Motion for a European Parliament resolution on the role of technology in teaching and in the classroom  

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Council conclusions (2015/C 172/05),

–  having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas digital competence involves the confident and critical use of Information Society Technology (IST) for work, leisure and communication;

B.  whereas this competence is founded on the basic ability to use ICTs (information and communication technologies) and to use a computer to receive, assess, produce and exchange information and to communicate and take part in collaborative networks via the internet;

C.  whereas using ICTs prepares students to play an active, informed role in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are constantly evolving as new technologies become available;

1.  Calls on the Commission to encourage the correct use of the internet in schools, in the light of the ISTAT statistics which show that young people who have access to the net do not have the skills needed to hold down steady employment.
