What Should Digitally Competent Teachers Know?

European CommissionDigital skills in education is an issue of critical importance for Europe. Most people agree that school curricula should include more digital skills training. But in order to increase students’ digital competence, teachers have to be digitally competent as well. The new European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu) is being designed to determine which competences educators need the most to be truly digitally competent in their professional activities. Currently DigCompEdu considers six areas to be of importance, each comprising specific competences. The six areas are: professional engagement, digital resources, digital pedagogy, digital assessment, empowering learners and facilitating learners’ digital competence.

CEPIS has participated in both consultations. Results will be published during summer 2017.
