Eurydice report looks at the state of digital competences within the field of education
3 October 2019
Eurydice has published the report Digital Education at School in Europe, which analyses the current state of digital competences within the field of education. The report sheds light on two different perspectives of digital education: the development of digital competences relevant to learners and teachers on the one hand, and the pedagogical use of technologies to support, improve and transform learning and teaching on the other.
The report provides an overview of school curricula and learning outcomes related to digital competence. It also addresses the development of teacher-specific competences during initial teacher education and throughout their career as well as the assessment of students’ digital competences and the use of digital technologies for assessment. Finally, the report gives some insight into current national strategies and policies on digital education at school. The annexes add country-specific information on school curricula, teacher competence frameworks, top-level strategies and agencies supporting digital education at school. The report covers digital education at primary and general secondary levels for the school year 2018/19 in all 28 EU Member States, as well as Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey – 43 education systems in total.
