2.2 Teachers’ Digital Competence
This tool offers teachers in schools of all levels the possibility to identify their strengths and areas for improvement with respect to the use of digital technologies for teaching. It is a self-assessment questionnaire consisting of 22 questions that provides detailed feedback and useful suggestions, as well as indications to identify the main steps in the path of personal development towards innovative didactics.
DigCompEdu addresses educators at all levels of education, from pre-primary to vocational, higher and adult education. The focus of the framework is to support and encourage teachers in using digital tools to enhance and innovate education.
This self-assessment tool is based on the European Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigCompEdu).
To encourage educators to use the DigCompEdu framework as a tool for their professional development, it was decided to couple CEFR levels with motivating role descriptors, ranging from Newcomer (A1) to Pioneer (C2).
These descriptors are intended motivate educators at all levels to positively appreciate their achievements and to look forward to expanding them further.
