On this page you will find information and links to the results and outputs of the EDIFY-EDU project.
The Finnish Information Society Development Centre (TIEKE) coordinated the Digiagent project in 2022-2023. The project gave small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) access to a digital agent or mentor, who assisted them in developing their operations.
The Digi Teachers project is a collaborative effort between several European organizations, dedicated to training teachers of students with special needs. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shift to online education highlighted the urgent need for special education staff to enhance their digital skills. With DigCompEdu as a point of reference, the project responds to the challenge by developing a syllabus, a training course and a toolkit for teachers.
The DiyKS project promotes digital competences among micro and small enterprises (SMEs), associations, and various communities operating in Central Finland.
The EDIFY-EDU project responds to shifting work life needs by developing equality, diversity, and inclusion competences of business managers and management students. An online seminar in September showcases good practices from various European countries and addresses future competence needs.
Children do not pick up data protection awareness and skills by themselves. In addition to early childhood education and care, schools and other entities that deal with and serve children, parents also have a major role in building awareness and competence in their children.
The initial survey for the GDPR4CHLDRN – Ensuring data protection in hobbies project was carried out in November and December 2022. The survey charted the data protection competence and attitudes to personal data processing of children and young people aged 13–17, their parents and the clubs and associations that organise leisure and hobby activities. The survey also sought to identify the data protection issues for which the target groups especially wanted support from the project.
The GDPR4CHLDRN project provides information about the protection of personal data and data protection rights to children, young people and their parents. Materials targeted at them as well as icons that clarify concepts related to data protection will be developed in the project. In addition, a toolkit to support compliance with data protection legislation and its application will be created for associations and hobby clubs that organise hobby activities for children and young people.
The project addresses the skills gap of Management education with regards to competencies on equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). The project will facilitate skills for management students and managers in medium-sized companies, to respond to the societal transformation by setting up a system for skill assessment, learning offer and validation and recognition.
The Digi Teachers project helps VET teaching staff improve their digital skills and competences with a strong link to pedagogy. Teachers enhance their capacity to implement online education, support their students’ digital skills and network with European colleagues engaged in special education.
The My Data Secured – raising youth awareness of their EU-ratified rights project helped 14 to 21-year-olds and youth workers to keep their data secure.
