Mothers from both schools attended Skype lecture about the good and bad sides of the Internet. In order to allow their children to be on the Net it is necessary for parents to be well informed and to know all the positive and negative aspects of the Internet communication.<br /> <br /> In Religion teaching class with I-NIGMA android and tablet application good aspects of the Internet are used in order to answer the questions through the coding. This way we reviewed what we have learned.<br /> <br /> In English language class the teacher have explained how to tell the time. The teacher has used interactive presentation. Pupils have answered questions interestedly and thus participated in an interactive quiz.<br /> <br /> Using free internet applications for android phones and IOS, we have recorded short films showing experiments in natural sciences. During the class we have performed all the selected experiments together and checked the accuracy of the relevant principles of natural sciences (gravity, magnetism, density of solution).<br /> <br /> We completed this eventful week with the most interesting act and marvellous magic tricks which we used to study the holographic images.<br /> <br /> Throughout the wonderful friendship with correlating and linking school material we have learned a lot and had a good time also.<br /> <br /> " Get Online Week 2016 tag:www.unite-it.eu,2016-04-01:2058019:Video:96735 2016-04-01T12:39:37.310Z Osvaldas Rimkus http://www.unite-it.eu/profile/OsvaldasRimkus <a href="http://www.unite-it.eu/video/get-online-week-2016"><br /> <img src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/57898728?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Digital Champion of Lithuania Renata Danieliene conveys a message about ICT skills and digital technologies during the Get Online Week 2016 initiative <a href="http://www.unite-it.eu/video/get-online-week-2016"><br /> <img src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/57898728?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Digital Champion of Lithuania Renata Danieliene conveys a message about ICT skills and digital technologies during the Get Online Week 2016 initiative Campaign for digital inclusion tag:www.unite-it.eu,2016-04-01:2058019:Video:96632 2016-04-01T09:06:02.216Z Magdalena Dimkova http://www.unite-it.eu/profile/MagdalenaDimkova <a href="http://www.unite-it.eu/video/campaign-for-digital-inclusion"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/57898763?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Primary school teacher Larisa Mitovski from Kriva Palanka organize meeting with her students from primary school Joakim Krcovski and Club of pensioners in the office of Red Cross in Kriva Palanka.

In other words, Albanians, and mainly young Albanian men and women use social networks like FB and Twitter, but it was even awarded a prize. Even though non-EU countries, Albania and Serbia are part of an electronic network of 11 countries, among other EU member countries. This was enabled thanks to the Albanian Institute of Science, which has included Albania in the Telecenter Europe network, which, through the optimal use of Information and Communication Technologies, intends not only to fight social exclusion and poverty, but also increase citizen’s participation in political decision-making through electronic instruments.<br /> <br /> At a ceremony that took place in the European Parliament, the winners of an electronic participation contest, which had presented inspiring stories of active citizenship, were awarded prizes of appreciation. Jora Risto is one of the 12 winners among hundreds of stories presented on how European young people use instruments of electronic participation in order to raise public awareness, influence, or solve social issues. The story for which Jora was awarded the price represents an important moment of civic participation in Albania. She presented the story of the ‘Students of November 2013’, who managed to mobilize protests against the process of dissembling the Syrian chemical weapons in Albania.<br /> <br /> In EU member countries, active electronic citizenship may lead not only to protests being organized against certain decisions, but even to changes in the legislation. According to the Executive Director of Telecenter Europe network, Gabriel Rissola, active electronic participation is promoting democratic processes of societies among societies themselves.<br /> <br /> Gabriel Rissola: “The so-called ‘Spanish Revolution’ of 15 May was a process that mobilized a lot of people, millions of citizens in Spain. The entire process started through phone calls with people being informed about a protest that was going to take place in the center of Madrid. There were many proposals made by, let’s say, people’s assemblies, but none was translated into changes to the legislation. Nothing happened. That is why it was very interesting to hear the case of Estonia today, where protests managed to be materialized into 7 new laws”.<br /> <br /> Active electronic participation intends to make best use of citizens’ initiative in European decision-making. Based on Lisbon Treaty, if 1 million signatures are collected on a given issue, the European Commission is expected to initiate its legislative process on that issue.<br /> <br /> Broadcast on13 December 2015 on TV ABC NEWS
