Safety Toolkit for Consumer and Personal Data Protection for the Elderly during Internet Use

Studies estimate that by 2060 at least one in three Europeans will be over 65. The European Commission argues that digital technology can help older people to stay healthy, independent and active atwork or in their community for longer and it helps to improve our quality of life. Since the Digital Single Market strategy has been adopted, several studies have identified the lack of digital skillsamong the elderly.

Therefore, there is a strong need to educate EU citizens and the elderly on how to access and engage in online activities by experiencing high level of consumer and personaldata protection. Specifically, the elderly generally lacks awareness of current security threats, and remain under-educated in terms of applying appropriate controlsand safeguards to their computers and networking devices.

The primary target group of e-Protect project which is elderly people (people aged 65+) will be empowered and develop their self-confidence when using the internet and thus supportthe improved integration in the labour market and society.

SWPBS presented at an international Positive Behaviour Support conference in Lithuania

Our project SWPBS – Building School-Wide Inclusive, Positive and Equitable Learning Environments Through A Systems-Change Approach – was presented at the online conference, ‘Implementing a Positive Behaviour Support System in Europe and Lithuania: Good practice’. The conference took place on December 9th 2020 and was a great opportunity for professionals from the field of education across Europe to exchange ideas and share their knowledge and experience on the implementation of the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) system in schools.

Eliza Theofanous, who represented CARDET at the conference, explained the Experimental Design of the SWPBS project and provided a detailed description of its implementation. Mrs Theofanous presented indicative work of schools that currently participate in the project, giving an insight into the project to more than 250 teachers and stakeholders, who took part in the conference. Participants were also presented the material CARDET has created to support teachers during the COVID pandemic (lesson plans, online modules and videos). The conference was co-organised by the Lithuanian Ministry of Education Science and Sports, the Lithuanian Centre of Education for Blind and Visually Impaired People and the Department of Counselling for Children with Developmental Disabilities in Lithuania.

SWPBS is being implemented by a consortium of 11 partners in Cyprus, Greece, Romania and Finland. In Cyprus, the project is being implemented by the Cyprus Pedagogical Institute, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth in collaboration with CARDET and INNOVADE LI, with the participation of 32 primary schools across the island.

ENACTED held its 2nd partnership meeting

The partners of the ENACTED consortium, met online on November 10th and 11th 2020 for the project’s 2nd partnership meeting. During the two-days meeting, partners had the opportunity to discuss key milestones and to address future project challenges.

More specifically, the partners focused on the evaluation phase required in order to confine the list of inclusive education practices from CSO’s, grassroots initiatives, migrant-led initiatives, solidarity networks, etc. in partners countries but also outside at EU level. In addition, partners had a first glimpse on the ENACTED platform which was presented and launched.

The meeting was initially scheduled to take place in Greece, however, due to the outbreak of coronavirus the consortium decided to transfer it online.

ENACTED – European network of an active civil society for education and diversity – brings together a 6-party consortium from Italy, Greece, Cyprus, and Spain. The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme.

The DEHORS Interactive Map is now online

The DEHORS consortium is proud to announce the release of the Online Interactive Map of the project. Having completed two (2) workshops engaging pre-school teachers and experts from different European countries, together with some coordination meetings of the consortium, a map was developed comprising of eight (8) different areas. Those areas refer to the outdoor environment, which can be enhanced in order to be stimulating and inviting for children.

Different experts from the field of Early Childhood Education and Care, as well as landscape architecture, have contributed in the development of the map for its maximum impact. In addition, the map is also employing the ‘Evaluation Model of the 7 Cs (Herrington, Brunelle and Brussoni, 2017), which has been proven to be very beneficial for children’s academic and socioemotional development. Specifically, the 7 Cs refer to ‘Character, Context, Connectivity, Clarity, Chance, Change and Challenge’, which are all elements that should be taken into account when pursuing outdoors education.

As illustrated below, the eight (8) areas developed are the following: Structured Playzone, Relaxing Zone, Wild Area, Learning Pathways, Secret Places, Garden for all Senses, Outdoor Atelier and Meeting Places. Each area provides users with a definition and learning objectives, which are accompanied by relevant activities. The activities for each area have been pilot tested by pre-schools in Cyprus, Latvia, Italy and Sweden. In addition, the users can find relevant literature and the connection to four EU countries’ national curriculum. The next steps of the project include the development of a handbook for teachers and an online environment with Modules on Outdoors Education for pre-schools.
