With the advent of each new technology come predictions of fundamental changes in education. Yet few of these changes have been realized. Digital learning may indeed be the technology that breaks that pattern, but this will only come to pass if educators are empowered to take advantage of the technologies and methodologies available to them.
The EdDiCo project aims at empowering individual educators to
(a) identify the potential technology holds to transform and improve the education they offer,
(b) identify the digital competences they would need to acquire to take advantage of those technologies and associated methodologies;
(c) find the educational resources necessary to acquire those competences.
Educators are the key stakeholders of this project, but its benefits should be felt by all educational stakeholders, most concretely, students, who will benefit from faster adoption of digital pedagogies for their learning.
Educators will be prepared to face challenges of 21st century education thanks to a set of tools which facilitate their self-assessment of own digital education competences and the usage of the European largest guided self-study repository to foster the development of educational digital competences
