Deep digital citizenship and educational challenge between institutional documents and student voices
MetadataShow full item record
This proposal presents a critical analysis of European and international indications and documents on digital competences and citizenship education with particular regard to digital citizenship. Our perspective is dictated by the results of an exploratory “student voice” research that has identified the representations and reflections of university students in the face of the power and seduction of digital media. From the comparison with the documents, we have highlighted some dimensions that appear, to us, to relaunch the educational needs that emerged from our data. This analysis therefore addresses three paths of critical reflection: a) the pedagogical perspective on the media, from the protection approach to the development of participation, reflection and responsibility; b) the global digital dimension, from the theory of communication discontinuity (online-offline) to the holistic approach (“onlife”); c) deep global competence, from media communication to global interaction between conscious, responsible and reflective citizens to the challenges of the media revolution.
