“Digital competences in NFE” is going to be a training course organized in Osterholz-Scharmbeck in Germany which will include 36 young workers from 12 different countries: Romania, Czech Republic, Italy, Turkey, North Macedonia, Greece, Spain, Poland, Croatia, Serbia, Lithuania and Germany.
Digital technologies and social media play an integral role in modern society so much so that social media has become the most influential media of the 21st century. A research made about this topic “A decade of digital dependency” shows that average adults spend more than 24 hours per week online, while one fifth of adults spends more than 40 hours per week on internet. The social media platforms are most important communication tools used by all actors in the society (business community, civil society organizations, political parties etc.). Youth workers are not an exception, but despite this there is the problem that youth workers do not possess digital competences and they don’t know how to know how to use and transfer their digital competences while working with young people.
We aim to change this by improving youth workers digital competences and equip them with the tools that will improve their work with young people.
