The GLAD project aims to empower adults, adult carers, as well as adult educators in terms of the proper and effective digital education of children, through improving the level of digital literacy of adults and parents. This will be achieved by creating a safe pattern of training for parents that focuses on the relation between parents and children in digital technology usage, defining an overall framework of education to enhance the possibilities given by ICT, and creating an app that can be used as a space where to have ready-to-go suggestion materials according to different everyday life situations.
As a result, the project wants to contribute to the current situation in Europe, bringing to better equipping in digital education educators/adult carers as well as in improving the digital literacy of adults and parents to ameliorate their influence on child development.
The Main Results of the project are:
- A Theoretical Framework to assess the competences needed for adults and educators
- A Handbook for Adult Carers and Educators
- A Handbook for Adults
- A Gamified App for adults giving on-going guidance on different themes and questions (available both in iOS and Android)
The project consortium consists of partners from Poland (Coordinator), Cyprus, Italy, Romania, and Spain.
