On 8 April 2022, 14:30 – 15:30 CEST, DEL4ALL conducted the last of the series of coffee talks with digital education experts from DEL4ALL community. The main theme of the last session was “Connecting dots and beyond“.

Roles of technological solutions in education sector among the issues with respect to the data collection and the choice of solutions that provide value to the teachers and learners has been discussed. Additionally the role that general digital competencies play in the 21st century has been pointed out as a major point that requires attention. This has a direct impact on the curricula for training teachers and educators, as they need to be enabled to teach these competencies and allow them to flourish in the teaching and learning settings, so this should be treated as a cross-cutting task in all areas of education. Policy alignment at the EU level is needed to accelerate the adoption of competency-based social and emotional learning programmes in member states’ schools and curricula. This requires programmes that assess the long-term impact of the digital transformation in education and the effectiveness of digital education policies.
