ECDL Foundation participated in dlearn’s annual conference in Brussels on 19 October. dlearn, the European Digital Learning Network, used the conference to discuss the opportunities and developments for education in a fast-growing digital era, and presented a draft edition of a new survey on the future of digital education and training in Europe.

During the interactive event, participants from a range of organisations, including policy-makers and educators, discussed how technology can be effectively incorporated into learning, how to deal with challenges like inequality in levels of ICT infrastructure and skills between different countries in Europe, and what concrete steps could be taken to improve education using digital technology.

ECDL Foundation is active in the area of digital skills in education, with a range of modules that support the development of computer skills for both teachers and students. Our, recently launched, ICT in Education module specifically seeks to address the problem of limited digital skills amongst teachers, which was a topic raised by a number of speakers and audience members at the event.
