Survey instrument for the measurement of children’s and adolescents’ digital skills

Development of a conceptual framework and proposals for performance testing of technical-operational and transferrable skills measurement (task 3.3), resulting in a survey instrument for the measurement of children's and adolescents' digital skills in task 4.3.

Inventory of (f)actors for the design of the questionnaire

Transfer of knowledge from the secondary analysis in WP2 into an inventory of social, psychological and media (f)actors whose roles in predicting and moderating digital skills acquisition and wellbeing will be tested in the school survey questionnaires in WP4 through three new survey rounds.

Report on the interviews with experts on digital skills in schools and the labour market

The findings of the interviews with experts on education and the labour market (Task 3.1) will be presented in this report, with a focus on the analysis of the role of digital skills education in schools and informal learning settings, and the (digital) skills needed in the 21st century to cope with technological transformations in the labour market.

Report on the antecedents and consequences of digital skills

Based on the systematic evidence mapping (Task 2.1), a report will be written on the antecedents and consequences of digital skills. This report will contribute to T2.4 by identifying the (f)actors which shape children’s and adolescents’ digital skills and their outcomes, thereby generating a series of hypotheses and priority research questions, as well as the information needed to critically review the ySKILLS conceptual model and prepare integration of theories.

Communication, Dissemination & Exploitation Plan

This document will guide all activities regarding communication, dissemination and exploitation. The plan will be monitored and updated throughout the project (e.g., when new opportunities arise).

Policy brief 1

The first policy brief will bring together all recommendations for policy and practices in a concise way.

Report on (f)actors that explain digital skills acquisition, wellbeing, and the online resilience of children and adolescents

Based on the secondary data analysis of open survey data collected in the past decade on young people’s ICT use, online opportunities, risks, and wellbeing (Task 2.2), a report will be written. The report will give a deeper understanding of the role of social and psychological antecedents, as well as the media access and use variables associated with digital skills acquisition and the consequences of children’s and adolescents’ wellbeing.

Data Management Plan

A Data Management Plan (DMP) will be prepared, describing the data management life cycle for all datasets that will be collected, processed or generated by the research project. Detailed information on the procedures for data collection, storage, protection, retention, and destruction will be included, compliant with national and EU legislation. As the DMP is a dynamic plan, it will be updated each year (M5, M18, M30, M42).
