Working together to support education for all 

 

Digital technologies are increasingly delivering education, knowledge and skills in new and innovative ways. This can make education more efficient and accessible. It can provide opportunities to increase outreach to more isolated groups of people of all ages. Use of technologies can also help ensure equal access and quality of education, and reduce the digital skills gap in employment. 

While the use of digital technologies comes naturally to some, this is not the case for all. 

During our Thought Leadership consultation, we discussed how Government, education providers, industry and the so-called ‘Generation Z’ (those who have grown up using technology) need to work together to support education for all, as well as lifelong skills development. We concluded that education, training and knowledge transfer (whether peer-to-peer, young-to-old, community-to-community) will play an increasingly important role in the future adoption and development of digital technologies in society.
