The Directorate of Digital Literacy and Transversal Skills invites you to attend an information session /workshop about SELFIE & Digital Citizenship Education on Wednesday, 22nd January, 2020 from 9:00am – 12:30am at the Digital Literacy Centre, Joseph Abela Scolaro Street, Ħamrun. Educators attending this session are encouraged to bring along a copy of their school’s SDP and possibly any SELFIE feedback report the school has in hand. These will be used during the workshop session.During the second term, SELFIE (Self-Reflection on Effective Learning by Fostering the use of Innovative Educational technologies) will be made accessible to all State and non-State Schools for students, educators and leaders till Friday, 10th April, 2020.
It is very important that every school participating in this reflection exercise appoints a SELFIE Coordinator to register the school, as well as to disseminate the link generated by the site to the participants. The school’s generic email must always be supplied during registration. SELFIE will help schools to better know where they stand in the innovative use of digital tools in teaching and learning.
Further information on the role of the SELFIE Coordintor is obtained from:
Digital Citizenship Education (DCE) is intended to help young people to develop the competences required to engage and act as active participants in society through the use of digital technologies. Digital Citizenship Education is best conceived as a whole-school approach rather than a subject in the curriculum since it involves values and attitudes, not just technical skills and knowledge.
The information meeting intends to give an insight into the role of school communities in fostering DCE into their daily practices, not just to protect their students from the challenges of the digital world but to make them aware of how they can use digital technologies for the good of society.
Interested teachers are encouraged to register on https://bit.ly/2r6KU3k by Tuesday, 21st January, 2020
