Outputs

The consortium defined operational objectives to be achieved:

  • To provide a pragmatic insight regarding the integration of digital creativity in EU ITE contexts, by designing a framework of digital creative teaching competences (Output 1) and producing guidelines & policy recommendations for enhancing digital creativity in teacher education (Output 4);
  • To design, implement and validate a training model for enhancing digital creativity in EU Teacher Education, including a curriculum, a MOOC and a series of OER (Output 2);
  • To integrate pedagogical scenarios related to digital creativity in an innovative training tool based on a serious game and gamification elements (Output 3);
  • To intertwine ITE providers and EdTech research centres & companies in a community of practice;
  • To disseminate and exploit the outputs at institutional, national and EU levels by making them freely and easily available to policy makers, practitioners, researchers and educational stakeholders.

The project outputs will be implemented in 3 higher educational systems (i.e. Italy, Greece and Spain), learning cultures and socio-economic situations. During the projeThis transnational dimension will allow for ensuring that outputs are usable in different EU backgrounds. The project aims for a tangible and sustainable impact on the participating ITE institutions and systems.

Publications

The first output of the project will be the Framework of Digital Creative Teaching Competences. The material aims to define the key-components of competences needed by teacher educators for effectively integrating digital creativity in teaching contexts, as well as to provide and validate a EU reference framework for developing and evaluating digital creative teaching competences. The framework of competences targets teacher educators, educational policy makers, as well as EdTech research centres and companies, and indirectly pre-service / in-service teachers.

Practical tools

Given the progress of the Framework of Digital Creative Teaching Competences, the next steps in the process of creating a project MOOC and a Serious Game have been taking place. The national team are cooperating and adjusting the work done for the national contexts.

A MOOC platform

Case studies

This section will outline the current situation on the integration of digital creativity in ITE in the DoCENT project countries, i.e. Greece, Italy and Spain. 

More information to follow soon.

DoCENT

DoCENT intends to develop innovative tools for integrating digital creativity into EU Teacher Education. The project will focus on developing, implementing, validating and disseminating an innovative model to guide teacher educators in applying digital creative teaching practices.
