Online workshop: Bubble Trouble

Radionica 24.11.2022. | četvrtak American Corner Zagreb Početak događanja: 18 sati Lidija Šaravanja, Ivana Marinić
The workshop is intended for secondary school teachers and students who work with / are ‘digital natives’. Its purpose is twofold: 1) to raise the awareness about the difference between being digitally confident and being digitally literate and 2) to give the teachers motivation and ideas on how to integrate this issue into the curriculum and how to implement it in the classrooms or to provide students with tools for critical thinking online.
The workshop will offer answers to the following questions: How to create (and remember) a perfect password? How do AI and cookies we agree to form information bubbles? What are deepfake news? How to be introspective and sympathetic online? Digital literacy does not only include online safety, critical thinking and other related challenges, but also responsibility for one’s own emotional wellbeing and the emotional wellbeing of other people.
This kind of literacy is one of the basic 21st C skills necessary for living in the modern global and ‘glocal’ world as a free person and an accomplished member of society. We should all take on the responsibility for improving this skill.
