E-safety – Learn E-Safety and Be Safe on Digital World

Project duration 2021-2023

With advances in science, technology is now an integral part of everyone’s life. Consequently, the effective use of digital technologies has come to the forefront of the competencies that future generations must have. However, it is possible to bring this competence to future generations if teachers are also competent.  The digital transformation and high performance digital skills are among the strategic priorities in the Erasmus + 2021- 2027 program guide.

Furthermore, in line with society’s changing workforce needs in the process of digital transformation, it has become a necessity for the new generation to be able to use technology consciously and effectively as individuals who produce information, not as consumers of it. At this point, studies and reports produced by national and international institutions have revealed that individuals must have certain skills such as information literacy, data literacy and ICT skills. This project’s aim is to create a safe internet environment for students by increasing digital competencies. In addition, the aim is to train better equipped educators and more conscious generations by sharing good practices in ICT technologies with project partners in European countries and transferring good practices to the schools. The skills, qualifications and competencies that teachers must have to train future generations are likewise those that have been framed by international and national institutions. Teachers’ digital competencies are important for their students’ ability to take advantage of new technologies.
