A good practice for developing a digitally mature school system at national level was presented and an approach to critical digital literacy that goes beyond functional ICT skills and e-safety was explored. Finally, representatives of the European social partners, the education technology industry and the European Agency contributed to the seminar with their opinions.
- Schools with a digital strategy and a good technical infrastructure offer better working conditions and development opportunities for teachers and lead to lower digital stress;
- The integration of digital technologies in schools must be tailored to the educational context in which they are used;
- Teachers' digital competence must encompass a broader range of critical digital competences that go beyond functional technical skills;
- A teacher-centred approach is not just about the individual teacher, but must be embedded in the whole organisational culture of a school;
- Health and safety aspects must be integrated into the planning phase of educational technology development (prevention by design).
