PR4 (Digital competence, fluency, intelligence and engagement of HEI students) aims to equip students with skills to fully participate in digital education, but also with pedagogical skills to make connections with local communities and sensitize them towards digital inclusion and digital empowerment of underprivileged and underrepresented community members. It is aimed at empowering students to address sensitive contemporary societal issues and at developing following digital skills: critical use of digital content, digital participation, self- actualizing, creative production of digital content, problem solving, digital learning and development. The e-course is organized around 4 main digital pillars: competence (confident and appropriate use of digital technologies to engage in society), fluency (appropriate use of technologies and application of digital skills to enhance one’s own learning, work-readiness or everyday life), intelligence (a set of social, emotional and cognitive abilities that enable individuals to face the challenges and adapt to the demands of digital life) and engagement (appropriate use of digital tools to find, listen to and mobilize a community around an issue)

Digital Development is an e- course. By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • critically reflect on the use of digital content;
  • recognize the ethical dimensions of using the digital content in digital communication, collaboration and participation;
  • model a more mindful approach regarding the use of digital media in work, study, and life;
  • create digital content that is both visually appealing and informative, and inclusive to different stakeholders;
  • apply storytelling approach and scenario-based approach;
  • understand the concept of digital intelligence;
  • recognise service-learning as a strategy to enhance digital empowerment of communities and marginalized groups.
