Lifelong learning strategies need to answer to the growing need for advanced digital competence for all jobs and for all learners.

Learning digital skills not only needs to be addressed as a separate subject but also embedded within teaching in all subjects. Building digital competence by embedding and learning ICT should start as early as possible, i.e. in primary education, by learning to use digital tools critically, confidently and creatively, with attention paid to security, safety, and privacy.

Teachers need to be equipped with the digital competence themselves, in order to support this process.
