Beyond Covid-19: Digital Skills 0 Reply

As COVID-19 continues spreading in many countries and will stay with us for a while, posing a serious threat to our health, security and lives, our societies are facing unprecedented challenges, especially with regard to social interaction, information, health, education and even global governance and leadership.

In response to the spread of COVID-19 and the immediate consequences of this unprecedented crisis, members of Dialogue Café network convened a global videoconference cycle of sessions aimed at sharing ideas and strategies with the aim of analysing how best to minimise the paradigm disruption worldwide.

Dialogue Café Network in cooperation with its partners and other relevant stakeholders from affected countries and beyond, are coming together for connecting ideas and experiences around some of the major issues provoked by this pandemic. This cycle of sessions will focus in the fields of digital competencies, mental health, information, and global governance with the aim of providing a digital space to specialists, representatives of public, private and third sectors, entrepreneurs as well as the general public to share experiences, ideas and expertise in responding to this new emergency.

Digital Skills Beyond Covid-19

Since March 2020, most countries in the world have been in lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic increasing exponentially the use of digital services allowing videoconferencing and online collaboration by people, public institutions, private companies and of course, entrepreneurs with the aim of keeping the work going on while staying safe at home. However a high percentage of the society locked and forced to work from home had to quickly learn how better use these tools to continue working during the lockdown. Digital competence, which refers to the confident and critical usage of the full range of digital technologies for information, communication and basic problem-solving in all aspects of life, is nowadays one of the eight key competences. According to the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens (DigComp) it includes 5 areas five areas (information and data literacy; communication and collaboration; digital content creation; safety; and problem solving) and 21 competences. However, only 31% of the EU population possess advanced internet user skills according to the Digital Agenda Scoreboard 2019 and 11% have never been online.

In this framework, Dialogue Café Network would like to address how better to increase digital competence and digital skills, especially after the pandemic through the following questions and other proposed by participants in the discussion: i) what are the most relevant skills required to work online; ii) how can companies and institutions better strengthen employees´ skills for the digital age?; iii) which are the best solutions and measures to navigate Europe’s economy through the crisis provoked by the covid-19 pandemic?

Online debate organised will take place via Dialogue Café videoconference system. Registration is mandatory. The debate will be moderated by a member of Dialogue Café Network through questions and the exchange of experiences. External participants will have the possibility of sharing their questions through chat to experts and guest involved.
