16 SES 07 B, Teacher’s Skills for the School of the Future
For more than one year experts in education have debated and listened to opinions about a set of topics related to the school of the future. The main goals of the “Teacher’s Skills for the School of the Future” project were as follows:
· to evaluate the profile of teaching skills for the future;
· to define the key components of teacher’s initial skills profile;
· to design complementary professional training courses (Specialization, Post-graduate or Master).
The Teacher’s Skills for the School of the Future project focused around a monthly webinar in an e-round table format using web conferences and virtual environment tools. The sessions were run in English, Portuguese and Spanish to reach a broader community.
Our project team compiled and organized all the information generated in the sessions. The results of these sessions and debates are a large amount of documentation, mainly in the form of video recordings available on demand on the project’s website.
The project has been a very important forum for debate and reflection. The added value of these results is available for all the academic community, and was framed conceptually/theoretically in relation to the professional development in the field of the educational use of ICT.
The expert and researcher participants are from several European countries, from North, Central and South America, Canada and the US. Some of the participants are the following:
