Europe’s role in the digital transformation
Europe is crucial when setting the course for the digital future. The Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act will change the Internet for the better in the long term. Digitalisation also plays an important role in education and training policy.
Holistic pedagogy of ‘the digital’
The perspective of Education for Democratic Citizenship in particular can make an important contribution to a European, people-centered, democratic and at the same time innovative path of digital transformation. The new handbook aims to show how such a pedagogy of ‘the digital’ in non-formal education and in the context of lifelong learning can support these goals. Learning about, with and for digital transformation.
What can we do?
To this end, we would like to share perspectives of networks, practitioners, and the digital civil society.
