The Office of Global Insight and Policy, UNICEF, invites you to a discussion on digital literacy for children, looking specifically at different frameworks and definitions.
In today’s world, children need more than the foundational skills of literacy and numeracy to thrive. Increasingly they need to be digitally literate to fully participate in digital life, be safe online, and develop critical and analytical skills. In order to help UNICEF move towards a holistic approach to implementing digital literacy programs, a new paper reviews existing digital competence frameworks, analyzes their applicability to UNICEF’s needs and proposes a working definition of digital literacy. The study is based on a literature review, interviews with external experts, and a survey of 37 UNICEF offices about their digital literacy efforts and needs on the ground.
In this webinar, we will present the key takeaways of the scoping paper Digital Literacy for Children: Exploring definitions and frameworks.
