Online Training on Digital Competences
Digital Competences and Critical Thinking - Solutions for Adult Education
Never before has access to knowledge been as easy as it is today, and never before has it been possible for so many people to inform themselves comprehensively. But simultaneously with this democratisation of knowledge, a danger has also emerged that threatens to permanently infiltrate and damage our societies. In a time when everyone can be not only a receiver but also a sender of news, it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish serious from dubious news. The flourishing of conspiracy theories in the current Corona pandemic is a frightening example of the subversive power of fake news and disinformation campaigns.
» Adult education plays an important role in the building of resilience for our societies. «
In a series of events, we discussed, together with international partners and interested participants, various aspects of this situation with renowned experts and discovered possible solutions that we can implement in our adult education practice. On five consecutive afternoons, we examinated the most important aspects that we have discovered in our European project group. The international approach was particularly enlightening, because similarities and differences will help us to be aware of our own situation, but also offered the possibility to learn from each other. Registration for the individual events as well as for the whole series was free of charge. Each event started at 15:00 CET and last two hours.
