Educators! Support your leaners to become digital citizens
New series of online courses on digital citizenship education

The Council of Europe in close co-operation with the European Wergeland Centre has developed a series of online courses on digital citizenship education (DCE) and on issues that are pertinent to DCE to support professionals in education.

Educators across Europe can benefit from these experiential and social learning courses to improve their understanding of and skills in teaching digital citizenship education. They will have the opportunity to work together with fellow professionals on real-life examples and be able to plan digital citizenship learning experiences that will engage and empower students to become active citizens in a world dominated by digital technology.

The first course “What is digital citizenship education?” explores the following questions:

  • What does it mean for young learners to be digital citizens in today’s society?
  • What are the aims and purposes of digital citizenship education?
  • How to integrate digital citizenship education into everyday practice?

The new courses dive deep into the following issues:

  • Hate speech online
  • Cyberbullying
  • Disinformation
  • Access and inclusion
  • Controversial issues online.




The Council of Europe also invites educators across Europe to meet and exchange with the course designers and share their experience with other participants.

The first live online session will be on 4 July 2024 at 14.30 CET.
