The Fondazione Mondo Digitale is also a partner of Project Sonet-Bull – Using ICT social networking tools, peer learning and crowdsourcing to train school communities to address student bullying. The objective is to combine modern pedagogic approaches (e-learning and peer learning) with widely used technological tools (Internet, social networks, mobiles) to provide timely and constant support to the entire community of actors involved in the school bullying phenomenon.
Moreover, the project partners are designing a training platform to provide teachers, educators and other interested parties with access to all the approved teaching material, as well as tools to publish their experiences and comment them with their peers.
The two-year project, which started in September 2014, is implemented as part of the Erasmus Plus Programme, Key Action 2 “Strategic Partnerships” School Sector, National Greek Agency.
Selection for the teachers, school directors, teacher trainers, parents and parent association representatives who will participate in the project and develop material to learn more about bullying is underway in the four participating.
