Course description

Our pupils' needs are affected by the right to be digitally competent, since only in this manner will they be able to develop fully in a society in which technology is omnipresent.  And in order for the student body to be accompanied in the development of their digital competence, teachers need to have acquired these skills previously. In this course teaching staff can show and develop their digital competence in accordance with the reference framework of educational digital competence selected, and by means of designing materials and activities ready to be directly applied in the classroom.

This training is designed to be given online and it combines:

  • Asynchronous online work, in the company of a team of tutors who will dynamize the course, resolve doubts and give personalized feedback for each of the activities designed.
  • Six synchronous sessions held over video conference, each of them with a duration of one and a half hours, in which the activities to be worked on will be introduced, the course content explored more deeply and any doubts clarified.

In addition to this, it will be possible to adapt the training to the specific needs of participating individuals or institutions in order to contemplate other formats, such as including face-to-face sessions or a mixture of the former with online ones.
