A workshop on "Teacher education and ICT", organised by Corinne Hermant (expert at the European Commission in charge of the Minerva-Socrates action), invites to reflect on the definition of basic ICT competencies and how it is possible to enhance learners' ability to learn.
Several issues could be considered:
1. Learning methods
2. Cultural transformation processes and their impact
3. Networking - how to combine virtual and "real" processes?
4. How should knowledge be defined?
5. The teacher's role now and in the future
6. Which benchmarks could be used to measure school leaders' and teachers' ICT education and ICT competencies?
7. How was it possible to avoid "marginalisation" of disadvantaged groups?
The workshop concluded that favourable training conditions are very much related to a broader organisational framework. Such framework includes - inter alia - either direct or indirect incentives for teachers to attend courses, or schemes that allow teaching-time credits to teachers, or their temporary replacement while absent for training. The detailed organisation of training is also quite important.
