Digital competence on the political agenda : A discourse analysis (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Master’s thesis is to study why the concept of digital competence previously has been frequently addressed in Swedish politics, and to examine possible connections to the related concepts information literacy and media and information literacy (MIL). These inquiries have been studied using Carol Lee Bacchi’s methodological approach to policy analysis to, with basis in Foucaldian post-structuralist discourse analysis, study representations of the problem present in a public investigation, presented by the Digitization Committee regarding digital competence (SOU 2015:28). In order to perform a discourse analysis according to Bacchi’s methodology, elements from both Foucault’s archeology and genealogy have been used to examine the discursive formations of digital competence. Apart from the public investigation issued by the Digitization Committee, other relevant documents have been studied. The Media public investigation (SOU2015:94), the Government’s Digitization Strategy (N2017/03643/D) and the National IT Strategy for the Swedish School System (U2017/04119/S) have been examined, in search for competing discourses regarding digital competence. The results of the study show that digital competence has been frequently issued in Swedish politics in regard to its part of hegemony discourse and therefore to its prominent position in the economics and technology discourse. Connections to the related concepts information literacy and media and information literacy are identified in their part of a competing humanistic and sociological discourse, and their power and potential to rephrase hegemony discourse, regarding the concept of digital competence.
