Digital competences enable educators to seize the potential of digital technologies. Thus, they are fundamental for innovative education. However, even if someone is technically savvy, they are not necessarily a digitally competent educator. In fact, the digital competences of general users are not specific for teaching.
This course is designed to help educators of all levels to boost the digital competences specific for a teacher’s professional life. Participants will learn how to effectively integrate technology in the classroom and how to empower students to develop their digital competence.
The course will explain the DigCompEdu framework, that is, the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators. The framework describes 22 professional digital competences organized in 6 areas, with 6 proficiency levels.
As a participant, you will be guided to reflect upon your digital competences through comprehensive self-assessment tools. You will also discover different tools and strategies for teaching with digital technology. Besides, you will learn to apply digital assessment strategies and tools to facilitate feedback and analyze your students’ progress.
By the end of the course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of digital competences for educators. You will be able to design a personal learning path for the professional development of your digital competences. You will also be able to identify, modify, and create suitable digital resources and assessments that are relevant to your objectives. By being a digitally competent teacher, you will enable your students to develop their digital skills, too.
No prior technological skill is required for taking this course. The DigCompEdu framework focuses on non-technical skills and details on how to use technology to enhance and innovate education of different levels.
