Digital competence

Europe’s digital transformation will accelerate with the rapid advance of new technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, and cloud computing. Like previous major technological advances, digitisation affects how people live, interact, study and work. This is why the lifelong development of digital competence is important.

Equally, the appropriate use of digital technologies in education can benefit teaching and learning processes for all competences. Classrooms can be opened up to a world of research, industry and other cultures. Teachers and learners can be empowered by online resources and collaboration. Access to and use of digital technologies can help reduce the learning gap between students from high and low socioeconomic backgrounds. Personalised learning, including more varied forms of assessment, can result in increased motivation.

The European Commission supports teachers, schools, policymakers and other stakeholders with a range of online tools and resources. In this section you will find the latest articles, publications and other resources concerning digital education. Read more on this theme on the European Commission’s website.
