International Journal of Digital Literacy and Digital Competence (IJDLDC) Volume 5, Issue 4

Book Description

The International Journal of Digital Literacy and Digital Competence (IJDLDC) creates and develops a common framework for the analysis of computer proficiency and digital competence. This journal proposes new instruments for everyday instruction, without excluding lifelong learning and the more general problem of community and social knowledge, and suggests complete integration of digital literacy and digital competence in youth. Providing the latest technological advances, theories, instruments, and experiences for the introduction of digital literacy in schools and society, the journal creates a common space for the discussion on digital literacy and digital competence between research and policy and provides support to local, national, and supranational structures for the enhancement of electronic education. The journal pays also special attention to the influence that new learning spaces have in youth education and to the connection between citizenship and digital education instruments, focusing on social networking, socio-technologies, collaborative learning environments and strategies.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Digital Literacy Concepts and Definitions: Implications for Educational Assessment and Practice
  • The Use of Digital Texts as an Alternative Method of Determining Functional ICT Literacy Levels
  • A Holistic Approach for Managing School ICT Competence Profiles towards Supporting School ICT Uptake
  • Mitigating Online Threats While Promoting Scholarship Through Awareness-Raising Interventions: A Study of Young People's Technology Use, Risky Online Behavior, and Literacy of Cyber Awareness Practices
