Enhancing Digital Skills for Teaching Staff: The Digi Teachers Working Online Project

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.

Five tips for parents: How to build your child’s awareness and understanding of data protection

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.

Parents supporting the data protection of children and young people – initial survey charted competence, concerns and attitudes

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.

Micros, macros and digital badges: skills for working life

Recognition of prior learning in Finland is being developed as part of a parliamentary reform of continuous learning. Finns have solid experience in competence-based education thanks to reforms already carried out, but the work is by no means complete.
