The European Digital Learning Network – DLEARN – is a non-profit association aiming to embrace the challenges brought by the digital transformation in terms of digital skills mismatch and digital learning opportunities. The 47% of Europeans is not properly digitally skilled, yet in the near future, 90% of jobs will require some level of digital skills. We believe in the value of SHARING, CONNECTING, MULTIPLYING and ENHANCING the potential of our members, local territories, and people.
As part of our activities, at DLEARN we undertake research, surveys, studies, and more, with the aim of continuously boosting European education and enhancing the awareness of European citizens towards the impact of digitalisation in their daily life.
While digital divide and digital literacy have entered into common use the term digital inclusion is still quite new. The term describes a number of interrelated concepts, such as widening access to digital technology and services, the acquisition of digital competencies and literacies necessary to make smart use of technologies and services, empowering people in using technology for both, self-determined life and as means to participate in society.
The Erasmus+ strategic partnership UPTAKE ICT is promoting actions, at national and international scale with the purpose of strengthening digital inclusion through building contents, digital instruments and analyzing the impact of ICT in a global world.
