DCE Pilot Project

Between March and May 2021 DDLTS launched a DCE Pilot Project in 3 schools: Mqabba, Floriana and Kalkara. Throughout this project, the SLT and the educators in Years 4, 5 and 6 were introduced to the concept of Digital Citizenship Education. They were presented with the lesson pack and also the Council of Europe’s Digital Citizenship Education Handbook.

As part of the project the educators were invited to select lessons from the pack to be delivered in their classrooms by the digital literacy staff and by themselves. The parents of the students were invited to attend an information session about DCE so as that they would be in a better position to support the work being done with the students. Feedback sought from educators, students and parents was positive and encouraging and highlighted the need to invest further in DCE.
