The European Digital Learning Network ETS – DLEARN – is a no-profit association. It aims to embrace the challenges brought by the digital transformation in terms of digital skills mismatch and digital learning opportunities. The 47% of Europeans are not properly digitally skilled, yet in the near future 90% of jobs will require some level of digital skills and numerous opportunities in terms of jobs that are going to shape the labour market.
We believe in the value of SHARING, CONNECTING, MULTIPLING, ENHANCING the potential of our members, local territories and people.
Constant changes in the economy and society have been urging governments to emphasize the contribution of education to a wide range of newly required skills and competencies. 21st Century skills are considered to be key enablers of responsible citizenship in an ICT-based economy.
A successful education and training in our knowledge society depend increasingly on the confident, competent and innovative use of ICT.
DLEARN wants to bring closer the experiences and the voices of local territories and people to EU policies. Nowadays this process is hindered by the presence of bigger interests, notably big corporation or umbrella organizations. With our activities and through our network we want to minimize this gap, through the achievement of bottom-up initiatives, such as:
- Closer cooperation and enhancement of our activities to a higher level through periodic project labs
- Tight networking activities and lobbying to achieve a fruitful accreditation of local needs to the relevant EU Commission DGs
- Improve existing experiences and knowledge of digital learning through sharing of practices and creation of efficient business opportunities
