08: Digital literacy for all

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Digitization is rapidly progressing world-wide. It changes how we live and learn and even the very future of work. It provides tremendous opportunities through transnational networks and creates new cooperative learning spaces, conferring new qualities of diversity and resilience to processes of learning. We have to explore the limits of 21st Century Learning, however. Austria has already and significantly engaged with the European Education, Research and Innovation Area and is eager to fully utilize the opportunities that this move offers.
