The European Digital Learning Network – DLEARN – aims to embrace the challenges brought by the digital transformation in terms of digital skills mismatch and digital learning opportunities. The 47% of Europeans is not properly digitally skilled, yet in the near future 90% of jobs will require some level of digital skills.
We believe in the value of SHARING, CONNECTING, MULTIPLYING and ENHANCING the potential of our members, local territories and people.
Constant changes in economy and society have been urging governments to emphasize the contribution of education to a wide range of newly required skills and competencies. 21st Century skills are considered to be key enablers of responsible citizenship in a ICT-based economy.
A Successful education and training in our knowledge society depends increasingly on the confident,competent and innovative use of ICT.DLEARN wants to bring closer the experiences and voices of local territories and people to EU policies.
Nowadays this process is hindered by the presence of bigger interests, notably big corporations or umbrella organizations. With our activities and through our network we want to minimize this gap, through the promotion of bottom up initiatives, such as:
- Closer cooperation and enhancement of our activities to a higher level through periodic project labs;
- Tight networking activities and lobbying to achieve a fruitful accreditation of local needs to the relevant EU Commission DGs;
- Improving existing experiences and knowledge of digital learning through sharing of practices and creation of efficient business opportunities.
Dlearn is a network made of members based all over Europe, related to the field of Education & Training and ICT. In the framework of our activities, DLEARN – in cooperation with some of the most influent stakeholders in Europe in the sector of education and training– promoted a survey to collect trends and ideas about the
future development in Education & Training, in the era of digital transformation. The initiative is part of the Digital Skills and Job Coalition’s pledge awarded to Dlearn, not granted by any public funds. Every professional acting in the fields of Adult education, School, Higher Education or VET has been invited to take up the survey.
With the survey “What do you think about the future of digital Education and Training in EU?”, our objective was to understand the point of view of professionals in Education & Training adopting a bottom-up approach, thus to collect a feedback that will be shared among all European Countries and EU institutions from people that daily deals with improvements and changes in Education & Training.
