MapUs Frameworks

The MapUs software is more than a survey tool. We always measure competences based on a survey framework. The framework contains everything, from the specific questions you want to ask and the competences, to the taxonomy and a library full of resources to get you started. All the questions in the framework are linked to the competences that you and your company want to measure. 

Most organizations start off with one of our MapUs frameworks implemented on their platform, which they then customize to make the framework more relevant for their exact organization.

Learn more about the MapUs frameworks below.

The Digital Competence Wheel - the original MapUs framework

A complete plug and play solution to kick off any digital journey

The digital Competence Wheel

The Digital Competence Wheel is our tried and tested original MapUs framework, designed to give users a broad assessment of their digital competence levels, as well as concrete inspiration on how to grow.

This framework is theoretically based on a major European research project called DigComp, derived from the European Parliament’s inclusion of digital competence as one of the eight core competences for lifelong learning. DigComp 2.0, the EU framework for developing and measuring digital competence, has therefore been a big inspiration in the creation of our MapUs framework, The Digital Competence Wheel. The Digital Competence Wheel provides a thorough understanding of, and insights into, what digital competences are important to hold in the 21st century, and offer concrete tools to how these competences can be elevated and improved.

Based on DigComp 2.0 and feedback from the first users of our software, we built and created the Digital Competence Wheel - an original MapUs framework that organizations could use to measure their digital competence levels as well as improve on them. Thereby, the Digital Competence Wheel is an all-around competency framework that organizations can use to get valuable insights into their digital strengths and weaknesses and digitization efforts.

With its accessible approach to digital concepts, The Digital Competence Wheel is where most of our customers and partners begin their digital journey. Many use the framework as a foundation they can build upon to create the perfect competence model for their project and organizational reality.

Check out The Digital Competence Wheel framework here.

The Digital Competence Wheel is available in several languages. If you would like to translate the framework into a new language, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Would you like to customize the framework for your exact organization?
With a MapUs subscription you can customize everything from the questions, competences, taxonomy and resources in the framework, to the colors and theme on your own MapUs platform.

DigComp

An exact implementation of the EU framework DigComp

Digcomp

The DigComp framework is theoretically based on the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens, DigComp, publication - the EU framework for developing and measuring digital competence.

Opposite to the framework The Digital Competence Wheel, the content in the DigComp framework is not modified or further developed by the MapUs team. It is an exact implementation of the EU framework DigComp.

Use this MapUs framework as a starting point for your digital journey, if you wish for a platform with an exact implementation of the DigComp framework.

FRAMEWORKS FOR EDUCATION

Frameworks to heighten the digital capabilities of educators and students

Digital Compentences for Educators

The teaching professions face rapidly changing digital demands, and therefore educators need an increasingly broad set of digital competences.

We have two MapUs frameworks to support educators in their digital capabilities: 

DigCompEdu is a framework theoretically based on the EU framework Digital Competence Framework for Educators, which is a scientifically founded framework that embodies what it means for educators to be digitally competent. The framework offers a reference frame to support the development and improvement of digital competences specific to educators across all levels of education. 

The DigCompEdu framework is aimed towards, and relevant for, educators at all levels of education - from the education of younger pupils, to higher and adult education. The framework allows educators to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses in using digital technologies in their teaching. With 6 competence areas that cover both professional, pedagogical and educational competences, the focus of the tool is to support and encourage teachers in using digital tools to enhance and innovate education.

Check out the DigCompEDU framework here.

Our other framework targeted towards educators, is Det Digitale Kompetencehjul for Undervisere (The Digital Competence Wheel for Educators). We have developed this tool in collaboration with Danish educational institutions. The framework is a rework of the original MapUs framework, The Digital Competence Wheel, and the purpose is to give educators a wide, accessible overview of their competences. 

Currently, this framework is only available in Danish. But, if you are interested in translating it into another language, please do not hesitate to contact us and together we will make it happen. 

Check out the framework here.

Would you like to customize one of the frameworks targeted towards educators for your exact institution?
With a MapUs subscription you can customize everything from the questions, competences, taxonomy and resources in the framework, to the colors and theme on your own MapUs platform.

Digital study competences for students

Being a competent student today requires a specific digital skill set. You need to know how to find the right information online for assignments, create good presentations and practice critical evaluation when reviewing source material, just to mention a few.

That is why we have created the Digital Study Competences (Digitale Studiekompetencer) framework. This framework is theoretically based on the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens, DigComp - the EU framework for developing and measuring digital competences. Furthermore, the framework is developed in cooperation between MapUs and six Danish high schools.

Have your students complete The Digital Study Competences framework and become more aware of how they can become better digital students. This framework is aimed at students aged 16 and above.

Check out the framework in English here, and Danish here.

If you have younger students aged 12-15, we've also developed The Digital Competence Wheel for Pupils. This framework is developed by MapUs in cooperation with Gyldendal, the biggest publisher in Denmark, and six Danish primary schools. The framework supports education within the areas digital communication, production, information, and security, which heightens digital literacy and wellbeing in schools.

Currently, this framework is only available in Danish. But, if you are interested in translating it into another language, please do not hesitate to contact us and together we will make it happen.

Would you like to customize one of the frameworks targeted towards students for your exact institution?
With a MapUs subscription you can customize everything from the questions, competences, taxonomy and resources in the framework, to the colors and theme on your own MapUs platform.

Need something else?

Create your own framework

Need something else? Maybe a framework aimed towards a specific target group? Or a framework that focuses on something else than digital competences?

One of the MapUs softwares greatest assets is its versatility. Our team’s expertise is in digital literacy and competences, but our software has a much greater potential, and it can be useful in a wide range of projects

Therefore, if you need a (competency) mapping tool, MapUs might just be the right tool for you - even though you do not focus on digital competences. You can essentially build whatever competence framework is relevant to you, and MapUs can provide the features to make it useful, comprehensive, and engaging. 

Build up a framework from scratch - or let us cooperate on developing a brand new framework together.

Contact us, and we will figure out the best solution.

Get Inspired

Curious to learn how other customers and partners have used the MapUs software and frameworks? 

In collaboration with our partners, we've developed frameworks that cover a wide range of digital areas of life. These are currently only available in Danish, but take a look at them to get inspired:

  • Digital Competencies of the Future: A framework that maps digital competencies relevant to the work in local government.
  • Digital Start: Together with the Danish Agency for Digitisation we developed a framework to encourage highschoolers to use digital public services
  • Strong on the Internet: This framework, created in collaboration with multiple libraries, is aimed at strengthening the digital competencies of 13-14 year-olds.
