On digital education of young people at the “Europe of the Carpathians” conference
The 35th edition of the “Europe of the Carpathians” conference, co-organised by the Chancellery of the Sejm and the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, took place on 24-26 February in the beautiful setting of the Krasiczyn Castle, near the Polish-Ukrainian border.
Magdalena Hajduk, Director of the Institute of National Remembrance’s New Technologies Office, took part in the conference, speaking during the second day of discussions on a panel dedicated to the education of the future: digital education, with a particular focus on digital education of young people. Director Hajduk presented the most important objectives that the Office is currently aiming to achieve by supporting the digital transformation of the educational offer, on the one hand establishing a dialogue with the young generation, and on the other – in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science – supporting and encouraging teachers to use the latest digital technology. There are currently podcasts being created to “familiarise teachers with new technologies”. They are primarily aimed at educators who have not previously had the opportunity to learn about the new technologies available. The most recent result of the Office’s activities is also the “HISTHACK” hackathon, organised as part of the Congress of National Remembrance, which attempts to “build an immersive history lesson based on new technologies” with the participation of young people themselves, of course under the supervision of academics and specialists.
