Workshops

    1. The third out of four workshops titled “Omogućuju li nam pametni telefoni da budemo pametniji?”[Do smartphones make us smarter?] was organized as a part of the project Zašto mladi trebaju čitati popularnoznanstvene tekstove, i to odmah? [Why young people should read popular science texts right now?]. The project is immediately connected to The national strategy to revive book reading (2017-2022) and to the Year of Reading in Croatia. There were over 300 attendees (teachers of various school subjects and students). Anita Peti-Stantić and Vedrana Stantić were the moderators of the workshop who spoke to professors Goran Šimić and Igor Rudan.

      The topics discussed included the digital media and the value of various types of information, the influence of extended exposure to digital content on mental health of the youth, and the challenges of modernity. Particular attention was paid to the analysis of excerpts from books which encourage reading popular science books (published by Naklada Ljevak [Ljevak publishing house]).
