As Language learning is an inevitable step towards integration, one of the goals set by the Common Basic Principles, so are in our highly digitalized societies, digital skills. With the development of toolkits for language learning with the use of ICT and media, the project aims to develop double learning paths, which permit migrants to acquire two sets of competences which enhance their integration.
A further relevant priority of this project is the development of innovative methodologies for the integration of media and digital literacy in the education of migrant adults, fostering so social inclusion development of social, civic, intercultural competences, media literacy and critical thinking, also combating discrimination, segregation, racism, bullying and violence.
