image A STEM Alliance Literature Review on the impact of ICT in education.

This report sets the scene on how Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education can improve students’ learning outcomes and skills development with the help of ICT, and how business can support education in these developments. This is an important topic because, at present, around 40% of European employers say they face difficulties in finding the right people with the right qualifications (EU Skills Agenda, 2016). Yet, at the same time, education providers are twice as likely as young people or employers to consider recent graduates adequately prepared for the labour market. Already the demand for digital and high-end skills exceeds supply, a gap which is expected to grow further in the future. Furthermore, 70 million Europeans lack basic skills, increasing their risk of unemployment and social exclusion. Using ICT in education can thus provide significant benefits for education, youth and employers. This research is based on a literature review carried out in 2016.
