Project Information

S2DInTs – To Digitally Include Teachers and Students is a proposal of 7 partners from 4 countries addressing the problem of the Digitalization of the classroom, which, by means of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, suddenly became a ”new normal” of compulsory implementation, regardless of teachers’ preparation or readiness to perform it in the best possible way. The project’s name points out for the dimension Inclusion into Digital Literacy, both Teachers as, by consequence, Students.

Such dimension aims to bring teachers into the digital era, to promote the teachers’ full and pedagogical info-inclusion but also to include in the Digital Era additional important actors, such as the school students, and beyond it, to tackle society as a whole and to prevent discriminatory scenarios, such as cyberbullying (which significantly increased during the pandemic crisis, as the recent scientific literature about this phenomenon confirms).
By generating a better school environment and being able to keep pedagogy and Education properly running, particularly under such

adverse circumstances as a pandemic generalized crisis, teachers will definitely gain skills and competences but also self-fulfilment and self-esteem.

S2DInTs needs analysis was made during the implementation of previous projects which made the partners perceive the dimension of the sudden changes and how educational actors may not necessarily be prepared to cope with such radical, while unavoidable, changes. Partners, including Schools, have kept a close watch on the development of the situation in order to collect elements that could support decisions and mitigation strategies. The evidence about the need for some “surviving tools” that could bring immediate relief on the digitalization approach requirements, while not losing sight over the pedagogical insurance, was very high. Partners analysed the needs and understood how tackling teachers would be the best option to integrate the required practices in Education.

This was underlined by those partners which are Schools, thus making proof of the added value that S2DInTs may bring for them and for their peers.

Project Objectives

The aim of this partnership is to address and to mitigate the problem of lacking digital competences in a complex social environment, as Schools, even sharpened by the COVID-19 crisis, and looking to achieve a truly pedagogical environment in the e-classroom, necessarily provided by fully prepared teachers. The project’s implementation context and objectives were defined as:

To support the increase of digital competences of teachers, by providing them the knowledge and tools to better promote their online classes, generating a friendly, an inclusive, and a better learning environment in the e-classroom;

To support School Education to become more inclusive, by upskilling teachers’ digital competences, and by enhancing students’ participation in digital classes and their access in equal terms, regardless any social context of disadvantage;

To increase teachers’ ability to understand and to deal with the transition from the traditional classroom to the e-classroom, not only from a technical, but also a pedagogical, a sociological and a human perspective, raising awareness of notions such as info-exclusion or cyberbullying.
