HOW TO GUIDE CHILDREN SAFE
THROUGH DISTANCE LEARNING
THROUGH TIMES OF CORONA CRISIS
PROJECT-AIMS
Distance learning // homeschooling - a lot is demanded of parents during the Corona crisis. However, many are unable to provide their children with the support they need due to socio-economic disadvantage and a lack of digital skills.
When we work with young people, especially young, educationally disadvantaged and/or socio-economically disadvantaged families, we know that they often need help with similar issues. The aim of our project is to show different solutions in a European comparison, which will be published in an online article, a guide and a number of methods and will be freely accessible to all interested parties. With this the main goal of an additional professionalization of our organizations has been achieved. Not only do the individual organizations benefit from European exchange, but families can also get the feeling that other people in Europe are similar to themselves.

PROJECT WORK
PROJECT IDEA
The family is the smallest system of European society, the starting point for democracy building and social change and therefore deserves special support. From our work with international organizations and educational institutions as well as from experience in our own educational work, we have learned that families have different access, particularly in the area of education and digital skills as well as digital resources. The Coranavirus-crisis in particular makes it clear that access to education is not available for all children and families. Now that almost all schools in Europe have switched to distance learning, numerous problems are becoming evident. These problems affect families across Europe to a similar extent. We asked ourselves whether this is the case everywhere in the European Union, whether families (parents and children) from Austrian, Italian and other EU - countries have the same problems and how to deal with these problems - with us and in other countries. How is it reacted to when parents are uneducated or lack basic digital equipment or parents have so little digital skills that they cannot support their children in distance learning. How can we, as providers of educational offers, support these parents and children? What suggestions can we get from organizations working with parents and children and thereby improve our work in a targeted manner? Therefore, we will disseminate our results in an online article that describes how to deal with these problems in a European comparison and shows different approaches to solutions. In addition, we will draw up a guideline for educational providers, which options there are for parents and children who run the risk of being left behind by this problem and where they can turn. In addition, a set of methods is created that is specially designed for parents / legal guardians, which includes digital tools that serve to develop their digital skills and support their children in distance learning and learning in general. The direct target groups are the employees of the organizations who will carry the results into the indirect target group of parents and families through their work. Not only the individual organizations benefit from the European exchange, but also the families. The consortium plans to use the collected similarities and evaluated approaches in a follow-up project.
