Teachers 4.0 Digital Age

Digital Literacy

Description

The Teachers 4.0 Digital Age project is a large capacity-building programme, which will provide the context, tools and means to ensure that teachers and educators across Europe will be adequately armed in the process of promoting digital literacy and tackling disinformation. 

 

Digital literacy and tackling disinformation are among the top three digital skills needed for the 21st century. Teachers need to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to empower their students to think critically, make informed choices online and stay safe whilst continuously building their resilience in the digital world.
