“Digital Skills Passport” is an initiative of the Lisbon City Council that seeks to demystify the use of technology, helping citizens, in a simple and engaging way, to take advantage of its daily use. Each workshop has a duration of 15 hours (5 sessions) and it is dedicated to one of ten digital skills from the “Digital Skills Passport”. Workshop sessions revolve around learning activities called “Digital Challenges”, that include non-formal, gamified strategies like missions, quests, badges, role-playing and game narratives. “Digital Challenges” are learning activities based on the Connected Learning paradigm and Non-formal Education theory, that value learners own skills and experiences and incorporates them in the learning process by leveraging prior learning and focusing on informal daily tasks.
Through gamified and informal “Digital Skills” workshops, participants are challenged to explore the democratic, critical thinking and creative potential of the internet and earn digital badges - online micro-credentials based on the Open Badges standard. Earned badges become available on an online portfolio, the "Digital Skills Passport", allowing skills to be shared across the web, on social networks or included in a Curriculum Vitae, while boosting employability skills and digital citizenship.
