Teacher Education in Digital & Media Literacy – Frameworks and strategies at National and European level

When starting to discuss teacher education in digital and media literacy, one of the challenges that quickly emerges is how to place teacher education and training in this area within frameworks and models that already exist to provide a mechanism for viewing teacher education and training in general. Education in this area combines a mix of skills and competences along with knowledge acquisition in a variety of different topics. On top of this there is also a need to address attitudes as part of the process, making digital and media literacy acquisition difficult to even categorise, and even more so, to evaluate.

During this webinar we will be discussing European Frameworks and Models like DigComp, DigCompEdu and SELFIEforTEACHERS as well as other relevant cross-border frameworks like RFCDC from the Council of Europe and TPACK. We also plan to explore the role and suitability of national frameworks and models like OPEKA (Finland) and Digital Mirror (Estonia) to see how best Digital and Media Literacy might be incorporated.
