da Silva, Ketia Kellen A.; Behar, Patricia A.
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (14th, Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, Oct 18-20, 2017)
This article presents the development of a digital competency model of Distance Learning (DL) students in Brazil called CompDigAl_EAD. The following topics were addressed in this study: Educational Competences, Digital Competences, and Distance Learning students. The model was developed between 2015 and 2016 and is being validated in 2017. It was created based on theoretical references and the mapping of competences in two classes, one a strictly distance learning undergraduate course and another a hybrid graduate course, to list the digital competences of students in this modality. As a result, a set of competences was obtained. It was analyzed by the DL students and specialists. Based on the results, the model was composed of seven general competences: (1) Computer use; (2) Internet and online communication; (3) Communication; (4) Information Management; (5) Creation and development of digital content; (6) Virtual profile management; and (7) Online Attendance. Currently, this model is in the final validation phase. The aim is that research results will support both the students and professors in the construction of digital competences in the DL modality.
