. How can policymakers support teachers in developing their technology-enhanced teacher competence? Two-thirds of teachers in the European Union learn about ICT in their own time, and almost all are positive about the impact of ICT on students, according to the Survey in schools: ICT and education (2013). However, despite this readiness, many teachers in Europe still have a lack of competence in using ICT in their teaching and use it only to a small extent in their classrooms.
Key activities: The MENTEP (MENtoring Technology-Enhanced Pedagogy) project addresses the need in Europe for teachers able to innovate using ICT in their classroom and for improved data on teachers’ digital competence. Based on this premise, MENTEP investigates the potential of an online self-assessment tool to empower teachers to progress in their Technology-Enhanced Teaching (TET) competence at their own pace.
