The first multiplier event of the No One Behind project in Portugal was held on the 14th of October and it was a great success with an audience of 66 teachers, trainers, coordinators and directors from training centres and schools joining the event from all over the country!
The first presentation was led by our special guest who is a teacher, researcher and specialist in adult education: Dina Soeiro. Dina provided us with some figures and important information about literacy, whether digital, financial and literacy in general among Portuguese people and Europeans. It was highlighted that some projects in Portugal have been working on enhancing literacy levels and it is important to take information to rural areas, where population is often excluded.
The No One Behind project team presented the two main results published so far: the innovative methodology and the training manual. The audience learned about the potential of these documents in supporting the development of training courses in digital literacy but also as support materials for people who autonomously want to develop these skills.
In order to illustrate one of the activities described in the training manual, the project team challenged participants to answer a quiz related to information online and this was a dynamic and fun moment.
At the end of the event, there was time for a very interesting discussion about the resources needed across the country to enhance the digital literacy of citizens living in rural areas.
We take this opportunity to thank all professionals attending the event and all the valuable contributions.
