DIGITAL KIDS ASIA-PACIFIC : INSIGHTS INTO THE DIGITAL LIVES OF CHILDREN : National Report Lao PDR
The main objective of the research project is to provide evidence-based information regarding the state of digital citizenship among 15 year-old students in Lao PDR. The five (5) competency domains based on an initial study by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2019 are used as bases of the study. These domains include: digital literacy, digital safety and resilience, digital participation and agency, digital emotional intelligence, and digital creativity and innovation. For the Lao PDR context, the main objectives of the research are to determine the following: 1) Is the reliability and validity of DKAP appropriate for Lao students?; 2) How may we describe the digital citizenship among 15-year old Lao students?; 3) Are there differences in the Lao students’ digital citizenship competence due to gender?; and, 4) Are there individual and contextual characteristics that predict Lao students’ digital citizenship competency?
