Screening session

Presentation

Screenings:
Screening of Conspi-Hunter a documentary on Conspiracy Theory by Spicée, France
This documentary shows what happened when a fake conspiracy was created and disseminated via the internet. The idea for the documentary was inspired by what happened in the immediate aftermath of the Paris terror attacks in January 2015. This documentary is used in French classrooms to encourage discussion and awareness raising amongst young people about the need to exercise critical thinking about rumours and messages on the internet.

Screening of WHAT WEE ARE video materials by Alessio De Marchi, Italy
WHAT WEE ARE is a multifaceted multimedia socio-cultural project aimed at raising awareness on issues to do with e-waste and responsible use of raw materials. During WHAT WEE ARE workshops students create sculpture, art and videos, examples of which will be shown during this screening.

BE Aware!

Master Class
Growing Digital Citizens

(Maximum participation 25)

When we talk about digital citizenship we mainly refer to two concepts: the digital world, that is fast-changing and over-present in our life; and citizenship, which reminds us of countries, nationalities, rights. What are we then referring to with the notion of ‘digital citizenship’? During this class, we will explore the controversial aspects of digital citizenship and its implication for education, arguing how and why education systems should consider growing digital citizens rather than teaching digital skills.

Facilitator: Anusca Ferrari, European Schoolnet
