PLACEDU Consortium Releases the Digital Social Training Curriculum

18th of September, 2023


Part of the COVID-19 recovery encompasses a multi-faceted approach. As part of the PLACEDU Project, the partnership is proud to present the Digital Social Training Curriculum.

The training course curriculum is dedicated towards teachers in order to support their effort for social inclusion and community development during online education.

The development of the training started from the needs identified in the Ethnography for Digital by Digital research along with the good practices gathered on socially viable activities and its recommendations.

The main objective was to design a training Curriculum by defining and

developing the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies for the

innovative training on online education along with inclusive non formal

education methodology.

This is for teachers who want to know more, get trained, get involved and network in the online education sphere. We strive to overcome “lost” social and psysical environment’s aspects in distance learning.

The PLACEDU training curricula consists of 6 modules: Module 1. Professional Engagement; Module 2. Digital Resources; Module 3. Teaching and Training; Module 4. Assessment; Module 5. Empowering Learners and Module 6. Facilitating Learners’ Digital Competence.

Project Coordinator Žemartas Budrys stated: It is not enough just use digital tools, it is very important to understand what impact they bring on education process and its participants. Here, through Placedu curriculum, we address this carefully.

CSI’s project manager for PLACEDU, Foteini Papadopoulou, stated:

The Digital Social Training Curriculum consists of six modules designed to enhance online learning. It is critical to create tools that reflect the requirements of educators and have a positive impact on students as well as educators.
