It enables you to work and communicate more effectively with others in digital environments. It is also a valuable skill in many jobs and careers, as employers often look for people who are able to solve technical problems and come up with innovative solutions.

Other important skills
By strengthening your digital skills, you not only demonstrate digital competence, but also other important skills. For example, it is important to be able to read well on paper and on the screen. You also need to know how to behave responsibly as a citizen and how to fully participate in social and community life. When you are able to use traditional and new forms of media, critically evaluate them, and handle them well, you have also worked on the competency of 'citizenship'. Because it is important to understand the role and functions of media in democratic societies. So by developing digital skills, you can not only make better use of digital technologies, but also better participate in society and be a responsible citizen. It is therefore really worthwhile to continue developing and applying digital skills.
