DARE – Digital Awareness for Resilience Experiences is a research project funded by the European programme Erasmus+ (Key Action 2 – Adult education) and implemented by a consortium of 7 partners from Bulgaria, Italy, Norway, Slovenia and Spain coordinated by Per Esempio ONLUS.
DARE aims to fill one of the most significant gaps produced by the pandemic and its effects: the relationship between citizens and territory, society and physical places. Among its effects, the Covid-19 emergency caused huge disruptions in the education and training sectors and a sudden shift towards remote learning. The widespread use of technology has revealed gaps and weaknesses, but it also represents an opportunity to rethink education and training in the digital age.
In this context, the main output of the DARE project was the creation of an open-source toolkit for the development of creative and collaborative online projects. The aim is to raise awareness and train in the use of the main tools and methodologies for training in the digital sphere. It is an interactive kit that brings together digital services and platforms and offers support in their use through a series of tutorials dedicated to practical activities such as organising a remote workshop or moderating a brainstorming session. Guidelines, advice on activities and timing, and tips accompany the toolkit.
The DARE toolkit was co-created by all project partners who involved their local communities in a participatory process of collecting ideas, insights and needs and in a subsequent feedback session to improve the prototype kit. The toolkit has been translated into the languages of the project partners and is therefore available free of charge in Italian, English, Spanish, Slovenian and Bulgarian and can be downloaded from the websites of the various project partners.
