In the framework of the Young Digital Leaders project, Action Synergy has organised in its premises a training of facilitators. The training was organised by ISD, the organisation which has developed the curriculum and is responsible for the organisation of the project. The participants were staff members of Action Synergy as well as school teachers (including two school headteachers) who are going to be responsible for the delivery of the curriculum in secondary school students, other teachers and parents.
Action Synergy visited on the 6th of February 2019 the offices of Google in Brussels in order to participate in the kick-off meeting of the project Young Digital Leaders. The project, financed by Google, is aiming to promote digital citizenship, media literacy and critical thinking about the digital world in schools. It is aiming to educate young children on issues related with hate speech, cyberbullying, internet addiction, internet threats as well as other issues related with our digital life. The project is going to organise workshops in schools, workshops with parents as well as teacher training sessions. Action Synergy is going to coordinate its implementation in Greece during spring 2019.
