Well-being in digital education

The Erasmus+ programme is running a call for policy experimentation projects which address how inclusive and high-quality digital education contributes to learners’ digital well-being.

It’s part of the Digital Education priority, whose total funding amounts to € 15 000 000.

Translating best practices into projects

The priority promotes cooperation between schools, education technology providers and the wider community. Funding is available for projects which can put best practices about digital well-being into action in the classroom.

Who can apply

The applicants (beneficiaries and affiliated entities) must be legal entities (public or private bodies) active in the fields of education and training, research and innovation or in the world of work.

Activities that can be funded

The main activities under this priority could involve

  • researching, transnational mapping, and policy analysis to enhance understanding and bridge the gap between policy and practice
  • developing and delivering capacity-building activities (training, mentoring programmes, etc.)
  • designing and piloting frameworks, guidelines, methods, and activities related to innovative solutions
  • proposing evidence-based recommendations which could address different interested organisations and levels
  • analysing how project results could be transferred and sustained
  • dissemination and networking events to showcase the project work and encourage collaboration

Implications for policy

Well-being in digital education focuses on the creation of a positive learning experience through the use of digital tools and technologies.

As such, it addresses the effects of the digital technologies on the well-being of the school community.

It covers a wide spectrum of ideas, practices and principles that focus on assessing how:

  • high-quality digital content can enhance learning opportunities and improve motivation and engagement
  • assistive technologies can make learning more inclusive and accessible
  • actions boosting safety online of young people should be included in professional development of teachers and educators

The topic also relates to the development of critical thinking skills, digital empowerment and digital resilience, so that young people can build a digital behaviour that will allow them to address online threats and fully benefit from the opportunities of the digital world.
