WHAT will be done


‘- Creation of a computer classroom to provide training on free software and free tools for education.

– The project is aligned with the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu), which responds to the growing awareness in many European Member States that educators need a set of digital competences specific to their profession, in order to be able to harness the potential of digital technologies to improve and innovate in education.
– Integration in the “Digital Competence Framework for Undergraduate Students”.
