About the project


We live in a digitized world. Tasks done in former times by paperwork are today carried out on a digital base – for example, contact to authorities, tax declaration, travel and booking systems, shopping, and other tasks. To understand and to carry out such tasks digital competencies (DC) are crucial as society becomes more and more digital, hence the European Commission has launched the DigComp framework for citizens.

DC must be learned by the users, as it comprises not just knowledge, but also experiences competencies, skills, and attitudes. Without digital competencies, people become excluded from society. Learning digital competencies requires not just external motivation, but also that users feel that they can engage and be more independent citizens. In a technical and digital-dominated environment, inclusion demands that people feel capable to use the digital tools and means for their ends, in a useful and secure way. Many adults, despite being able and integrated into other spheres, need support to become competent and confident when using digital tools.
