The 21st century key competences, such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, learning to learn, digital and media literacy, civic responsibility, and personal cultural expression, clearly point to the need for strong individuals.
With regard to digital competence, it requires new knowledge which is evidently possessed by the younger generation. The problem of an aging population is a Europe-wide problem. Therefore, the development of a clear and effective direction for digitalization is one of the most important keys to a modern and quality education in Europe and the world at large.
