The main objective of this research was to describe the unfolded and manifest digital identity of Higher Education students in Chile. Among the main results, it was observed that students show a low awareness of declared and calculated identity, and a medium awareness of their created identity. This leads us to conclude that Chilean university students are aware of the frequency of their activity, but not of its impact, which places them in an initial identity development.
The results suggest that university students have poor digital skills and competences, which allow them to properly manage both digital identity and PLE. It is therefore imperative to move towards comprehensive, solid and coherent training in digital skills; which will ultimately be what future professionals will require when they enter a highly digitized working world
