Sofia, Bulgaria
A 2-day intensive workshop, based on interactive training methods and ‘peer-to-peer education’.

Introduction

What is Cyberscout Training Programme?

What we do?

This is a Training Programme developed by the Safer Internet Centre. It proved to be one of the best models of the Centre toward the protection and empowerment of children and young people while online by raising awareness, critical thinking. By increasing digital literacy skills among children and youth it has been promoting the positive, safe and responsible use of Internet and information and communication technologies. 

Why we do it?

We put our efforts to ensure that children become capable and responsible young adults, who can use the ICTs to grow up into successful and active citizens. Teaching them digital and media literacy skills encourages them to take advantage of the opportunities of the digital era. They can be more self-expressive, and can work on their self-development by getting to know the world around them and communicating with their peers respecting their rights and views and adapting to the new, different and constantly changing situations and problems in the digital environment.
