Digital Competence in Education

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

6-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

Digital competence is the set of knowledge, skills and attitudes that should be acquired by all people in order to ensure critical and creative use of ICT and digital media for the purpose of achieving goals related to work, learning and/or leisure. The European Commission’s European Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigCompEdu), aims to promote digital competence (DC) and innovation in education.

 It is essential that teachers to make learning and teaching effective should become familiar with the digital competence and develop a set of DC in order to take advantage of the potential of digital technologies. This action aims to contribute to developing the DC of teachers and their ability to implement innovative teaching and learning strategies. The ambition is to create favorable conditions for educational practices that promote the development of students’ digital skills.
