DCF

The DCF ( Digital Competence Framework) has been developed to be inclusive of all learners aged 3 to 16-plus. It covers the development of skills from the earliest stages that very young children need to learn. For learners with additional learning needs this incorporates ‘Routes for Learning’ skills, which are the skills that form the foundation for other, higher skills to be developed.
 
This approach seeks to view the learner holistically and provide several pathways of possible development, broken down into small steps and individualised for each learner. Many learners will pass quickly though these stages; for others these skills need to be taught specifically, taking into account individuals’ specific strengths and needs. This ensures there are the necessary developmental steps to using technology in creative ways

The DCF comprises four high-level strands. These are subdivided into elements which, in turn, are supported by classroom task ideas.
