A draft report by the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education has examined the ‘challenges, opportunities, and lessons for EU policy design’ on education in the digital era. The report, which notes the high percentage of people in the EU who still lack basic digital skills, and the changing nature of work, which increasingly requires advanced digital skills, argues that it is essential to properly assess and monitor digital skills.

Criticising a fragmented approach by EU institutions to digital education, the report calls for fairer and more strict evaluation of its Digital Action Plan and argues that assessment methods for digital skills must be up-to-date and dynamic.

The full report can be downloaded from the website of the European Parliament.
