Introduction > DigComp 2.2 Framework

This framework addresses digital transformation and is aimed at providing a shared definition of digital competences. DigComp, as the EU-wide framework for developing and measuring digital competences in March 2022, has been published in its 2.2 version, which takes into account developments in the field of AI as well. DigComp 2.2, is considered a wider reference framework for citizens’ competences and does not target specific levels of Education, but nevertheless provides a useful basis for educational innovation, taking into account the labour market and societal changes.

The DigComp conceptual model is based on a matrix of five dimensions (information and data literacy; communication and collaboration; digital content creation; safety; problem-solving) with four progressive overall levels (foundation, intermediate, advanced, and highly specialised), articulated in eight granular levels. This matrix is independent of qualifications, and levels are built on three main areas of mastery: (1) complexity of tasks, (2) autonomy, and (3) cognitive domain (remembering, understanding, applying, evaluating, and creating).

For our purposes we have focused mainly on the areas of Competence 1: Information and data literacy (level 5 to 6), 2: Communication and collaboration (level 4 to 6), 3: Digital content creation (level 4 to 6), 5: Problem solving (level 4 to 5)

For some training we have also included area 4: Safety at level 3.

The Learning outcomes which we used to plan our trainings as well as the competences which were required or achieved are listed in the detailed documents of the training events:
