Having already passed through 2 months of lockdown in our houses due to COVID19 emergency, we experienced a very different lifestyle that re-shaped our relationships within the family and with our friends, colleagues and relatives. One important thing that greatly affected our daily life is surely the relationship with technology and especially our online life. Were we all ready for this?
In the context of unprecedented challenges and efforts of educational and information communities throughout Europe to tackle the current COVID-19 crisis, the IN-EDU project partners met virtually on April 8th and April 10th to evaluate, regroup and advance their media and information literacy activities targeting high-school students, teachers, parents and the community at large.
