Is it all about frequency? Students’ digital competence and tablet use

Being digitally competent requires appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes towards the use of digital technologies for different aspects of today’s society. The role education plays in equipping students with such competence is increas-ingly important, but despite the growing number of studies on the topic, little is known about the impact the use of digital technologies has on students’ digital competence. This paper presents and discusses findings regarding the impact of tablet use on the development of lower secondary students’ digital competence. A retrospective evaluation was made resorting to a questionnaire applied to students from two schools. Findings suggest that the frequency of tablet use seems to ex-plain students’ perceptions of their digital competence development.
