The project

The Digi Teachers Working Online project helps VET teaching staff improve their digital skills and competences with a strong link to pedagogy. Teachers will gain new tools, ideas and practices to implement online education, support their studentsdigital skills and network with European colleagues engaged in special education 

Where should you start?

Start to explore the webpage by reading about the training module. Syllabus tells about the content of the training module. The training module is divided into three parts: Digital Resources, Teaching and Learning and Empowering Learners. For each theme there is a toolkit that gives practical examples of how to use digital tools in teaching.

After you have studied the training module, you can evaluate your competence with the evaluation tasks. Any organisation can utilise the material by turning the evaluation tasks into open badges.

We have utilised ChatGPT when masterminding the content of the training module. Copilot has made some of the pictures for us.

Why should you use digital pedagogics in special education in VET?

Equity; everyone has a right to learn digital skills.

Digital skills are the civic skills of today and the future.
