Digital Competency Framework
The Digital Competency Framework (DCF) was created by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur in 2019, as part of the Digital Action Plan for Education and Higher Education. The aim of this framework is to develop digital competency, which is defined as a set of skills necessary to the confident, critical, and creative use of digital technologies to achieve objectives with regard to learning.
Digital citizenship and competency play a role in all content areas; the DCF is relevant to all teachers and all subject areas. This is reflected in Competency 12 of the Reference Framework for Professional Competencies: Mobilize Digital Technologies.
