The working group on digital learning was established at the end of 2015, as a place for members and partners to share views, experiences, best practices, initiatives and to generate support for (joint) advocacy, both at a European and National level. Digital learning and media/digital literacy feature high on the agenda and list of priorities of some of the LLPlatforms’ members, national governments but are also a key priority at the European level.
In 2015 and 2016, LLLP will focus on issues related to digital and media literacy. In some countries, specific programmes have been put in place to answer to challenges such as the increase of online hate speech, the effects of bullying or data protection, especially when using social media and some LLPlatform members are involved in concrete initiatives. Digital literacy is also about making sure that learners have the necessary skills to benefit from technology and teachers to pass on their knowledge and skills to their students. Besides, more often than not, digital literacy conditions one’s employability.
