MOOC Course: Digitally Competent Teachers for Creative Classroom

The "Digitally Competent Teachers for Creative Digital Students" MOOC will help participants to reflect upon their digital competence for lifelong learning and to get familiar with digital technology for teaching and learning, by exploring different tools and strategies. Teachers will gain knowledge on European frameworks for digital competence and discover how to boost digital competence through European projects such as Code Week, eTwinning, or SELFIE. Teachers will also explore strategies and tools for remote teaching, digital assessment, and classroom management.

The overall objective of the course is for teachers to learn how to effectively integrate technology in the classroom and ultimately reach the students to empower them to be creators of technology, rather than being only consumers.
