As teachers and parents ‘we need to strengthen children’s and students’ critical thinking and media literacy, so they can judge and overcome the ever-present threats of fake news, cyber bullying, radicalisation, cybersecurity threats and frauds.’ (COM 2018).
Emphasys Centre participates in a challenging new Erasmus+ Project (DIMELI4AC) in partnership withANT1.com.cy (Cyprus) aiming to promote digital and media literacy for active citizenship among primary school pupils through games-based learning. Together with another four distinguished organisations from Europe, the Leibniz Universität Hannover (Germany), the Lifelong Learning Platform(Belgium), the CCS Digital Education (Ireland) andEllinogermaniki Agogi (Greece) we cooperate to create the innovate DIMELI GAME.
The consortium works closely to provide various blended learning opportunities that will empower young students to become responsible, critical, global citizens for the digitalized and connected world we live in while safeguarding democracy and common values.
The kick-off meeting of the project was organized on the 21st and 22nd of January 2019 in Cyprus.
