It is clear from the regional breakdown that these topics receive very varied attention across EIs regions. The topic that has received the least attention is the collection and use of data on learners and staff.

Q40: Does your organisation offer courses/workshops on the governance of digital technologies in education? (for instance, training for policy dialogue on the topic) This question is linked to the above, but also to question 38 where the percentage of members belonging to the ‘not knowledgeable’ group ranges from 20% in Asia-Pacific, to 40% in Europe and 47% in Africa. The vast majority were, though, deemed to be ‘quite knowledgeable’. In the below on a global aggregate scale we can see that the vast majority of unions do not offer courses or workshops on the specific topic of the governance of digital technologies.
