Abstract

The essay critically discusses the ways in which DigComp can be used as a theoretical framework to support media education programs in schools. Since 2006, digital competence has been one of the eight key competencies that were defined by the European Union for lifelong learning. As reported in the recommendations, these competencies are considered to be fundamental for each individual in a knowledge-based society. DigComp (Digital Competence Framework for Citizens) is the most important framework that can help students achieve digital competence. It was released by the Joint Research Center and is mainly meant for use by government agencies, educational institutions and enterprises. DigComp focuses specifically on the acquiring of knowledge, recollection, comprehension, application, evaluation, and creation, without explaining the fundamental activities of critical analysis and reflection directly and extensively. The latter two dimensions form an integral part of the fundamental objectives of media education, which could enable students to make a truly conscious and responsible use of the new media.
