The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition calls for pledges to address the surging need for digital skills and solutions in these exceptional times. Across Europe, teaching and learning has moved online. While teachers in some schools and regions may be familiar with different Digital Education platforms, they are suddenly in a position where they may have to lead in producing, sourcing and manipulating digital learning content while ensuring that learner progression continues and is fairly assessed.

The crisis generated by the spread of Covid-19 has arguably led to more technology-supported change in schools in a few weeks than in the past 20 years. Digital technologies are playing a key role in providing much-needed continuity and support for teachers, learners and families in ways that would have been unimaginable, if not impossible, only a few years ago.

With COVID-19 forcing schools across Europe to close, many teachers, students and families are discovering emergency remote teaching and learning for the first time. How are policy-makers supporting schools and what challenges are they facing?

In an attempt to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus disease, 87% of world's student population, over a billion and a half young people, are unable to attend class because of nationwide school and university closures in 165 countries.

Did you know that more than 40% of the estimated 6000 languages spoken in the world are in danger?
