In 2016 the DITL project methodology was adopted by Working Group 1 Digital literacy in homes and communities of the COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) programme The Digital Literacy and Multimodal Practices of Young Children

An important innovation in this iteration of the project is the addition of inventories to detail the digital technologies the children have in the home, those that they access, and their skills.

The project’s summary report can be found here.
