This paper presents the results of a scoping exercise on children's digital literacy that has been undertaken with the following objectives:

  • to understand the current digital literacy policy and practice landscape;
  • to highlight existing competence frameworks and how they can be adapted to UNICEF’s needs;
  • to analyse the needs and efforts of UNICEF country offices; and
  • to reflect on policy and programme recommendations, including a definition of digital literacy for UNICEF.
