I-SECURE: Empowering education systems in information security

European project (Erasmus+)

Schools are best placed to teach children the digital and critical literacy skills to maximize opportunities and minimize risks. ICT security should therefore become a core dimension of the curriculum and teachers should receive specific training on this topic to empower them to develop measures for a safe use of ICT. Therefore, the project aims to develop an ‘information security culture' to increase the awareness in this field as a crucial step in the digitization process of the educational contexts. Moreover, the project will develop and test the 'I Secure Agent prototype course methodology and curriculum' and the 'Technology Enhances Learning I Secure eco-system', which will represent ready to use tools and instruments for supporting teacher training and empowering them in the field of information security in school education.

MedLit: Media Literacy and Social Change

European project (Erasmus+, Knowledge Alliance)

We live in a media society, where people know, what they know, only by their usage of different media channels. The quality of media communication combined with the usage of those media determines the quality of the internal social relationships and changes the culture of social cohesion, social participation, social attention and their policies. Therefore, media competence has to be valued as the social and cultural capital of society. The MedLit project wants to establish a transnational media literacy program, creating a network of European and Asian universities who exchange knowledge on the use of media to further social relationships and change. Together they will develop a MOOC on media literacy that teaches how to apply the media within their own social context for social change.
