DigCompEdu – The European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators
DigCompEdu is a scientifically sound background framework provided by the JRC (Joint Research Center) of the European Comission. It provides a general reference frame to support the development of educator-specific digital competences in Europe. It helps teachers/trainers to discover the level of their personal Digital Competences and provides recommendations on how to develop further.
The framework helps to address the needs of teachers and trainers, and to find activities and material to improve their Digital Competences. The proficiency levels of Digital competencies are determined following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages -model. DigCompEdu works in a similar way: it describes 22 professional competences organised in six areas. Those areas focus on non-technical skills and detail on how technology can be used to enhance and innovate education and training – not only in schools, but also in workplaces, universities and so on.
