My framework on Internet skills used in research and policy evaluations:
Book: Digital Skills, unlocking the information society
This book systematically discusses the skills or literacies needed in the use of digital media (see framework above), primarily computers and the Internet. It uses conceptual analysis and empirical observations to show what digital skills are, how they are distributed, how skill inequalities develop, and how these inequalities can be remedied by designers, educators, policymakers, and different types of Internet users.
