The Croatian Digital Literacy Network was formed at the end of 2020 with the aim of strengthening cross-sectoral cooperation and capacity building for research and development of the digital society in the Republic of Croatia. The network conducts scientific research, based on research develops guidelines for the development of public policies, and helps develop the human resources necessary for their implementation.
The Network has three main goals:
- Develop digital citizenship
- Develop digital education
- Facilitate digital transformation of non-IT occupations
The Network has produced six studies so far. In the first study, the Network explores the need to develop public policies for the digital inclusion of elderly people and people with disabilities, as well as residents of rural areas and islands. The second study explores the alignment of DigCompEdu’s digital competences and teaching practices with existing and future needs and the EU Digital Education Action Plan. The third study deals with the impact of lifelong learning of mathematics teachers on students’ educational outcomes, and the fourth investigates methods for developing students’ interdisciplinary competencies by creating computer games. In the fifth and sixth surveys, the Network examines the needs of digital transformation of non-IT occupations in the cultural and creative industries and healthcare.
A conference on Digital Inclusion will be organized on February 17. See the conference programme on this website (in Croatian). Find out more about the Network on the Network’s website (in Croatian).
