The World is More Valuable
Information technologies have become an integral part of modern life. With the COVID-19 global pandemics, distance education has acquired a more central role in every walks of life. As we are separated away from our schools due to the pandemics, we would like to remind our students of the importance of our socio-cultural values as well as their core role in defining the individual. We aim to alleviate the inadequacies of both teachers and students in media literacies and the appropriate use of technology in this period of online learning conditions. We also aim at spreading the proper use of learning technologies. Bringing our students and teachers together, the main strands in our project are raising their awareness of media literacies, disinformation, and use of interactive online tools. Doing so, we would like to enhance collaboration for values education between teachers and students by using of online tools.
In line with the values education, our students;
* To adopt universal and human values at an early age,
* Gaining feelings of empathy, love, universality, tolerance, compassion and helping each other,
* To increase our students’ communication skills and to socialize
* To encourage working in cooperation
* Improving media literacy skills
* To enable them to use technology in a useful way, to offer them the opportunity to discover their own skills
* Guiding students to be technology literate, active and participatory individuals
