Mòbils.edu is a Catalan Ministry of Education plan led by the General Directorate for Digital Innovation, Research and Design.
The purpose of the plan is to develop a digital education coverage framework to generate work environments in the schools of Catalonia that support the acquisition of digital competence befitting the 21st century, in accordance with the recommendations of the European Union and UNESCO.
