The project Educational Challenge 2016 seeks to identify projects and initiatives that have improved students’ digital skills and helped to prepare them to work in the digital society of the future.

How can students’ skills be improved so that they can take full advantage of the digital society of the future? In societies where technology is increasingly setting social and workplace trends, skills and competencies must be aimed at their full development within highly digital contexts. It is not just about focusing on managing technological tools but also developing the capacity to learn, work with others and be creative within our digital society.
