What are the limitations of the plan? Our main concern is the narrow approach that exclusively focuses on “digital education”, leaving little room for holistic ICT and media curricula that integrate analogue and digital technologies in a coherent approach. We question the approach to encourage digital education from an early age, without a solid evidence-base pointing towards a positive effect of digital technology on learning outcomes and student well-being. The new EU-benchmark measuring the digital competence of 8th-graders will put more pressure on governments and schools to implement technology-based learning from an early age. We are therefore highly concerned that the plan further elevates already worrying levels of screen-time among kindergarten and primary school children.
