TICS project is based on the idea that professionals working with young people ( social workers, experts in orientation/ insertion, trainers ..) can play a vital role in dropout prevention and intervention, adressing ICTs role in socio-educational fields and the digital educator concept working on the opportunities that new technologies offer to fight dropouts
The TICS project works on two innovative components:
Help youth discover that it is possible to use online networks in a different way by finding on line professionals willing to listen and to accompany them. Youth will be encouraged to find a better balance between their virtual life and everyday life.
Encourage professionals to meet young people in an environment other than “on the street”. It is necessary to discuss with professionals their current vision on ICT and their impact on the world and on young people they accompany, in order to end with “the digital divide.”
