Kerameus, Pierrakakis Discuss Actions for the Digital Transformation of Education

ATHENS — Actions for the digital transformation of education and the digital strengthening of the educational community were at the centre of the meeting between Education Minister Nikis Kerameus and the Minister of Digital Governance Kyriakos Pierrakakis on Tuesday.

"The pandemic was a catalyst for the digital transformation of education. We discussed actions for the further upgrade and development of digital systems, always in excellent cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Governance. Building on the precedents in e-learning, we work on a daily basis for improved schools, the improved universities of the future, with the aim of developing digital skills, modernising networks, training our teachers. Our goal is an overall upgrade of the educational project, the modernisation but also the simplification of – until now bureaucratic and time-consuming – procedures, for a better, faster and even more transparent service of the entire educational community," Kerameus underlined.

On his part, Pierrakakis pointed out that "education is the most important mechanism for reducing inequalities. Thanks to the education system, Greece managed to unleash its great potential and change its course for the better. Over the entire spectrum of studying, technology comes to empower citizens, from the first enrollment of children in kindergarten to the acquisition of a university degree and the publication of dissertations. For all sectors of education, digital tools are used as a lever of progress and an accelerator of growth, both personal and social."
