DigiLEAD - Supporting School leaders to build a digital transformation strategy 

The DigiLEAD project

With the Covid-19 pandemic impacting all aspects of life and more than 90% of the student population learning partially or fully from home, a strong need emerges: to reform EU schools by upskilling the competences of school leadership teams to develop and implement digital strategies in their schools, while also supporting teachers and students to enhance their digital skills and competences. This is the main aim of the DigiLEAD project, the first funded project that focuses on supporting school leaders.



  • to support school leaders, teachers and staff to develop digital transformation strategies and digital skills

  • to develop school leadership teams’ competencies for leveraging free digital tools and resources for school improvement

  • to generally improve the capacity of schools and education systems to engage in online education

  • to improve the undertanding of parents on the factors influencing successful online learning and their role

Target groups:


  • primary and secondary school leaders

  • learning designers & educational technologists

  • policy makers & public authorities

  • students & parent
