Background

Developing digital competency is critical to modernizing Quebec society. Some professions will be heavily impacted by new disruptive technologies, such as artificial intelligence, while other as-yet-unknown jobs will emerge in response to these new paradigms. People will need digital skills to cope with the technological innovations that are coming in the years ahead. Digital competency is closely tied to professional development for all workers in the 21st century. That’s why everyone must be able to use the digital resources available to keep their professional skills up to date. How can we help professionals and other citizens improve their digital competency in all its dimensions to better support the development of tomorrow’s society?

The aim of the framework is to develop digital competency, defined as a set of skills necessary for the confident, critical and creative use of digital technologies to achieve objectives tied to learning, work, leisure, and inclusion or participation in society. The framework’s dimensions and their respective elements are designed to help individuals to become increasingly autonomous in their use of digital technologies in educational or professional contexts and in everyday life so that they are able, for example, to select the best digital tools to perform a particular task.
