With the 2006 European Recommendation on Key Competences, Digital Competence has been acknowledged as one of the 8 key competences for Lifelong Learning by the European Union. Digital Competence is a transversal key competence which enables acquiring other key competences (e.g. language, mathematics, learning to learn, cultural awareness).
This report is part of a project on Digital Competence (DIGCOMP), launched by JRC-IPTS IS Unit under an Administrative Agreement for DG Education and Culture with an objective to contribute to better understand and develop Digital Competence in Europe. The report also contributes to the second work package of the project, by mapping and analyzing case studies where Digital Competence is being developed, acquired, and assessed or certified.
