Strategies to Promote the Development of E-competencies in the Next Generation of Professionals: European and International Trends
This study analyses the effectiveness of policies, strategies and programmes that promote the acquisition of e-literacies, focusing in particular on the younger generation who will be joining the labour force in the next five to ten years. Based on the benchmarking of different studies about the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on students’ learning, this work proposes a redefinition of the term ‘e-competencies’. Moreover, a set of best practices for the development of the future e-competent labour force are identified. Although the scope for this paper is primarily the countries of the European Union, worldwide studies are also considered.
