  2. 2. AICA Promotion of ICT culture Services for ICT professionals IT certifications (ECDL, EUCIP) Help to schools & teachers
  3. 3. Two goals for Education Competency-based learning Use of ICTs and web 2.0 for learning Can we promote a competency-based learning through the use of ICT? I will try to provide an affirmative answer to such a question, also on the basis of the experience done in Sloop2desc, a project funded by the EU under the LLP.
  4. 4. Competency-based Education School and universities are invited to shift the focus from to Syllabus Learning results List of content to be deliverd by teachers List of performances the student have to be able to do Teacher centrality Focus on the path School centrality Student centrality Focus on results Society centrality
  5. 5. EQF definition Competence means the proven ability to use knowledge, skills and personal, social and/or methodological abilities , in work or study situations and in professional and personal development.
  6. 6. e-CF definition Competence is a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge, skills and attitudes to achieving observable results.
  7. 7. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities Competence is not a simple addition of knowledge, skills and attitudes. It is the proven ability to use them in a context to achieve results ! Attitude is the “glue”.
  8. 8. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities All three components, knowledge, skills and attitudes must be taken into account. It’s not enough to ensure the acquisition of knowledge and skills, or the development of attitudes; it’s necessary to promote their application in situations to get observable results.
  9. 9. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities Traditional field of activity for schools and universities
  10. 10. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities Technical schools have always promoted them. Sometimes schools and universities consider them as a spin-off effect, almost automatic, of knowledge or as something to be left to the work context.
  11. 11. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities Often they are considered a personal characteristic, determined by genes and/or social conditions, something on which the primary school may take action but not schools or universities
  12. 12. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities To develop competence is required to put students in real context where to co-operate to produce results. Schools and universities often do it in two forms: project works and work experiences in companies.
  13. 13. Pedagogical implications Competence Knowledge Skills Attitudes P ersonal, social and/or methodological abilities Is it possible to work on knowledges, skills and attitudes, and to put students in real context in eLearning?
