About

PEU-C-E - Promoting European Union’s Cyber Education is a joint Jean Monnet project developed by Business and Technology University and Caucasus University in Georgia which are the only universities concentrating on cybersecurity while also closely aligning with European Union’s values. The aim of the project is to share European experience in cyber education among students, teachers, parents, professors and decision makers with a goal to create safer internet for vulnerable young people. 

 

As a dissemination project, “Promoting European Union’s Cyber Education (PEU-C-E)” has been designed as a strongly integrated combination of different paths for debating and disseminating some of the main issues raised by Cyber Education, on the one hand, and the role of the European dimension in tackling the issues caused by it, on the other. This action aims to increase awareness of the risks faced when being online and to support capacity building of educators in online safety. Three initiatives are foreseen with specific activities involved:

 

  • A Georgia wide awareness-raising campaign on cyber culture, which will promote online safety, media literacy and ‘cyber hygiene’ for children, parents, teachers, professors and decision makers in schools and universities;

  • A blended course (online and face-to-face) for teachers on cyber education and pedagogical approaches to teaching cyber education in primary and secondary education, as well as for the university professors and decision makers to ensure cyber safety in academia;

  • Diversity of dissemination activities and PR strategies to reach a wide number of targeted groups through project website, BTU and CU website, social and traditional media channels partnered with both universities as well as forums, competitions and workshop events. Such streamlined and diversified strategies will ensure that a high number of communities will have access to EU cyber education experience, its achievements and will also be able to adopt new skills for safer internet use. 

 

Wider goal: the goal of the project is to educate primary & secondary school children as well as university students, teachers, professors as well as decision makers in schools and universities regarding the European Union’s experience on threats of cyber space for kids and improve the level of competencies of schools and HEI in ensuring safer internet for children; The educators, in turn, will share their knowledge and skills with colleagues, and thereby contribute to a more inclusive and higher quality education in cybersecurity.  

 

Specific Objectives:  the project aims to achieve more responsible cybersecurity and data protection education aligned with EU directives and experiences through:

  • Developing workshop curricula for the cybersecurity event for educating teachers and HEI as well as school leaders utilizing European Union’s experience;

  • Developing event material, leaflets for kids to equip them with internet hygiene skills;

  • Subsequent adaptation of these material in schools and universities as part of mandatory workshop events; 

  • Subsequent adaptation of these curricula and courses to the respective local contexts and their unique patterns of diversity;

  • Development of multilingual online educational resources in order to make material available to everyone, especially to the most vulnerable groups further away from the center;

  • Raising awareness of all stakeholders to force streamlining processes to the European Union’s experience through the conference.
