Activity 1: Research on non-formal education programs and good practices that promote digital citizenship and scientific literacy
Activity 2: Blended Mobility (BM) for Educators & Handbook creation\
Activity 3: Local INSTALL Challenges for Youth
Activity 4: Online Youth Competition
INSTALL is designed to take an inclusive and holistic approach to ensure access for disadvantaged youth, and help cultivate not just knowledge but also the soft skills & core competencies that they need to become active and ethical users of digital technologies, as well as scientifically literate, critically thinking citizens.
At the same time, technological and scientific knowledge progress at a great speed creates substantial challenges for the people working in the education sector. INSTALL aims to make an impact also by supporting educators keep up with the new challenges, and by creating a structure of continuous capacity building & professional, pedagogical development.
