|Sumár projektu:||The Council of the European Union, on their recommendation from the 22 May 2018 on Key competences for lifelong learning, established a framework of eight key competences to be developed in all citizens of the EU. This recommendation defines Digital competence as the competence that “involves the confident, critical and responsible use of, and engagement with, digital technologies for learning, at work, and for participation in society. It includes information and data literacy, communication and collaboration, media literacy, digital content creation (including programming), safety (including digital well-being and competences related to cybersecurity), intellectual property related questions, problem solving and critical thinking.”
According to the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) report from 2018; in 2017, 43% of the EU population had an insufficient level of digital skills, and 17% had not at all. There are proportionally more men than women with at least basic digital skills (respectively, 60 % and 55 %). In addition, only about 31 % of people with low education levels or no education have at least basic digital skills. This figure is also significantly lower among those living in rural areas (49 %), who tend to be relatively older, than for their city-dwelling counterparts (63 %). The EC paper Digital Education Plan states that 51% of European Citizens don’t feel informed about how to deal with cyberthreats. The lack of digital skills also puts adult people at risk of marginalization, 42% of citizens with no computer skills are inactive in the labour market (Source: The European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens).
