About the project

ASAP is an Erasmus+ funded project (KA220-SCH-BC59D668) involving partners from five countries: Italy, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Croatia, and Portugal. The project addresses digital transformation from the onset age by fostering a conscious use of digital and social media in kids (namely pre-adolescents). The project works on metacognitive skills aiming to develop the preadolescents’ understanding of how media shape and transform the relationship between the inner and the outside world. Ana Filipa Oliveira (Coordinator), Maria José Brites and Teresa Sofia Castro are the researchers collaborating on the project.
