Technology and Society

Connections Across Frontiers

The Interactive Open Online Course ‘Technology and Society’ invites students and youth from the Southern Mediterranean and Europe to explore the role that technology plays in our everyday lives and our societies. Participants will learn from, and with, their peers in an interactive, intercultural, online environment and reflect on the societal changes that come with technological developments.

Overview

  • Start date: 4 November 2019
  • Duration: 6 weeks
  • Application process and deadline: TBA, (expected October 2019)

Technology has never been as influential as it is today; impacting our personal lives as well as the societies we live in. The rapid evolution of technology changes how people interact and build connections; it affects how people receive information, engage with social issues and participate in politics. Technology also shapes the job market, the way people work, get paid and spend their money.
In this course participants get the chance to discuss the challenges and opportunities these technological developments pose.

Stimulated by materials including bite-sized video lectures and other visual and written materials from expert academics and practitioners, participants exchange ideas and perspectives in weekly, live, online group sessions. These online sessions take place in a customized video-conference room and are led by trained dialogue facilitators. Alongside preparing for the weekly sessions, participants will engage in a collaborative assignment.

Participants develop, among others, transversal skills such as self-esteem, curiosity and cross-cultural communication skills. They will be awarded an Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange digital Badge to highlight the skills achieved.
