Digital and ICT-based competencies for all students
Didactical useful integration of digital media for all subjects
Digital competencies for all
Digital media is changing our world to an extent that last took place during the invention of printing. Up-to-date educational and working processes are not thinkable without using digital technologies - digital competencies are therefore essential to our whole society.
Primary goal of the initiative eEducation Austria of the Federal Ministry of Education is to advance digital and ICT-based competencies throughout all schools in Austria - starting from Primary schools to Upper Secondary - digital education for all!
eEducation Austria member.schools
All schools which were previously involved in one of the elearning-networks in Austria (depending on the type of school) are given a head start as an eEducation.expert.school. These schools are asked to transfer their know-how to new schools that have just started on the way towards their organisational development of digital competencies.
The entry level into the network is the member status. For this only a commitment of school administration is necessary. The school has to have an interest in conveying digital and informatical competences and start a school development process. They are supported by one or more expert schools.
Development of digital concept for the school
Development of a digital eEducation school concept together with an expert.school.
