Workshop: Perspectives of Web 2.0 for Citizenship Education in Europe

13.4.2011
The fast spread of Web 2.0 along with the increased use of social media formats has created numerous new forms of political participation and of civic engagement. The effects of these developments on politics and the society currently cause several controversies, also in the field of citizenship education. Once more the current situation in the Arab countries shows the influence of the power of social media on citizens' active participation. The workshop in Brno aimed at identifying the specific interactions of Web 2.0 and citizenship education. Along concrete good practice projects, the participants discussed current tasks, challenges and opportunities for citizenship education. Target groups were net activists, Web 2.0 experts, practitioners from the field of citizenship education, media educators, teachers and multipliers from Europe. Up to 40 participants were invited.
