Digital education (EU DigComp) enables teachers to deal with all teaching formats, methods and practices, especially the electronic teaching, learning, collaboration, correspondence and communication.

Covid19 pandemic proved once again that digital competences is not a luxury anymore, but vital skills required to see the future in a positive manner.
This course is addressed to participants of any specialization, any teacher who would like to enrich their digital competences, get certified with at least one ECCC DigComp certificate and become more effective and more productive at work.

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.

It will include outdoor activities as well as field studies. There will be visits to beautiful landscapes on Troodos mountain as well as a day trip to cape Akrotiri and the beautiful beaches of Limassol.
