and perform 2 good practice examples of digital methods- They will be documented in an internet database in all project partner language. At the end of the project a documentation with minimum 60 digital methods will be produced. Further on during the project, the project partners will print a number of handbooks on digital methods. An amount of 150 booklets will be printed. The printed handbooks will be made available for the libraries of schools.
The project will have different impacts. We expect the participants of the project to extend their knowledge on digital methods and how they are used in Europe. We expect participants organizations to professionalize and innovate their curricula through new methods. We expect the learner to be come more motivated to perform lifelong learning and we expect stakeholders to become more aware on the need to include digital methods in teaching and training.
On the long run the projects wants to support the aims of the Europe 2020 strategy – to involve more people in lifelong learning.
