Digital technologies are present in our daily life, to the point of permeating most areas and becoming an essential element in them. In order to properly adapt to the rapid changes these tools bring along, it is vital for individuals to develop and improve digital skills; which have been acknowledged by the European Commission as highly relevant for entering today’s labour market, and are foreseen to grow in demand.
