Indonesia’s Digital Literacy Index Rises

According to a survey conducted by the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) and a research agency, the Digital Literacy Index in 2022 grew by 0.05 points, from 3.49 to 3.54. Director General of Informatics Applications Semuel A. Pangerapan noted that the 2022 Digital Literacy Index study revealed the improvement was particularly pronounced in digital culture and digital ethics.

The outcomes of Indonesia’s digital literacy mapping provide an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of digital skills and knowledge levels and an insight into the country’s situations and potential. Semuel said the digital security component necessitates all stakeholders’ attention and collaborative efforts.

“Based on the 2022 Kominfo Digital Literacy Index survey results, there is an increase of roughly zero point zero five points. “From 3.49 to 3.54 aggregate figures,” he revealed at the Launching of Indonesia’s Digital Literacy Status 2002, which took place in Central Jakarta.

There has been a growth in the aspects of digital culture and digital ethics in general. Based on the survey performed last year, Indonesia’s digital culture is at 3.48 points, digital skills are still about 3.52 points, and digital ethics increased by 3.68 points. Eventually, the safety index (safety) still requires attention due to its low level. With a score of 3.12, Indonesians are still readily duped by scams and bogus news from those with bad intentions.

The Ministry of Communication and Information has conducted three National Digital Literacy Index surveys since 2020. The study was designed to assess the state of digital literacy.

“Our assessments’ results are divided by the area and how there are variances in various locations. In Jogja, for comparison, the average level of digital literacy is 3.64. Similarly, the figure is the same in West Kalimantan. East Kalimantan is third, and West Papua is fourth, with a score of 3.62. Furthermore, Central Java ranks fifth with a digital literacy level of 3.61 persons,” he elaborated.

The survey results also demonstrate attempts to promote digital literacy in each province, which is required so that digital literacy programmes are on target. In addition, this measurement aims to determine Indonesian society’s awareness of digital literacy so that the ministry may create maps of where digital literacy should be implemented more broadly.

Digital literacy is classified into three categories: education, government (army/TNI and police/Polri), and the general public. It is 3.70 in the Education category. The government segment is 3.74, whereas the public component is 3.50.

People have been victims of fraud and misinformation due to a lack of digital literacy. Therefore, governments worldwide focus on developing digital literacy in their countries. Cybercriminals, such as online scams, fake news, and financial crime, are significant concerns in Thailand. Taking note of the situation, the government has launched the Pao Tang application, which provides warnings about scams and fake news involving financial fraud or financial crime to help people to keep up with the current situation and manage the new complexity that has caused significant damage.

The technology will connect data from the Anti-Fake News Centre (AFNC) databases at the Ministry of Digital Affairs to service providers. Furthermore, the wallet software sends warnings regarding financial fraud and erroneous information in various formats. The app, which has over 40 million users, is intended to aid in combating the problem by raising awareness of ongoing internet scams and fake news. As a result, people are better positioned to prevent themselves from becoming victims while minimising overall losses.
