Digital citizenship through language education

The project seeks to help learners become digital citizens and develop the capacity to use digital media critically, creatively and autonomously in several languages. The project will build on recommendations and guidelines from the Council of Europe and other international institutions as well as on national policies in order to develop a pedagogical framework and resources for use by language teachers.

Project results

Before embarking on a project which aims to develop digital citizenship through language education, it is essential to define what is meant by "digital citizenship". 

The e-lang citizen project team therefore carried out a meta-analysis of 98 texts published by supranational organisations (such as the Council of Europe or UNESCO) and by specialists in the field. These publications contributed to further defining the notion of digital citizenship and its constitutive elements. 

The profile of citizens as users of languages and digital technology is based on this analysis.
