WORKSHOP: Where now for Citizenship Education in the Digital Age?

Digitisation and its impact on citizenship education – Perspectives from the Eastern Partnership Countries

A workshop organised by

Alina Cebotarenco, Eastern European Network for Citizenship Education (EENCE)

The constantly growing digital environment and its impact on the traditional aspect of education will be the focus of this workshop. Participants will discuss how digitalising our education might impact pupils’ adaptability to after-school ”life requirements”. The session will be split into three subtopics:

  • Cybersecurity – Debating the idea of ”digital human rights”, digital traffic and data privacy.
  • Global Empathy – How is this topic perceived in different parts of the world, especially in Eastern European Countries? Discussing diversity, globalisation, non-biased views and ”culturally” veritable information.
  • VR, AR and AI – How can we better reach people with special needs in a fast-paced, digital world?

These aspects will be analysed exemplarily looking at experiences from EaP countries. It will also be discussed how transnational collaboration could help to develop sustainable structures of non-formal education in these countries.
