The current workplace increasingly asks for employees with highly digitally skilled knowledge who produce and distribute ideas and information. As such, understanding the factors behind differences in the level of various 21st-century digital skills is of decisive importance. Moreover, the Covid-19 pandemic has presented humanity with a huge challenge to our known infrastructures – education systems, healthcare provision, social support, businesses, and community cohesion. At the same time, we have all been forced to learn new digital skills. New skills to continue learning, teaching, working, running a business, communicating with loved ones, and even discerning what information we can trust. During Digital Skills & Employability session, the panelists discussed and presented how digital skills and digital tools unlock and amplify the subjects of STE(A)M Education and Digital Social Innovation, how they solve real world problems and add value by boosting citizens’ employability at local, national and EU level.
The sessions is available for view on demand (more information at rgc.gr).
