DOMINOES project began in February 2022.

It addresses three major priorities of the ERASMUS+ program:

All four partners recognize the need to develop their students’ (future first line practitioners) and trainers’ digital skills which are required to detect and mitigate the effects of disinformation and to build understanding and resilience to the new digital tools of information manipulation that threatens social cohesion.

Consequently, DOMINOES is designed to provide an innovative solution that not only assists the target audience in developing digital literacy, but also places the understanding of digital technologies in a wider social, cultural and security context, signaling broader implications and effects of digital technologies on individuals and society. Ultimately, DOMINOES encourages a positive and resilient mind-set in which technological innovation opportunities are assessed and negative behaviors are avoided.

The main activities in DOMINOES are:

  • Development of a training curriculum on the characteristics of the phenomenon of disinformation and information manipulation, on methods of identifying them online and on responsible conduct in the information ecosystem so as to prevent their dissemination;
  • Development of a training syllabus in the guise of a Massive Open Online Course based on hands-on exercises and learning-by-doing methodology meant to develop the participants’ digital competences and resilience in identifying and tackling online disinformation;
  • Four transnational project meetings to coordinate the development of the training curriculum and syllabus respectively and to organize the learning/teaching/training activities;
  • Three learning/teaching/training activities for the members of the target group from the partner countries but not only;
  • Three multiplier events to disseminate the project results.
