“Absolutely great and amazing.”
“Consolidating information. Like a last part of a lesson.”
“Learned to make use of plugins.”
Three feedbacks of the three participants who got the chance to attend a more than two hours webinar on how to create a wiki. Hold by Anna Dobrowska from CosmoCode, she explained the colleagues from our consortium how to create pages, manage the admin section and the navigation, and introduced in the world of plugins for this wiki. An inspiring, rich of content, and encouraging learning experience!
“I feel more literate to create a website.”
“A very, very nice description of the necessary steps.”
“I got a global image on wordpress websites, pages, posts, plugins, menus.”
“A good example of distance learning.”
Four feedbacks on the internal webinar about building one’s own website with participants from Focsani/Romania, Málaga and Berlin. The idea of sharing this knowledge came during the project and results from a raising interest in the world of digitalisation and the wish of being not only a consumer but also a producer of content. The three-hours interactive webinar encompassed basics like developing a website’s concept in the beginning (idea, aims, target groups, main messages, etc.), writing draft texts, respecting authors and photographers rights, and others. In the practical part were shown the world of designs/themes, how to create a page and a post, how to translate them, and what should be taken into consideration when arranging the menus. Some plugins were presented. A separate part was dedicated to the page builder elementor. The main aim was to stimulate motivation and to leave only a small place for the fear…
… to do it oneself.
What is it about?
We are experiencing a world in transformation. This includes digitalisation. The corona pandemic is increasing the use of digital means for communication and business. This is not only a technological change, it also affects the individual’s behaviour, the ways of living together, society and politics. To understand the new, to meet it confidently, to develop digital maturity is a learning task for everyone. Hence this Wiki.
Who is this platform for?
Adult educators and European citizens with an interest in society, politics and the future.
What do we offer?
We understand digitalisation as a process that presupposes and promotes technological change, brings change for the whole society and is politically framed. Digital literacy does not mean adapting to technological change in the best possible way only. Acquiring technological knowledge and skills goes along with developing an awareness of the various dimensions of digitalisation and to ask how it can be shaped so that digitalisation serves the well-being of all. To this end, we offer various considerations. Moreover, the contributions contain descriptions of formal and non-formal training methods. They were tested in joint workshops to be applied in adult education.
The authors are adult educators from Germany, France, Romania and Spain. The idea of this cooperation is combining our different competences as IT teachers, engineers, psychologists and social scientists and work with both formal and non-formal methods for adult education.
