Scope

This workshop aims to address the educational needs and technological awareness of the future citizens, i.e. the youth in the age range 6-18 that will experience their citizenship in a rapidly evolving Knowledge Society. People are boosting participation in democracy through the digital architectures and the physical interaction to devices. Humans are sharing and collaborating throughout platforms, networks, interactive ecosystems using different intelligences. We are now immersed in very complex networks, social and technological at the same time, and the idea of our citizenship is getting harder to comprehend and define. And the skyrocketing technological push will make the challenges that will be facing our children even harder than the ones many of us, adults today, had to face. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, Social Networks, Cloud Computing, are only some of the crucial technological challenges, already permeating our world at any level and in many fields. But also Media Literacy, Ethics, Sociology, and History are substantial fields that shape the comprehension and the behaviour of a citizen, when engaged in a technologically connected and globalized world. So, their integration in a Technology-enhanced educational framework could represent an opportunity of increasing the citizens’ digital awareness and gradually setting up a transversal mindset, both ecological and sustainable for all learners: a universal intangible cultural heritage: the future of our society depends on an engaged, informed, and critically-thinking population.

The workshop is meant to connect researchers, educators and technologists involved in different and diverse areas, such as education, digital government, pedagogy, social and collaborative systems, cultural heritage, ethics, etc. to promote interdisciplinary research around the citizenship and the role of Technology-Enhanced Learning in shaping the future of our society, through the construction of future citizens that are fully aware of potentials and risks.
