OFF LINE How to quit with Social Media.


After two years of implementation, the OFFLINE How to quit with Social Media Erasmus+ project came to an official conclusion. Partners gathered together on 19 January, 2024 in Lecce (IT) to celebrate the successful completion of the project and discuss together the impact and results achieved throughout these 24 months of work. The meeting was hosted by CPIA Lecce and saw the participation of seven other project partners from five different EU countries (Belgium, Finland, Italy, Romania and Spain). After a brief welcome and introduction by the staff of CPIA, partners focused on the content of the agenda, including: Summary and recap of lessons learnt, consolidated good practices and takeaways for further exploitation of results Content of the OFFLINE Vademecum, last formal project result finalised by partners before the official ending of the project The Vademecum for Slow Navigation provides for an in-depth guide into mindful digital practices and offers a roadmap for recalibrating individuals’ interactions within the digital sphere. This comprehensive guide is divided into different sections, each addressing different aspects of mindful online engagement, with the aim of mitigating the negative effects of excessive screen time and promoting a more balanced and mindful digital lifestyle. The Vademecum is available in online, multilanguage and open access format and users can access and download the content for free on the project website. The sections of the Vademecum are: Understanding slow navigation: slow navigation is a digital and social media approach that helps individuals to discover how to consume and engage social and digital media in a way that it feels more authentic. It allows people to reconnect with what matters and who matters. Mindful social media usage: it is no secret that social media has drastically changed our societies. From the way businesses are conducted, to how we interact and socialise, social media defined a new paradigm of “para-relations” that blurred the margins of reality as we know it. Practicing digital detox: digital detoxification involves eliminating excess exposure to digital media as a means of information and, more importantly, leisure. In other words, it is about taking a break from the digital overload we face every day, allowing more time for ourselves, away from screens. The dangers of social media addiction: today people post pictures, messages, comments, tweets and retweets and spend hours interacting in social media rather than in person. With the widespread use of social networking sites, social media addiction has become a more prominent problem especially among young people, but also in different age groups. Setting intentions for social media usages: social media is designed to grab your attention and keep you in the application for as long as possible. To do this, they exploit the lack of specific intentionality in our use of social media: in fact, we often just want to fill some time between one thing and another. But the lack of intentionality in our use of social media makes us easy prey to useless, if not harmful, content for our balance and mood. Balancing Offline and Online life: today's world requires the use of many digital devices, and the online environment is often necessary in people's lives. We need to know how to use technology to improve our communities and lives (both physical/offline and digital/online). Just as a balanced diet contributes to a state of physical health, so too a balance needs to be created between the physical and digital worlds, between physical/offline and digital/online activities, as moderation and balance ensure productivity and health. Time Management techniques for online activities: although it is most certainly true that the internet changed for the better the way and ease in which people can work, process information and acquire new knowledge, high exposure to screen time comes with several downside and negative effects on individuals. The most effective countermeasure that we have against the negative effects of extended screen time is proper and sound consideration of the quantity and quality of time that we decide to spend in front of digital devices. Navigating information overload: the advent of the World Wide Web eased exponentially the way in which we gather, collect and process information. Knowledge has never been more accessible then now, and with all the opportunities and resources available, whatever will ever be needed is just a few clicks away. However, this abundance of information generates the challenge of dealing with “too much information”: an overloading of resources and data that makes particularly difficult the process of selecting and consuming the exact information that we need. Embracing offline activities: embracing offline activities is crucial for our mental, emotional, and physical well- being. In this section, we will highlight the importance of cultivating offline hobbies, engaging in face-to-face social interactions, and prioritising self-care. We will also provide a list of suggested offline activities to help you lead a more balanced and fulfilling life. Assessing your current habits: Self-assessing your responsible use of social media and the internet is an important step in maintaining a healthy digital presence. In this section, we discuss the steps for evaluating your own online behaviour and how to set clear goals for online usage. We also provide a questionnaire for evaluating your online habits.   The Vademecum for Slow Navigation follow a long series of results that partners developed during implementation. Results of OFFLINE are designed and tailored to support and “teach” people on how to: reduce the time spent on social media by promoting a more fruitful use of media; develop among adults an aptitude and a culture of correct information through for example digital newspapers or magazines or other accredited sources. The Vademecum and all other project results are available from the official eLearning platform of the project:

The transnational meeting in Helsinki and the development of the Vademecum for Slow Navigation


On 23 October, the third transnational partner meeting of the 'Offline - How to quit with social media' project was held in Helsinki. The meeting this time was hosted by the Finnish organisation 'Learning for integration' and coordinated by Marja-Lisa Helenius. The respective project leaders were able to directly discuss the progress of the project and especially the latest project result, namely the Vademecum for Slow Navigation. The Vademecum for Slow Navigation is intended to be a manual for gradual detoxification from social media with the aim of helping people to limit and reduce the time spent on social media. In fact, over the past few weeks, after working out the general structure and agreeing on the different thematic sections of this last intellectual product, all partners have been working on the development of the section assigned to them. The meeting was therefore crucial to review all the contributions and start systematising them in order to arrive at the final version that is expected to be ready by the end of November and uploaded on the OER platform by december 2023. But the meeting was not all business! The partners were able to exchange views and new ideas for future collaborations, as well as enjoy pleasant breaks and a few walks around Helsinki's attractions! See you soon with the latest project news, in the meantime discover the courses of the Offline project available in the Training section of the platform! For more information visit:

The transnational project meeting has been scheduled at mid-project implementation and in conjunction with the achievement of a pivotal project’s milestone, which is represented by the consolidation of: Self-assessment tool to measure the target's attitude at surfing properly through cultural, informative, and scientific contents (available here:, a digital repository of webzines, cultural sources and National Press Agencies as a go-to web point for searching and filtering information on science, culture, well-being, information and entertainment etc. (, and a selection of case studies of initiatives to promote digital literacy, fake news’ prevention, digital culture and a positive attitude towards digital media literacy (
All of the above gave partners the opportunity to discuss during the meeting the training areas of interest that should be tackled by the OFF-LINE curriculum, including specific training topics and list of desired learning outcomes.
In total, 10 training courses stemmed from the analysis: Digital content creation: a practical guide Entertainment and culture in the digital age Protecting the environment Preventing and recognizing fake news Creatively using digital technologies Media Literacy Protecting health and well-being of digital environments and cyberbullying Browsing, searching and filtering information & digital content Engaging citizenship through digital technologies Evaluating data, information and digital content In a later stage of project’s implementation, the curriculum will be delivered transnationally to a cohort of targets’ representatives and stakeholders of interest (i.e., both direct beneficiaries of the training content as well as other professionals/educators operating in the fields of Adult education, digital and media literacy, etc.). An internal and common project plan for the roll-out in pilot version of the training content has been discussed and agreed on by partners during the same event
