Digital Competence at the intersection of social values and identity: In policy, practice and theory?

 

Authors: Camilla Hällgren, Carina Granberg, Anna Rantala, Åsa Björk och Siv Johansson 

In Swedish and European policies, education is identified as one key agent for advancing opportunities of digitalization and delivering digital transformations. In Sweden the National Digitalization Strategy for the School System was presented 2017. Later, the Swedish national curricula were revised with stronger writings about digital competence and put into effect on the 1st of July 2018. Digital competence is said to apply to all students and staff members from preschool to adult education. In short, these revisions propose, abilities to programming as central, but also abilities to solve problems, to use of digital technology creatively while turning ideas into action, work with digital texts, media and tools, understand and use digital systems and services, to critically approach media and information as well as understand the impact of digitalization on society and individuals. Digitalization policies are indeed comprehensive, yet, we argue there are still important matters calling for attention. For instance, what does competence mean in relation to digitalization? What does digital competence mean in relation to social values in the curricula? And, what does adequate digital competence mean in relation to actual, everyday practices in schools and more widely? This presentation reports early results of an ongoing critical discourse analysis of the intersection of digital competence and social values, in policy and practice. It is argued that there is a discursive gap that needs to be bridged by ethical considerations. It is suggested that if the government’s digital agenda is to be truly in human service, bring about a bright future and a sustainable digital transformation of Sweden, components of social values, what it is to exist as a human; that is what technology does to the human condition, need to be included and equally relevant to other components of digital competences.
