Digital Literacy in Europe

The DiLitE project will support and facilitate the up-skilling of practitioners at all levels (volunteers, mentors, classroom assistants, teachers) through research into, and comparison of the teaching of basic digital skill literacy practices across European (EU) settings as an integral part of basic literacy practice with native and non-native speakers of the main language(s), as well as migrant populations who are developing language and literacy skills in the host country’s language.

Research and comparison will lead to the development and provision of both short-term outputs (i.e. by the project’s completion) as well as longer term and sustainable results (i.e. post project completion) for the countries involved as well as for basic literacy practitioners across the EU:

  • A concrete methodological framework in the form of a Methodological eBook;
  • A flexible, adaptable to country needs, curriculum for Adult Educators;
  • A Practice Toolkit;
  • An Online Platform.

During its 24month lifetime, DiLitE will directly and indirectly positively impact:

At least


adult education professionals from 6 countries

At least


eBook readers /indirect beneficiaries

At least


multiplier event participants
