INFORMATION AND DIGITAL LITERACY AT SCHOOL. A BRIDGE TO SUPPORT CRITICAL THINKING AND EQUALITY VALUES FOR PRIMARY EDUCATION USING CHILDREN’S LITERATURE AND TRANSMEDIA (BRIDGE). Erasmus+ KA220 project (2022-2024)
Goal: The main purpose of BRIDGE is to create a transnational cooperation network for the exchange of good practices and resources for the joint promotion of information and digital literacy as a way of underpinning education in equality values in primary schools. This will enable key actors to make better use of digital technologies, develop innovative teaching, training and learning methods, promote non-formal learning and have quality resources to develop activities. The proposal is aimed for children in the middle primary school stage (aged 8-11 years) and intends to take advantage of the educational potential of children’s literature (especially picture books) and transmedia to engage with students about equality, diversity and inclusiveness and global citizenship, and as a door to information and digital literacy activities that help to foster inquisitiveness, informed, enquiry-led learning and critical thinking. The key role of school libraries will also be boosted, and overall the proposal aims to raise awareness among educational institutions and to provide good practices and implementation suggestions for primary school teachers and other education stakeholders.
