Project description:

The main goal of this project is to increase the level of digital soft and the abilities of young people coming from communities with low level of access to digital education and training, by organizing an 9-day youth exchange in Gabrovo, Bulgaria to increase digital competencies, level of communication, cooperation, teamwork, conflict management, emotional intelligence and organizational skills among 36 participants aged 18-30, coming from Bulgaria, the Republic of Northern Macedonia, Italy, the Czech Republic, Croatia and Serbia.
The main activities of this project include: discussions, interactive presentations, outdoor activities, games and intercultural evenings. The working methods are selected entirely in the context of non-formal education and aim to develop creativity in participants, their communication skills, teamwork skills and awareness of personal potential for expressing active citizenship through the Internet, digital technologies and social media. Among our chosen informal methods are: “icebreakers”, “energizers” “simulations”, “role play games”, “theater play”, “metaphorical presentations”, “SWOT analysis”, “World Café”, “learning by doing” methods for summarizing, work in small groups and “feedback”.
Participation in this project will enable young people and their leaders to develop basic digital competencies and gain new ideas for starting their own self-learning, which is possible thanks to Internet resources and modern technological development. Young people will take part in special modules that will help them to integrate into digital life and online activities and ICT training courses.
Managing the presence in cyberspace and the ability to implement effective online communication are becoming an important requirement in the workplace, especially during the COVID epidemic. Rapid adaptation to new technologies, services and environments is already seen as an extremely valuable skill by employers and can facilitate both formal and non-formal learning.
Most services are text-based, which implies literacy skills, including interpretation, assessment and contextualization. All participants will have an increased level of their hard and soft technological and digital skills, will be able to communicate effectively with the most popular software, process information from online sources to create influential and interactive presentations, create basic digital content such as videos and posts on social networks and will be aware of the threats in the online environment, knowing the methodology of action in these situations (antivirus programs; reporting of personal data abuse; cyberbullying and others).
