Understanding Europe has published its 2021 Educational Briefing entitled “Going digital together: pathways to inclusive citizenship education online”. It explores opportunities and challenges of digital (peer) education and summarises hands-on experiences gathered during the second year of the pandemic. The articles have been written by young European educators as well as by academics.
Which tools work for most young people? How can trainers create a safer space digitally? And how can we make our digital workshops participatory? What are tips and tricks for trainers who are not yet experienced in providing digital courses? The first part of this Educational Briefing deals with exactly these questions and provides first practical insights.
The second part focuses on skills and knowledge necessary to navigate and participate in the online world. How to evaluate information, to interact, to share content, or to respond to hate speech online – these are all topics for which young people need room to share, reflect and debate. The articles show how this can be achieved in a (non-formal and formal) educational setting.
