We live in a digital world. The phenomenon of digitalization makes its impact felt in all areas of life; It changes the way we do business and our habits. In the digital world, it has become a necessity for individuals to know how to access accurate information, how to process, evaluate and use information in a meaningful way, and how to manage information.

In parallel with the rapid development of digital technologies on a European scale, the European Digital Competence framework (DigComp), which was prepared to better understand the importance of competence in the digital field, to identify and develop the digital competences of citizens, consists of five main digital competence areas. The first of these key competence areas is “Information and Data Literacy”.

“Information and Data Literacy” consists of 3 sub-digital competencies:

1.1 Browsing, searching and filtering data, information and digital content

1.2 Evaluation of data, information and digital content

1.3 Data, information and digital content management

1.1 Scanning, searching and filtering data, information and digital content

Within the scope of this digital competence, citizens can express their information needs, search for data, information and content in digital environments, access and navigate between digital media. In addition, individuals can create and update their own personal search strategies.

1.2 Evaluation of data, information and digital content

Critical evaluation of the information obtained in online environments full of unlimited content is an important part of information and data literacy. In order to access accurate and reliable information, individuals need to approach the obtained information with a critical and skeptical approach in terms of source and content. The resulting digital content should be analyzed, compared and critically interpreted for relevance  and reliability.

“Measuring the Quality of Information”

Digital content, documents, audio and text files, images, graphics, animations, videos, etc. refers to content used for different purposes in various formats. Digital content management, on the other hand, describes the organization and storage of existing information and data in different media and ways.Individuals try to obtain information that creates value by processing the structured information.
