Digital Identity Development for Adolescent Girls



In the context of large-scale digitalization of the world educational environment, an urgent(acute) scientific and practical task is to find ways to organize the educational process aimed at the formation of key Digital Competencies. The years that have passed since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic have shown that without digital competence, a modern person cannot study, work and communicate well. Digital literacy, with which Digital Competence begins, is not a skill spontaneously acquired by a person in the era of digitalization. This is a system of knowledge, abilities, skills, attitudes that are necessary for life in a digital society. The formation of such a system, its development, should be realized and controlled. Only in this case can we say that the main goal of digitalization is to improve the quality of human life and it becomes achievable. The authors of various concepts of digital literacy and Digital Competence agree on one thing: only understanding how the digital reality works can teach a person to control information noise and make interaction with digital technologies as a source of development, not stress.
