Registration Educational Challenge 2016

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.

A rethink of the educational process is needed in order to guarantee that current and future generations will benefit fully from the transformative potential of new technologies. The goal of the Educational Challenge 2016 is to identify the best projects and initiatives that have proven their effectiveness in improving students’ digital skills and helping to prepare them for living and working in the digital society of the future.
