Event Description

Citizens across Europe and the world have been challenged like never before to deal with the Covid-19 Pandemic, which changed fundamental assumptions that we all had about how we live our lives. We had to adapt quickly and use new technological tools to get over those challenges. The home computer suddenly had a queue. Home working made us reorganise our living space. Trust, security and use of new online tools for remote working became important. Slowly, quietly, we all learned to adapt and live like this. 

ALL DIGITAL wants to take some time to reflect and consider the implications of one of the fastest learning curve of modern times. What are the implications for digital skills education? And for social organisations providing digital education support to people? And finally what are the tools and techniques that unlock societal benefits in our new post-pandemic digital lives.

 

This event will look at how digital skills and digital tools also unlock and amplify the subjects of STE(A)M Education and Digital Social Innovation, how they solve real world problems and add value to the beneficiaries.

 

On 13-15 October 2021, ALL DIGITAL will organise its 14th annual summit ONLINE!

The Summit will bring together over 400 representatives of networks and organisations working to enhance digital skills of European citizens.

The Summit

The theme of the Summit is “Digital Skills and Tools for a Better World”, and keynotes, panels, lightning talks and workshops will be organised around these topics:

  • Citizens and competence centres
  • STE(A)M educators > STEAMonEdu 
  • Young people > Social Hackademy 

In addition to keynotes and panel discussions, the event will introduce a number of projects to the audience and go into varying levels of detail about a range of tools and approaches for different purposes and different audiences under these themes.

 

Social Hackademy: 

Several EU policy initiatives underline that social inclusion of young people depends on their access to ICT and on them acquiring the necessary digital and transversal competences to participate in modern society. The Social Hackademy project provides a unique solution to this by establishing a framework that empowers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds with digital skills and gives them an opportunity to take on an active role in solving societal challenges.

STEAMonEdu: 

STE(A)M education nurtures critical thinking skills which are crucial in critical phases of societies to overcome problems and innovate thanks to a creative mindset. STE(A)M prepares learners for current and future careers independently from the sector or field of interest and life when dealing with complex situations.
