Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigCompEdu)

The DigCompEdu framework, from  Joint Research Center (JRC) is directed towards educators at all levels of education, from early childhood to higher and adult education, including general and vocational training, special needs education, and non-formal learning contexts. The development of the framework is based on the analysis, mapping and clustering of the elements constituent of educators' digital competence, as these are detailed in existing national and international frameworks, self-assessment tools and certification schemes. The reference model thus generated will be subjected to extensive stakeholder consultations and complemented by proficiency levels. As final product a self-assessment tool, which allows educators to assess their own level of digital competence, will be developed.

A digital competence framework for educators at European level could reinforce national and/or regional initiatives by providing a common understanding of the digital competence needs for educators. The objective of DigCompEdu is to identify and describe the key components of educators' digital competence and to provide an instrument for (self-)assessment, based on research and stakeholder consultations.

 Abstract

As the teaching professions face rapidly changing demands, educators require an increasingly broad and more sophisticated set of competences than before. In particular the ubiquity of digital devices and the duty to help students become digitally competent requires educators to develop their own digital competence. On International and national level a number of frameworks, self-assessment tools and training programmes have been developed to describe the facets of digital competence for educators and to help them assess their competence, identify their training needs and offer targeted training. Analysing and clustering these instruments, this report presents a common European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu). DigCompEdu is a scientifically sound background framework which helps to guide policy and can be directly adapted to implement regional and national tools and training programmes. In addition, it provides a common language and approach that will help the dialogue and exchange of best practices across borders. The DigCompEdu framework is directed towards educators at all levels of education, from early childhood to higher and adult education, including general and vocational training, special needs education, and non-formal learning contexts. It aims to provide a general reference frame for developers of Digital Competence models, i.e. Member States, regional governments, relevant national and regional agencies, educational organisations themselves, and public or private professional training providers.

The DigCompEdu study builds on previous work carried out to define citizens' Digital Competence in general, and Digitally Competent Education Oragnisations (DigCompOrg). It contributes to the Commission's recently endorsed Skills Agenda for Europe and to the Europe 2020 flagship initiative Agenda for New Skills for New Jobs.
