Course title: D-Paideia



Short Description:

Democratic participation is also increasingly based on the use of digital tools



During the covid19 pandemic most of the educational institutions were obliged to use digital environments for learning. This has supported a lot the digital transformation in education but has also revealed some aspects that we have not taken into consideration in the past. Teachers, not only had to be able to use digital tools but also they had to be aware of the social, emotional and affective aspects of digital technology-based education.

Also, many teachers, even though they could use some tools, they did not have the skills to use them in a pedagogical effective way. The project in order to address this issue is going to update the DigCompEdu qualifications framework in order to take into account these aspects that emerged from the pandemic experience. It is going also to develop a curriculum in order to train teachers and practitioners (of all levels) on these skills.
Furthermore, it is going to develop a method and provide support to educational institutions in order to develop pedagogical digital strategies that will help them to coordinate their efforts, in the framework of a whole school approach and provide education in a digital environment that will be of high quality and inclusive for all learners, especially those from disadvantaged environments that need more the support of their school and their teacher
