A study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that less than 40% of teachers consider themselves ready to use digital technologies in teaching, with large differences from one EU Member State to another. The crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has the effect of an unprecedented shift to online learning and the use of digital technologies. According to the analysis in the 2020 National Education and Training Monitor despite the investments that EU Member States have made in recent years in the digital infrastructure dedicated to education and training, large disparities persist, both between and within countries. Contrary to the widespread view that today's students represent a generation of "digital age natives," the survey results indicate that many of them are not developing their digital skills at a sufficient level. In all the countries surveyed, more than 15% of the student population have insufficient digital skills.
