Digitalisation, globalisation, climate and demographic change are reshaping work and social environments as well as generating a growing demand for higher levels of non-routine, cognitive skills and new types of skills. Effective education systems require effective leadership at every level, from policy to practice. There is a clear role for governments, employers as well as each individual to carry on this path ensuring the availability of necessary support mechanisms or contributing and committing in other ways. Estonia is an excellent example where relevant stakeholders aim for the same objectives together and where life-long learning is not just a popular combination of words in different strategies and reports but is being successfully implemented for years now.

New technologies are acquired as separate skills and as integrated into other subjects. In a technology-rich and individualised learning environment, the teacher’s work becomes data-based. By using data on pupils’ choices and progress on their study, the teacher’s profession is becoming more diverse. The focus of the content of the teacher’s work moves towards guiding learners, directing information choices and activities, and feedback. Estonia is considered as one of the best countries for digital maturity in the whole country scale. The mindset for valuing education and modern society should grow already from early ages and kindergarten. Every person and education level counts.

電子化、全球化、氣候和人口改變正重新塑造工作和社會環境,同時亦令社會對非常規、認知技能和新種類技能的需求日益提升。有效的教育制度需從政策到實踐,每個層面均須有效的領導團隊參與;無論是政府、僱主,甚或是每個人在這教育路上擔當鮮明的角色,確保能提供所需要的支援機制,或能以其他方式作出貢獻和承諾。愛沙尼亞正是一個典範,國家展現出不同持份者如何追求同一目標,又如何將終身學習成功落實多年,而非像口號般放於各個策略和報告中。

新科技的出現,既能培育不同技能,又可融入於不同學科中。處身於科技發達和着重個人化的學習環境,教師的工作變成以數據為本。善用學生學習進度與選擇的數據,教師發揮其專業變得多樣化。教師的工作重點轉化為帶領學生思考,引導他們進行資訊性的選擇與活動,並提供回饋。愛沙尼亞被視為全國推行電子化最成熟國家之一,價值教育和現代社會的觀念從幼兒園及幼年就開始發展,讓每個人及每個教育程度都對整個教育系統起舉足輕重的作用。
