Digital   skills   are   becoming   more   relevant   than ever,  because  of  the  digital  revolution  that  we  are experiencing in the labor market, but also due to the accelerated needs for them that COVID-19 lockdown measures  brought  about.  There  have  been  efforts to help develop and assess digital skills. Yet, despite these efforts, many people still face difficulties in developing an appropriate level of digital skills. In this brief, it is discussed why digital skills are relevant in the 21st  century  and  what  it  means.  Then, it is described how we can develop, train, and measure digital skills. Lastly, the implications of training and measurement of digital skills will be presented.
