It is important for modern educational reforms to meet this need through a system of professional development, taking into account the need for lifelong learning. Acquaintance with the achievements of the European community, with the Digital Competence Framework for Citizens will contribute to a holistic vision of this category and progress towards the formation of this important key human capacity. Descriptors of learning outcomes in the field of digital competence are described. Prospects for further research are identified, which are the use of the Digital Competence Framework for citizens in the field of educational policy and in practice in educational institutions.
