Competence-based education was the topic of a recent conference organised by KeyCoNet and attended by ECDL Foundation. KeyCoNet launched their recommendations for policy makers and practitioners on how to better implement competence-based education, an approach that significantly departs from traditional education, with a focus on equipping students with key competences, including digital competences, which enable them to adjust to the changing future environment.

Participants discussed how 21st century teaching must become transversal, project based, and increasingly digital and collaborative, in a situation where many teachers still lack knowledge and skills to effectively use digital technologies. In Poland, for example, only 41% of teachers use computers in the classroom at least once a week.
