UP-SKILLING OPERATORS
FOR SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

2021-2-IT01-KA210-VET-000048190

La nostra missione

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted the educational sector, accelerating the process of digitalization of the educational offer of a large majority of schools in Europe. School Institutions and the wider education sector have a great role to play in equipping students with tools that make them more successful in managing their online lives, as a means of ensuring their personal wellbeing and avoiding the related risks .

While the development of digital skills has been focusing primarily on how to technically operate technologies, now it became an important task for the school system to develop skills to limit and channel this use. Schools can be major players in the development of a critical and balanced use of the media in daily life, that is to say of a status of digital wellbeing.

This project aims, through the activities produced as part of the project, to equip teachers with good practices to promote digital wellbeing at school.

In addition, the project aims to raise the awareness of high school students regarding their digital wellbeing, in an attempt to improve it.
