building a strategic and operational vision of the educational policy;

gathering the key competencies and partnerships for its implementation;

developing an action plan to support and showcase the projects that fall under the policy;

change management and project evaluation

Building tomorrow’s digital skills – what conclusion can we draw from international comparative indicators?

This report, co-drafted by Simon Fau and Yasmeen Moreau, was produced for the Education Department of UNESCO in the framework of the 2018 Mobile Learning Week. It looks into the conditions and criteria affecting the development of digital skills among students and adults, building upon five international comparative studies and a sample of twelve countries with high digital skills among their population. From the results obtained, two questions are raised: what are key enabling factors to achieve high levels of digital skills, and how can other countries catch up?

Digital technology, an opportunity for school:

What will be the next steps in digital education? This book is a synthesis on the French situation. In the face of what might be perceived as a frenzy, it is neither a matter of maintaining fascination, nor of fear by developing the feeling that we can do nothing. This path invites us to seize the digital in education.
