The project constitutes the continuation and further development of the integrated training for the utilisation and application of Digital Technologies in the teaching practice, which was implemented during the previous years and is widely known as the “B-Level ICT Teacher Training”.
It is implemented by the Computer Technology Institute and Press (CTI) – “Diophantus” (in particular by the Directorate of Training and Certification (DiTC) of CTI) acting as the beneficiary, in collaboration with the Institute of Educational Policy (IEP), within the Operational Program “Human Resources Development, Education and Lifelong Learning”, NSRF (2014-2020), co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund) and the Greek State.
The Project is titled “In-service Training of Teachers in the utilisation and application of Digital Technologies in the teaching practice” (B-Level ICT Teacher Training) and it accommodates:

  • the further development and update of the “B-Level ICT Teacher Training”, i.e.:
    • the enhancement and update of training methodologies and training content, taking into account modern pedagogical and technological developments, as well as the results and experience gained from the implementation of previous relative projects
    • the extension of teacher training to address all teacher specialties and disciplines of primary and secondary education, which means: the development of infrastructure and human resources (e.g. development of educational content and training material, development of teacher training support systems, training of new teacher trainers / educators, etc.) and consequently, the increase in potential trainees, and
    • the development and implementation of the teacher training in two levels, as follows:
      a. “Introductory training for the utilization of ICT in school” (B1-Level ICT teacher training) and
      b. “Advanced training for the utilization and application of ICT in the teaching practice” (B2-Level ICT teacher training),
      The combination of these two levels equals to the acquisition of knowledge and skills corresponding to the integrated training for the utilization and application of ICT in the teaching process (B-level ICT teacher training).
  • the training of 300 new B-Level ICT teacher trainers / educators, who will be trained and certified to complement and enrich the existing Registry of B-Level ICT Teacher Trainers (greater geographical coverage, new disciplines) and, following appropriate certification processes, will undertake teacher training along with the existing B-level ICT teacher trainers,
  • the training of 30,000 teachers in B1-Level ICT knowledge and skills,
  • the training of 5,000 teachers in B2-Level ICT knowledge and skills,
  • the certification of the above teachers in the corresponding knowledge and skills in ICT and additionally, teacher certification processes in Basic ICT skills (A-Level ICT skills), which is a prerequisite for the participation of the teachers in B1-Level ICT teacher training,
  • the development and adaptation of infrastructure, scientific and technological tools, large-scale training and certification support systems and mechanisms,
  • the implementation of complementary horizontal actions to support the project actions, such as dissemination and publicity, procurement of equipment, reproduction of educational material etc.

For the implementation of the above, the infrastructure, the systems and scientific tools developed in the previous, relevant project (e.g. the Integrated Information System for Data Management of Teacher Training and Certification - MIS, Systems and Applications for the support of the Certification process, the Library – Educational Activities Repository “Iphigeneia” (http://ifigeneia.cti.gr), curriculum content and educational material) are being upgraded, enriched – expanded and adapted to meet the new requirements.
In addition, previous Registries are being used and updated, and in particular the:

  • Teacher Trainers Registry (appropriately trained for each type of offered training)
  • Teacher Training Support Centres (TTSCs) Registry
  • Certification Centre Registry
