Recommendations from the BRIGHTS project
Moderators: Barbara Quarta, ALL DIGITAL; Luca Pagliaricci, Centro Studi Foligno
The current global scenario requires education and training institutions to assume greater responsibility than ever in helping learners of all backgrounds to develop into informed, critically literate, socially-connected, ethical and engaged global citizens. Nowadays, it is crucial that we give young people the competences and the voice to share their own perspective in a globalised society.
The topic of the session was implementing Global Citizenship Education (GCE) among young people using digital storytelling in formal and non-formal education. Experience, lessons learnt and recommendations from the BRIGHTS project were presented.
Barbara Quarta introduced and moderated the session, while Luca Pagliaricci shared his experience as a BRIGHTS national tutor in Italy. Moderators presented the findings from the BRIGHTS Experimentation Report, which summarises the results of the implementation of the BRIGHTS MOOC and face-to-face workshops in the project countries. Few examples of BRIGHTS digital stories produced by young people were also shown during the session. The young authors who took part in the session, talked about their experience. Session participants discussed how the methodology and results can be disseminated, scaled, and used by other digital competence centres or networks.

How the BRIGHTS methodology and results can be used by other digital competence centres?
Participants concluded that the BRIGHTS methodology is very innovative and has a lot of potential for scaling up in different contexts and with different target groups.
