Digital citizenship through language education
The project seeks to help learners become digital citizens and develop the capacity to use digital media critically, creatively and autonomously in several languages. The project will build on recommendations and guidelines from the Council of Europe and other international institutions as well as on national policies in order to develop a pedagogical framework and resources for use by language teachers.
Developing transversal competences in language education
In many education systems, the development of learners’ transversal competences has become an important focus of policy. Working on learners’ ‘transversal competences’ means developing their knowledge, skills, attitudes and values in areas such as global citizenship, education for sustainable development and media education, and also their intrapersonal and interpersonal ‘21st century skills’, which include co-operation, teamwork, critical thinking, and digital literacy etc.
