DEvelop COmpetences in Digital Era
DECODE has identified a strong demand in education system: the need to supplement instructors training with digital skills, media literacy and digital literacy but also the need to support them with a strategic competence that will enable them to better manage social education relationship with, and through, ICT.
Under this respect, DECODE will contribute to the improvement of the school digitization processes by the understanding of the real organisational and educational processes, useful in providing important sources of information to policy and decision makers and the improvement of teachers’ strategic skills in the use of ICT in education and didactical activities.
To reach these goals DECODE, involving different actors and system (Public and local institution, Digital publishers, Teachers’ association, universities, digital developers, Headmasters etc.), will elaborate guidelines to address managers and teachers to facilitate the integration of learning technologies in teaching practices, especially with regard to the educational dimension and educational methodology.
