This is a project whose objective is to collaboratively develop a set of educational tools allowing reflection on the sustainability of the digital world and its impacts. Various books and articles call for this to be called the "hidden face of digital technology". For us, it is a question of building tools to facilitate the discovery of these issues; to show what is hidden behind the ergonomic screen, behind the tool and its functions. In this project we will try to open a back door to see the back of the set, the hidden face of digital. We will look both at the promises and the advantages of these technologies to move towards a true ecological transition, as well as its risks, its limits and its negative consequences under the prism of the environment (water, air, soil and subsoil ...) and of globalized society (human costs of manufacturing and recycling our devices, for example).
3 types of production have been created:
- A European booklet to raising awareness of digital environmental, social and economic issues, challenges and impacts of digital technologies analysed with regards to the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and its 17 Goals. The informative booklet is full of references to relevant scientific publishings and sources, as well as it encompass a wide range of practices, case studies and practical recommendations tailored to meet the educational needs of teachers, trainers, educators, local technicians, school managers, the general public, etc. The booklet has been validated by an Group of distinguished experts.
- A Pedagogical Guide of the Educational Activites on digital uses and "eco-uses" addressed to educators, teachers and trainers working with students aged 11-16 and more, secondary schools level and else.
- A Modular Training Pathway for a flexible duration of a few hours to full days (intended for schools, teachers and adults in general)
The Ligue de l'Enseignement de la Loire (France), the social cooperative Le Mille e una Notte (Italy), and the Ligue de l'Enseignement de la Belgique are three organisations working in the sectors of formal and informal education and solidarity for all and throughout life.
Our 3 organisations joined forces in this project because we share the idea that it is necessary to train about the environmental impact of digital technology. Omnipresent, considered essential, digital technology is everywhere and is developing. Its place in the educational world is growing every day and it is in our opinion absolutely necessary to develop a broad awareness so that it can come to question our practices and if necessary transform them so that everyone develops a conscious, informed and reflective use of this tool.
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. This communication reflects the views of the author and the Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information contained therein.
In the implementation pahse we have always aimed to inform people about our work in a transparent way with some newsletters that you may download here below.
If you have the possibility to distribute them in your networks, it would help us a lot. We thank you for your support.
