INCoDe.2030 releases Digital Competence Dynamic Reference Framework
The INCoDe.2030 programme released the Digital Competence Dynamic Reference Framework (Quadro Dinâmico de Referência de Competência Digital – QDRCD), a tool for population' digital skills' evaluation.
Based on the Digital Competence Framework for Citizens, the QDRCD has three objectives: to support the definition of policies and strategies; to design education programmes; and to evaluate and certificate skills, either by self-diagnosis or by certifying entities.
Information Literacy, Communication and Citizenship, Content Creation, Security and Privacy, and Solutions Development are the five competences areas addressed, which level of proficiency, including examples of daily use, ranges from basic to highly specialized.
The document was developed with the collaboration of the National Agency for Qualification and Vocational Education (ANQEP), the Directorate-General for Education (DGE), Directorate-General for the Qualification of Public Workers (INA), Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT), Employment and Professional Training Institute (IEFP) and António Moreira and Margarida Lucas, both from University of Aveiro.
