BRIGHTS at Social Hackaton Umbria 2018

Social Hackaton Umbria 2018 has been a great opportunity for people gathering in Foligno from all over Europe to share ideas and experience on digital skills. In the framework of SHU2018 the BRIGHTS project found its right place. On the 2nd of July, right before the beginning of the Hackaton, the BRIGHTS project has been presented to an audience of over 25 people at cinema Spazio ZUT!, a location that has not been picked by chance. The reason of this choice is that the main protagonists of the event were the digital stories produced by young people and students in the last months and a cinema was the best place to be. Before the screening of 12 selected digital stories, the stage was given to Sara Cella and Federica Funghi from Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi who presented the BRIGHTS project and Chiara Borsini from Associazione Centro Studi Città di Foligno,who, as National tutor for Italy, presented the results of the experimentation phase, focusing in particular on the workshops with teachers and trainers and with young people. The event was held in English due to the presence among the audience of seven teachers from all over Europe involved in SHU2018 as being part of ENGAGE, an Erasmus+ project aimed at the development of entrepreneurial skills through the use of educational digital games. Some of the teachers and kids who took part in the workshop were present at the event and it was a great satisfaction for them to see their stories screened in a cinema in front of an international audience.
