Digital Education Plan

The European Commission has launched an EU-wide public consultation to gather the views of citizens and stakeholders on the future of digital education during the COVID-19 recovery period and beyond. The consultation will contribute to the Commission’s proposal for a renewed Digital Education Action Plan, expected in September 2020. Digital transformation is one of the Commission’s priorities as set out in its flagship strategy, A Europe fit for the digital age. The new Digital Education Action Plan will form a key aspect of the Next Generation EU recovery instrument. The Action Plan will support Member States, education and training institutions and citizens in their efforts to adapt to the digital transition and help ensure a fair and inclusive recovery for all.
