Academic year 2011-2012


Projects’ goals and partners

The first project named DicDucFac (idea-leadership-project) was planned as a workshop that dealt with the application of modern social media (Facebook, YouTube, Gmail) for the purpose of self-promotion, free advertising via social networks, job search, job enrichment, and successful career transitioning.. The workshop was organized for highly-skilled computer literate unemployed youth to increase their chances for employment and self-employment. The project covered both the educational aspect of the human resource development (development of transferable knowledge and different skills) and socio-economic issues in fighting unemployment. It was realized with the local NGO – Croatian Slavic Society.

The aim of the second project named Facebook workshop 65+ was to introduce information technology to older people through computer tutoring and workshops. Students in the project helped older people to gain access to, and learn about, how they can get the best out of digital technology. Through the workshop sessions older people increased their confidence of using technology and felt more connected. The project is described in Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/pages/Besplatna-Radionica-Tin-Ujevi%C4%87/248732571846546
