|General Digital Competence||Enabling Digital Competence||Care Specific Digital Competence|
The blue section in the diagram represents Domain B: Enabling digital competence in care. The 4 Competence Areas and 13 Competences therein address one of our principal research findings, namely that a digitally competent care worker or caregiver will be expected not only to apply general digital literacy but also to make the concept of digital competence meaningful and accepted in the context of his/her work. In the perspective of the two Application Levels this means enabling digital competence both in the carers’ own work practices and in the care recipients’ perception and adoption of digital technologies. The Domain B, therefore, contains soft skills, interpersonal abilities and transversal competences linked with digital knowledge, skills and attitudes.
