Teachers in the Digital Age


Published on

Following the needs of today’s society and the development and needs of learners, the project E-competent teacher within E-Education defines and describes the digital competencies or e-competencies that represent the basic level of digital literacy. They refer to teachers, pre-school teachers, ICT co-ordinators, school principals and deputy school principals. Our seminars mostly focus on the first level of digital literacy since they support the development of digital competencies. Partly, the second level is also included because the blended learning seminars enable participants to put into practice the knowledge they gain on various strategies, approaches, content and materials. By doing so, they apply the acquired competencies to their professional field. The results of the evaluation we have already done show that since 2009 there were 36.574 participations at the seminars (20.296 participants out of 30.000 teachers in Slovenia), 14.920 workshops with 39.073 participations, more than 70% of principals attended 1 or more leadership courses 99,3% schools were participating in the project, 285 members of development teams and 760 trained collaborators were involved in the project.
