Is this fake or not? School project

Cooperation with the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule Göttingen and the local radio station to raise pupils’ awareness of fake news with the aim of producing a podcast on the subject

Since mid-September, there has been a weekly workshop for interested pupils at the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule on the topic of Fake News. The pupils explore the topic together and develop a podcast for the Stadtradio Göttingen. The afternoon lessons are organised by two members of the No Alternative Facts project team on the basis of the course organised in February. The activities are accompanied by a media educator from Stadtradion, who is then also responsible for the technical implementation later on.
The podcast is expected to go on air early 2021.

SASSI – Impact of the pandemic on learning projects

The planned learning projects – so beautifully planned in Matosinhos – have been massively affected by the current situation. Everything started well. The team of BUPNET and blinc came back full of enthusiasm and started to concretise things. First steps were successfully taken: A coaching guideline based on the SASSI concept was developed, mobility as a means of further training was explored and first plans were made – actually a team training abroad was planned for June, then postponed to September and then cancelled completely for this year … . The plans for Job Shadowing have also been put on hold. Unfortunately, travelling is just not safe these days. But we hope that next year we can catch up on our plans for European mobility!

If you are also interested in planning European mobility, please visit our SASSI Hub, where we have prepared a wealth of information on this topic.

DATALIT – Data Literacy

Nowadays data literacy is widely considered a critical skill to have in the 21st century. It can be defined as the ability to read, work with, analyse, and argue with data, in order to derive meaningful information and knowledge. In the data economy, making sense of data is no longer a must-have skill for data scientist or technology experts only, but it is becoming an essential ability for all workers and a competence that facilitates their employability.

Despite its relevance in labour market and society in general, data analysis is still not included in many university courses, as it is usually part of computer science, engineering and math courses’ curricula

The project DATALIT aims at:

  • Offering to university students across different Faculties, the opportunity to reach a suitable level of data knowledge that they can use and apply appropriately and diversely throughout their personal and professional lives, and possibly to use as sound basis for further and more specialised training in data literacy and science.
  • Narrowing the gap between business and academia and to put European enterprises in direct contact with potential future employees or business partners properly trained to understand and exploit data effectively.

To reach these objectives, the project aims at laying the ground for the integration of data literacy as transversal topic in potentially all university courses, by identifying and developing common syllabus and innovative teaching and learning approaches

  • 12/2019– 11/2021
  • Co-funded by the European Commission through Erasmus+
  • Consortium of 14 partners from 4 Programme EU Countries (Italy, Germany, Portugal, Lithuania), 1 Non-EU Programme Country (Serbia) and 1 Partner Country from Western Balkans (Albania)
