Students, Teachers and Parents invited to take part
in the CO:RE Project
Our team around work package 9, working with the school community in the CO:RE Project, is currently looking for
- students (aged 14 to 16)
- and parents
to participate in a European consultation series in which we will discuss the role of digital media in young people’s lives and how knowledge in this area can be brought closer to politicians.
If you would like to participate in one of these meetings please continue reading!
Europe-wide Consultation Series
In these consultation meetings, we want to hear your views on the role of digital technologies in young people’s lives. Discussions, amongst others, will focus on the opportunities and challenges these technologies provide, as well as on the question if and how knowledge about these issues should be brought to the attention of politicians.
We also want to collect your ideas on how to improve the CO:RE knowledge platform which is being developed by our project. This platform will gather and make available information about children’s and young people’s experiences online and how these experiences could impact them in positive or negative ways. We think that such a collection of information can be very useful for many people including schools and politicians.
The consultations take place online in form of an interactive workshop (~ 90 minutes) with approximately eight participants per group via a video conferencing system.
The consultations will be organised by researchers from European Schoolnet, a network of 34 European Ministries of Education, based in Brussels. European Schoolnet is CO:RE work package 9 leader. This work package focuses on matching the aims and objectives of the CO:RE Project to the needs of the educational sector.
Consultations in Portugal take place on 20 October, 18.00-19.30 CET (for students); and on 27 October, 19.00-20.30 CET (for parents; European).
If you would like to participate or have any questions, please send an email to Nike Retzmann (nike.retzmann [at] eun.org) including your name, contact email and school. If you are a student who would like to take part, please ask a parent to send this email on your behalf.
