Proficiency levels of digital competencies
In favour of practicality, the EDUdig e-handbook differentiates three proficiency levels of digital competencies:
- A level or beginner level
Beginners have had very little contact with digital tools or have just started using them. Beginners need guidance to expand their competencies.
- B level or integrator level
Integrators use and experiment with digital tools for a range of purposes, trying to understand which digital strategies work best in which contexts.
- C level or expert level
Experts use a range of tools confidently, creatively, and critically to enhance their professional activities. Experts continuously expand their repertoire of practice.
While the basic level of the e-handbook themes corresponds to a B level, in addition on several occasions throughout the e-handbook specific topics and information are given on A, B and C levels, thus guiding the learners through different aspiration levels of digital competencies.
For illustration randomly selected examples for A, B and C level competencies are given on the right-hand side.
