In nowadays society where science and information known a spectacular development and use of new web 2.0 and social media applications is no longer regarded as an avant-garde movement our students should be able to handle in the creative use of computer and online free tools represents a necessity in XXI Century Education . Today more than ever is observed a conversion worldwide of educational content in a digital form and this products are available to anyone, anywhere and anytime through eLearning technology. Interactive presentations like glogster edu and digital school lessons make a centered student who live in a learning envirolment and virtual education has become a phenomenon in education in last years. Training and professional development must be guided and monitored also for disadvantaged childrens because for this students classic access to information is not avaible . In the era of Internet and development of new technologies although my students and other students who have problems are children with special educational needs, at risk of school droppout XXI Century Skills can help them integrate into society .. Web 2.0andsocial mediacan bring a new dimension and can reform education around the word because electronic communication helps teachers and students to learn from each other. These technologies can stimulate discussion, open gateway to knowledge, promoting creativity and innovation for effective lifelong learning . Teacher and also students should have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times.
Pulling Piaget and Papert , the use of participatory media tools in education is typically geared towards, creating a more student centered, adaptive environnement where learners can contribute to the course material, formulate and express their own insights and opinion, construct their own understanding of material by connecting concepts, to personal experience or current events, and learn from one another in collaborative environments .Web 2.0 , social media and other digital and information technologies are powerful and interesting tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone and for this reason teachers and students must know how to use it nowadays in a safe mode
In the same time students are happy to came at schools where they learn about new tools and apps web 2.0 and social media and also they learn how to integrate in a safe mode new digital technologies in their classroom ,and this may prevent early school dropout . Although there are students with special needs , if they develop digital skills easier to integrate into the labor market today as most employers require computer literacy skills when hiring.
Through this project we want to develop XXI century skills for students using in a eSafe mode new tehnologies in education 2.0 . If we use with our students new tools and applications web 2.0 and social media we open for them gateway through knowledge .
