Responsible European Digital Citizens
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The Internet is not just another communication medium is the medium of communication today. In advanced countries almost all people have a digital identity through their accounts at Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Hotmail, Instagram, etc. In the cyberspace people interact in various ways. For example, people can exchange ideas on various matters, work together, share files, etc. However, the cyberspace is a mirror of the real world and so nonpleasand things can happen. For example, pupils may exercise cyber-bullying, people may steal credit card numbers so to rob money, people may defame others for extortion, etc. Unfortunately schools do not teach pupils how to behave in their cyber-interactions. Thus this project aims to fill this gap to the extend this is possible. This project consists of a number of training events where both teachers and pupils will learn important things about problems that may be incurred to people when they use social media and other Internet communication tools with no caution. In addition, pupils will prepare videos, presentations, newsletters, that will inform their schoolmates about their activities as well about the ways one can use to protect herself. Teachers, on the other hand, will use the projects Web page, the project's Facebook page, etc. to present the activities of the project. In addition, they will present the activities of this project as well as the results and/or conclusions of the project to various local media (e.g., local newspapers and news portals). Also, a joint report on the responsible use of the Internet will be prepared at the final stages of the project. Since the project aims to study a variety of improper uses of the Internet and at the same time to propose ways to protect pupils and the general public from taking part in malicious practices, this partnership will prepare a scientific paper where it will describe their findings so that other partnerships and/or researchers can use them in any reasonable way. In order to ensure the availability of these findings to the global community, the paper will be posted to the arXiv server. The activities outlined above were designed so to develop the spirit of cooperation between people, the understanding of cultural and social differences and the recognition of cultural and social similarities between Europeans. This way, pupils will foster their European identity while learning modern and very useful things. At the same time, pupils as well as teachers will improve their linguistic skills and their ITC knowledge. The quality of the scientific work is guaranteed by the contact person of the Greek team who has a good scientific reputation and a good publication record. Monitoring and evaluation will be used in the continuous process of assessing the progress made towards stated objectives, so that gaps between the original project plan and the actual achievements can be identified and corrected. A detailed dissemination plan was designed to promote an ongoing exchange of information. In the creation of a shared resources section in our website and the posting of the outputs of the project activities it is anticipated that the project will help to raise awareness of the contribution of enhancing family, community and school values across Europe. Other institutions and stakeholders and people interested will get their information as well as open access to resources developed through the project via website and Web 2.0 networking tools created by the Partnership. Other channels of dissemination will also be used: newsletters, workshops, conferences, newspapers, and a paper. The visibility and sustainability of the project will be assured by all the dissemination activities (maintaining and updating the project website and the Facebook page). The paper will hopefully trigger future research in this field.
