What are the Digital Competences Educators really need?

What are the Digital Competences Educators really need? | eLanguages | Scoop.it
Digital Competence has become a hot topic, especially for school education. While schools are still struggling with the digital infrastructure, students are already using digital technologies widely, for life and leisure, but also to support their learning - whether or not this is foreseen in curricula. Students' life is a digital life.

Schools, teachers and education ministries are aware of this and are increasingly focusing on developing curricula, guidelines or materials to ensure that students use technology creatively and critically, effectively, meaningfully and responsibly.

As programmes focusing on students' digital competence are taking off, the call for equipping teachers – or more generally: educators at all levels – with digital skills is getting louder. But what are the digital competences educators need to have? Are we talking about dealing with digital devices or compiling digital learning resources? Are we talking about technical skills or pedagogical competences? What is it that makes an educator – as educator – digitally competent?

The European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu) intends to answer these questions. And its answer is easy: Yes, educators do need to have a good level of overall digital competence (as captured for example in the 'DigComp' general Digital Competence Framework for Citizens), because they are citizens in a digital age and role models for the next generation. However, to be digitally competent educators, they need a specific set of competences that focuses on their professional activities.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 15, 10:47 AM
I did several things in using rubrics. First, I spent a considerable amount of time with the various curicula (9 to 11 core subjects). I read and considered what students were being asked to learn. I interpreted and prepared rubrics through that lens. Second, I edited each time I used a rubric. I discovered new insights. Third, I went over the rubrics with students which informed point 2. This provided them with insights as they began an activity and they were comfortable asking questions and making observations along the way.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 27, 1:19 PM
I reviewed and edited my rubrics each time I used them. I sat with the program of studies while doing that. I included students in the process, going over the rubrics and asking them what they understood about them and their learning.
