European Commission Publishes New DigComp Guide

European CommissionThe European Commission has published a new user guide to the European Digital Competence Framework (DigComp). The guide is intended to highlight “inspiring DigComp implementations.” It provides a comprehensive overview of existing examples, describing their aims and achievements, as well as the benefits and challenges of using this framework. 

DigComp helps organisations to identify digital competence gaps and understand how to fill them. As a common reference for digital competence in Europe, it also helps policy makers to develop policies on digital skills and competences and can assist education and training providers in improving the digital competence of various target groups. 

ECDL Poland’s initiative to map the ECDL programme to DigComp is also highlighted in the guide. 

The full guide can be downloaded from the website of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.
