This competence describes the ability to use digital tools effectively and specifically to research digital resources such as video and audio files. This is about finding efficiently relevant information to enrich the learning process.

In today's digital era there is a wealth of digital resources that could be used for teaching. The targeted use of search engines and school-internal databases facilitates access to high-quality materials.
