The DECODE project. An intervention research path for the school and with the school


In the new scenery, digital skills are essential for the promotion of digital literacy, to facilitate and allow technological and social innovation, to increase digital inclusion and to respond to the needs of a society in constant and constant change. In this scenario, the research and action project, Decode "DEvelop COmpetences in Digital Era", develops, intending to enhance and share the best practices in the educational field. The project moves in the awareness that the new information and communication technologies play an increasingly important role in the economic scenario and Europe invites the institutions to invest in integrating ICT into teaching practices and encouraging the enhancement of teachers' skills in using these technologies for teaching purposes. The main purpose of DECODE was to contribute, through a research-action intervention, to the improvement and enhancement of digital skills for teaching used by teachers. The project lasted about three years and involved various target groups in its activities. Five main actions carried out to achieve the goals set by the course, the so-called "Intellectual Output" (IO). For each, "I" has been prepared and disseminated through an "open access" policy, a dissemination report, based on the rules of European planning. The research ended with a meta-evaluation of the path that led to reviewing the various stages of the path and all the intermediate national reports, giving the final report entitled "Digital Culture for Educational Organizations. Guidelines for Teachers and Education Agencies ", published by Eurilink University Press (2020).
