The Digital Citizenship Education (DCE) Expert Group identified ten competence domains that served as criteria to analyse and categorize the practices gathered by the multi-stakeholder consultation report.


The expert group identified some competences areas that, somehow, recurred in order to reach a set of competences that would be the intersection between all of them.

The result of this intersection lead to the identification of these 10 digital domains in order to match all the dimensions considered in the other frameworks.
 

The ten domains are conceptually grouped in three groups with the intention to define better the competences that Digital Citizens should develop:

The first group, Being online, includes domains that relate to those competences needed in order to access the digital society and to freely express oneself.
 

>> Access and Inclusion   >> Learning and Creativity   >> Media and Information Literacy


The second group, Wellbeing Online, includes domains that can help the user to engage positively in the digital society.
 

>> Ethics and Empathy   >> Health and Wellbeing   >> ePresence and Communications


The third group, It is my right!, refers to competences related to the rights and responsibilities of citizens in complex, diverse societies in a digital context.
 

>> Active Participation  >> Rights and Responsibilities 
>> Privacy and Security  >> Consumer Awareness

These ten digital domains have been identified by a work of comparison and synthesis between the most relevant Digital Citizenship Competences’ frameworks currently in use.
