Digital Pedagogy: the experience of Italian future teachers in the European project ITELab


Teachers’ digital competence is one of the key elements for tackling the many and new challenges found in today schools. For this reason, it is crucial to start a reflection on the concept of Digital Pedagogy, an approach that integrates technological competencies with a profound pedagogical knowledge which is aware of the contemporary complexities and it is also projected towards the future. The European project ITELab offered new ways of training following this direction to the future teachers of 4 European countries, one of which was Italy. This paper describes the experience of the Italian sample involved in the experimentation, made of students coming from the Primary Education course of University of Perugia.
