3. Democratic and Civic Participation


    In Module 3, our students worked together in internationally mixed groups on the following questions:

    – How democratic is the Internet? What are positive/negative aspects to consider?

    – What ethical questions does the Internet pose? What are new ethical dilemmas and moral conundrums in the digital age?

    – Inter-activity or inter-passivity? How does the internet influence citizen activeness?

    – What values are promoted by the internet? What values are put at risk?

    – To what extent is the internet a means for empowering, solving tensions and avoiding discrimination?

    – Does the internet help or hinder cultural diversity and free expression of individuality?

    Each group produced a video with the students' reflections.
