The CEFR for Languages has proven to be a powerful tool in learning, in teaching and in materials development. However, it says little about digital competence. In 2013, the European Commission published an important report on digital competence, which plugs that gap. This session presents the most important elements of that report. We will then go on to consider which aspects of digital competence are particularly relevant to English language learners and what difficulties learners are likely to face in attempting to exercise digital competence in a second language. We will explore ways in which we can design task sequences for use in the classroom which develop digital competence and raise students’ understanding of the issues involved.
