Since 2012, the Basque Government includes in its strategy the challenge of improving people’ digital skills to increase their employability and proximity to learning. Initiatives aimed at socializing and universalizing digital skills in the Basque society are encouraged. The digital skills are required to develop a capable, participative and co-responsible society, users of advanced and high impact digital services.
Mastery of digital skills increases competitiveness, quality of life and collective well-being. It is essential to stop considering technology as an end and to integrate it into the educational process in a transformative way. A transformation that promotes a more autonomous learning and more focused on the differential capabilities of people.
It is necessary to look for inclusive solutions, to adapt actions to the technological and socioeconomic reality of each environment, considering the equipment and the connectivity available in houses, in educational centers, in neighborhoods, etc. and adapting the policies to the available digital activities in each local environment.
