The Digital Competence Wheel is a polar diagram that visually illustrates the strength of 16 different digital competences.
Each column represents a competence with a possible score between 0 and 100%. The higher the score, the stronger the competence. The center of the wheel shows the score of your total digital competence.
The purpose of the Digital Competence Wheel is to support the development of digital competences. The Digital Competence Wheel also helps by creating a structure and an overview of what digital competences exist and which ones need to be improved.

The following three digital competences are considered especially important for you to work with if you want to improve your digital skills. Remember that all digital competences are not necessarily equally important in your profession. Therefore, the best choice is a relevant and current digital competence where there is room for improvement.

Examples of exercises on the recommended competences
Ability and interest in making use of, expressing opinions or otherwise contributing actively and making yourself visible in digital environments
I can participate in an online professional or social network and share my opinion and knowledge on a topic with others.
I can make a video, article or podcast and share it on a relevant forum.
I can ask good friends and colleagues for feedback on what I share. Is it perceived by others as it was intended? For example, whether it is perceived humorous, ironic, well-documented, emotional, convincing or otherwise.
I can evaluate the group and try to identify humor, knowledge, language and arguments. It can create greater empathy and understanding for the people I am in dialogue with.
When I need feedback or can't find an answer to a question, I can ask in a serious online forum that debates such topics.
I can participate more actively on our intranet, stay up to date and comment so that the others have an experience of being seen and heard.
Ability to identify and protect sensitive data and understand related risks
I can create a personal set of rules for creating new passwords that are safe but at the same time easy for me to remember.
I can always check that the line is encrypted before I submit sensitive information. For example, check that the address is https (not http).
I can learn how to add password protection to sensitive documents when I email them to others.
I can familiarise myself with the data supervision requirements for digital storage with regards to the personal information that I store.
I can, as a private individual, back up relevant data and store it in a safe place.
Ability to care for both physical and mental health in an everyday life surrounded by technology and media
I can seek knowledge of ergonomic settings on the office chair and desk, the lighting, the location of the monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.
I can make sure to regularly change the working position when I work. For example, stand up often.
I can familiarise myself with how the most ergonomic workstation can be realised in our office with regards to budget and space.
I can reduce the use of the mouse by knowing and applying the most relevant shortcut keys.
I can consider how, in practice, I can establish a sensible and balanced use of media.
I can consider how we can get a healthy online culture in our organisation.
The diagram below reflects your digital skills in relation to the normality. The normal range shows how respondents “usually” score.
Keep an eye on whether some competences stand out significantly. If a competence scores higher than the normality, then this competence is extraordinarily good, while a competence that is below the normality is relatively weak.
A score of 0% means that the competence is equal to the normality, while a positive score means that the competence is higher then the normality.
The interesting thing about benchmarking is therefore no longer the score of competence, but how the competence scores relative to others.
A total score of 72% puts you in the category digital candidate.
The digital candidate can debate and ask questions about digital concepts and can independently experiment with new technologies. They analyse and solve problems by logical deduction - e.g. they can break down a digital concept into sub-elements and work through it step by step.
