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.
