The digital age in Estonia

UNMFR participated in the fifth PLA (Peer Learning Activity) of the European project Pralines held on 6 and 7 October in Tallinn (Estonia).

PRALINE is a project funded by Erasmus+ which aims to strengthen and energize international networks of education and vocational training service providers by drawing on good practices.

The Estonian Association for the Promotion of Vocational Education organized lectures in schools Tallinna Teeninduskool et Harno. Interventions focused on digitization, automation and artificial intelligence and on improving education in the digital age. Estonia has 1,3 million inhabitants and is one of the most developed European countries in this field.

Participants who also shared their views on the Estonian education system and digital skills in adults include Merlin Tatrik, head of adult education policy at the Ministry of Education and Research, and Karin Kunnapas, responsible for adult education policy at the Ministry of Education and Research and director of the company Kood/Jõhvi which offers independent and self-taught education, Yngve Rosenblad, chief analyst at OSKA, the Estonian Qualifications Authority, Keerli Požogina, head of the digital competence project at Harno and Jevgenia Smirnova, head of the labor market training service at the Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund.

The partners visited the briefing center e-Estonia to learn about the latest digital developments developed by the country. Among them, the establishment of a medical portal for each inhabitant attached to the identity card.

The PRALINE partners presented their points of view motivating a debate initiating recommendations for good practice that could be implemented in the other countries that are part of the European project.

The European partners will meet at the sixth edition of the PLA in France next January, organized by the Union Nationale Des Maisons Familiales Rurales.
