The multiplier event of the European project Erasmus+ DISK- Digital Immigrants Survival Kit was held on Friday, May 14, 2022 at the Istituto Tecnico Industriale-ITIS “Enrico Mattei” in Urbino.
The project aims at promoting the digital literacy of digital immigrants, those who are unfamiliar with the Internet and technology in general and who want to take an active part of the digital society. After introducing the project structure, main objectives and DISK partnership (Italy, Sweden, Portugal, Greece and Austria), Training 2000 illustrated the project Moodle platform by making students explore the training material created by the partners.
Key concepts such as privacy and device safety, fake news and online data validation, digital communication and netiquette were discussed by the participants giving rise to a debate on the use of the most popular technological tools and the generational gap between digital natives and non-natives.
The 15 DISK modules are designed to support learners in exploring the topics mentioned and accompany them in a learning process that has as reference the DigComp 2.1, or the Framework of Reference for digital competences of citizens, prepared by the European Commission.
