  • In line with European strategic priorities, the project will provide participating organisations with a set of tangible innovative and high-quality results to address the key role played by netiquette in adult learners’ daily lives, educational settings and the workplace. And it will also tackle common needs and challenging issues that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis in the participating countries, which uncovered the centrality of adult education and lifelong learning to foster digital readiness.
  • Netiquette+ envisages to promote low skilled adults’ and adult learner’s critical purposeful use of digital technologies and meaningful participation in democratic societies.

  • Considering the challenges and opportunities arising from digital transformation and the persisting inequalities and barriers constraining adult learners proficient, confidence and responsible usage of digital technologies, the Netiquette+ project objective is twofold:

    1. To provide participating organisations with a set of tangible results to support adult educators in the process of mainstreaming and transferring relevant knowledge and skills on netiquette;
    2. To foster low skilled adults’ and adult learner’s awareness, knowledge and skills to take part in the digital society critically, consciously and responsibly.
  • The Netiquette+ project tackles a strategic priority for Europe and a challenging issue for all participating countries: the low-skilled adults and adult learners’ capacity to engage positively, critically and responsibly with digital technologies, through the provision of netiquette skills and competences. Therefore, for the 9 partner organisations, from Czech Republic, Portugal, Germany, Cyprus, Greece, Belgium, Spain, France, Turkey) this project within the Erasmus+ programme is a unique opportunity to address a common gap, to exchange knowledge, experiences and practices, which are key to foster transnational cooperation and innovation, as much as to broaden the transferability and sustainability of the project results.

    Most importantly, such collaboration is key to conceive a set of tangible Pan-European innovative Adult Education
    results, tailored to empower adult learners for them to become active digital citizens.

    Furthermore, adult educators will also be better prepared to guide adult learners throughout their learning process and to better advise them about the adoption of suitable standards of conduct in the digital arena.
