Discover France's Digital Education Agenda 2023-2027

The French Ministry of national education and youth has launched this year a series of measures to strengthen students' digital skills and accelerate the use of digital tools for student success. These measures are part of the so-called Digital Education Agenda 2023-2027.

The Digital Education Strategy 2023-2027 is a common strategic vision of digital technology for education, whose aim is to address several challenges:

  1. 1. Strengthen national and local cooperation between education stakeholders, around pedagogical projects mobilising digital technology where it is relevant; 
  2. 2. Develop students' digital skills, i.e., first, teach them digital citizenship, developing critical thinking and strengthening media and information literacy; secondly, to provide them with a foundation of reinforced digital skills; Finally, to promote the attractiveness of specialities and bachelor's degrees leading to digital professions 
  3. 3. Provide teachers with a clear offer combining digital tools and resources to put digital technology at the service of student success; encourage their use by offering more training and support, so that teachers can use them easily and in the most relevant way possible 
  4. 4. Develop the robustness, security, accessibility, quality and eco-responsibility of the Ministry's IT tools, to simplify the work of agents and thus increase the quality of the service provided.
