TCA Description

Themes and goals:

    Information has never been as accessible as these days. This brings both great opportunities and great challenges. Especially young people can be very vulnerable to phenomena such as disinformation and fake news. At this international event we will focus on these challenges and on ways how international cooperation can help to mitigate them. 

    What can you expect at the event?

    • Emphasis will be placed on discussions among participants. They will engage in different workshops where they will have a chance to share their practices and also develop project ideas related to topics of media literacy and disinformation. 
    • Existing good practices in Erasmus+ and eTwining will be introduced.
    • Participants can also expect interactive workshops with representatives of institutions who are experts on the topic of this TCA. 
    • Draft programme can be found in the "Main info" section.

    Expected results:

    • Inspiration and motivation for new Erasmus+ projects
    • Finding new partners for projects
    • Acquisition of new tools for teaching young learners in the field of critical thinking and media literacy

    Title:
    Digitalisation in School Education- LTA
    Coordinator:

    Rationale and background:

    Due to rapid technological development and a growing need for sustainability, digital teaching and learning in education had already been in focus for a while prior to the pandemic – a paradigm shift towards digitisation in education was already underway. Current events have accelerated the paradigm, making way for a new normal. The Covid-19 pandemic and the physical distancing that followed have affected all walks of society, also education. In order to keep education running, educational institutions have had to quickly adapt to the situation. This has resulted in an unprecedented push to digital teaching and learning.


    Challenges:

    Digitalisation offers many opportunities, but also presents many challenges. Reinvention is not always a choice. The coronavirus is permanently reshaping the way we live, teach and learn. Some of the behaviours developed in crisis — including wide-scale digital adoption — will outlast the pandemic, well after restrictions on activity are lifted.

    Digital transformation in education is more necessary during this crisis, not less. Resources — both in terms of talent and money — will likely be constrained. Digital initiatives may need to be reprioritised based on relevance in the current environment. New problems and opportunities may come to light with greater urgency. Digital transformation roadmaps are needed. It is key to continue to experiment and innovate with digital solutions. It is vital to train target groups to use existing digital methods more effectively and create new ones as well.

    Planned Activities:

    The overall aim of this long-term activity is 

    • to encourage educational institutions across Europe to use lessons learnt during the Covid-19 pandemic, and create state-of-the-art and update existing methodologies for digital learning at individual, community and institutional level; and
    • to use them strategically in the future. 
    • thereby influencing Erasmus+ Programme and policy objectives at national and EU level

    We are planning to proceed the topic during the available time frame through seminars and research activites on three levels:

    Seminars:

    • 1st (individual) level: key actors, teachers, school staff, etc. – aiming to improve digital awareness, skills and competences, to enrich methodology, and to facilitate digital content creation as well as to encourage the use of existing platforms such as e-Twinning, etc.
    • 2nd (community) level: networking among teachers in the online space – aiming to facilitate communication and collaboration to be channelled into classroom teaching by learning from one another as well as emphasising the use of existing platforms such as e-Twinning, etc.
    • 3rd (institutional) level: school leaders, decision makers – aiming to upscale and support digital transformation into institutional level. 

      • Research:
        Through activities of the LTA 2021-2024, participants are supposed to learn about existing and tested practices that can be incorporated into their own strategies as well as identify possible gaps leading to further and better Erasmus+ projects and encourage the development of state-of-the-art solutions.

        LTA continues to welcome any NAs 

              • wishing to adopt Digital wellbeing programme realized by HU01 to implement in 2022/23 budget year as organizers
              • wishing to examine any other aspect of digitization in schools as an organizer, 
              • or co-organizer/co-financing partner in any other activity implemented by other national agencies, 
              • or of course as sending participants to any LTA-supported event.
              Expected results:

              The expected impact of the LTA in ascending order of policy effect:

              • Coordinating LTA in Digitalisation with research, events, study visit for quality projects in E+
              • Supporting Erasmus+ programme with high quality Digitalisation project
              • Exploiting E+ project results in the development of SE actors, institutions in the field of digitalisation
              • Upscaling  project results to policy level for improving E&T sector
