The Digital Competence Wheel’s purpose is to provide an overview of digital competences, and offer concrete tools to how these competences can be elevated and improved.
The Digital Competence Wheel is theoretically based on a major EU research project called DIGCOM (Digital Competence Framework) derived from the European Parliament´s inclusion of digital competence as one of the eight core competences for lifelong learning.
The Digital Competence Framework for Educators describes the level of being digitally competent. The EUVHS-Project will use DigCompEdu as a basis for the upcoming production of a practical toolkit.
DigCompEdu covers 22 competences organised in six Areas. The framework is directed towards any educator regardless of education level, age of students etc. or type of school.
