The NEXUS project is an ERASMUS+ project (2019-1-ES01-KA203-065861), running from 2019 to 2022, that builds upon the literature to focus on empowering students (especially migrants) to exercise their rights, uphold human values, and contribute constructively to the society around them and the global community in general.
The project will explore the relationship between digitally enabled participatory tools and democracy, including such dimensions as citizen demand, state power, collective action and mobilization, and culture. Building on the idea that many opportunities for meaningful civic learning exist in online environments, NEXUS will use technologies that are familiar and appealing to digital natives.
NEXUS aims at innovating the civic educational process resulting in increased participation of students in their communities. As a part of this innovation, a MOOC on Civic education will be developed for students with a migrant and diverse background, focusing on Civic education micro-learning units. Subsequently, a knowledge-sharing platform (building on open educational resources and practices) for civic educators will be developed. It will focus on migration and cultural diversity, with guidelines for HEIs on student civic engagement in the form of a strategic framework that will emphasize how the social inclusion needs of migrant and students with diverse backgrounds can be addressed. Finally, the notion of Civics will be re-written to version 4.0, connecting students to institutions in the digital age. An inventory of digital tools for Open Democracy and digital citizenship education will be compiled, together with a handbook for educators on civic education for a digital age.
