THE INTERNET/An ally or an adversary?

Pubblicato

il

Using the internet on your daily basis can be considered inevitable. Little do we know about its hazards, which can come from the reckless use of it.
The Internet itself is only a tool, a way to connect people and let them share their experiences or create various websites, such as databases, or places where you can meet others online. The fact that it is a tool means it may be also used in more malevolent ways.
Unfortunately, we simply can’t trust everyone we meet on the web because we are never certain whether that person we’ve just met on Facebook, or emailed us is going to harm us in any various way.
There are many scamming methods, such as phishing, where you are exposed to visit a fake site, which would ask you to log in, (like Facebook) but instead of actually proceeding to log you in, it sends the information to the scammer. But what can we do to protect ourselves from hazards coming from the internet? It’s simple.

First of all, we can’t trust anyone. Secondly, we have to keep our passwords and personal information safe. How many times have you tried to create a password based on your personal information, like age or your favourite color, and happened to share it in public separately? Everyone can list them and try to brute force your password, can’t they?
We have to use our heads before we post or share anything that could lead us to leaking our personal information. Additionally, we have to think before we click on any suspicious link because what are the odds that you are the only descendant of a Nigerian prince and all you would have to do in order to gain his wealth is give them your credentials? Merely a zero, so don’t let your guard down ever again when you are going to venture through the wide surface of the internet.

Relacja z realizacji projektu Erasmus + “eUropean Fellowship for Digital Citizenship”

Po półtorarocznej realizacji projektu za pomocą narzędzi zdalnych, w dniach 17-23 marca 2022 delegacja uczniów I Liceum Ogólnokształcącego wyruszyła na od dawna wyczekiwane spotkanie miedzynarodowe we włoskim Rapallo, gdzie razem z uczniami z Grecji, Rumunii, Hiszpanii, Włoch i Turcji (online) uczestniczyła w warsztatach dziennikarskich związanych z publikowaniem treści w internecie, dotyczącymi takich zagadnień, jak dobór treści, redagowanie, tworzenie marki, stosowanie grafik i infografik, czy wreszcie tworzenie bloga.

Oczywiście, nie zabrakło też czasu na zwiedzanie malowniczego Rapallo i pobliskiego Portofino, a nawet skosztowanie prawdziwej, włoskiej pizzy. Z żalem opuszczaliśmy ciepłe Rapallo, ale osłodą była świadomość, że już w maju widzimy się w greckiej Edessie!

ERASMUS+ GREECE/Expectations Vs Reality

The journey

The leaving was set for 2 a.m. in Rapallo; It was finally time to start this whole new chapter of our project and we were happier than ever. We set off really early, so we tried to sleep a bit both on the bus and the plane, but we hardly managed as the excitement and anticipation have been building up for weeks.

Firstly, we arrived at the airport of Bergamo Orio Al Serio, and we had breakfast there. Then we landed at Thessaloniki and started our trip by bus. It took us some time to realize that we actually landed in Greece: it was surreal.

 

Expectations

Indeed we had very high expectations for this trip,  as we have been constantly talking to the Greek guys we hosted here in Italy for weeks at that time. Looking forward to meeting our friends once again was the predominant feeling, we missed them lots; But also, getting to know new people and seeing the place we had been hearing of for a long time, Edessa.

As we started leaving the big city and getting in the rural area we noticed the first the differences in the landscape and the buildings. Everything we saw was very green, the houses small and every writing in Greek. In the beginning it was fun to try and read the sign with the correct pronunciation, but soon we realized that modern Greek was very different than Ancient Greek, that we study at school. Just like we expected. We also pictured the typical greek architecture sites and historical patrimony that we are used to study on books, and it was all there.

Reality

When we first arrived, screams and shouts. We warmly hugged our Greek friends, who greeted us kindly, and started to realize just how different our cultures were.

The place had barely any signal, different climate and different colours, but getting to know all of this was a beautiful experience.
All of the streets were clean of any rubbish, covered in stray cats and dogs, and it was very safe. Some locals told us it had been about 6 years since the last theft, which is impressive.

It’s time to come back

We made the most out of this project, lived every minute of this amazing opportunity. Indeed, when it was time to get back home, we were all sad. Romanians, Greeks, Armenians, Spanish, Polish and Italians: we were all crying. It has been  an incredible experience, we met new people and built new friendships, we were able to get to know new cultures, not only the Greek one but all the other countries’ too. Exchanging knowledge, habits, opinions…our points of view were widened by all of this.

On the way back to Rapallo we realized just how much this project gave us and that now we could count on a friend on the other side of the world.

One last day

For the last day before leaving, May 7th, we had the whole day for ourselves. First of all, we took some rest from the rush of adrenaline of the last days and decided to spend the last moments of our trip together. So we agreed to meet at 11 a.m. for breakfast in a really nice bar in the center of Edessa, where we ate some delicious pancakes. Afterwards, we walked to the waterfalls for the last visit in the place and we also admired a typical flower exhibition. There, we bought some presents for our kind host families and some souvenirs to take to Italy.  At 3 p.m. we returned home, we had lunch with our hosts and at 6 p.m. off we went.

The fare well party

The destination was the school’s fare well party, with all the Greek parents and the major of Edessa himself. Professors from each country made their speech and us pupils presented the slides of the presentation we’ve been working on for the past days. Everyone looked enthusiastic about our project and we couldn’t be more happy about that, but we soon realized that it was almost over. The friends that we bonded with the next day would be gone, back to their hometowns. But we erased this feeling, reserving it for the morning after, to spend a nice night together. We ate typical Greek food that every family brought on their own and, with international songs and the beautiful friendships we built, we had one last dance.
