Promoting effective digital-age learning: a self-reflection tool for digitally capable schools (SELFIE)

Duration: 1h

The use of digital technologies affects all aspects of the educational value chain (e.g., curricular reform, teaching and learning practices, assessment, initial and continuing teacher professional development) and encompass all school actors (teachers, learners, school leaders).

This workshop will focus on exploring the nature of the digital competence of educational organizations as defined in the DigCompOrg conceptual framework elaborated by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC). The DigCompOrg framework primary purposes are (i) to encourage self-reflection and self-assessment within educational organisations as they progressively deepen their engagement with digital learning and pedagogies, as well as (ii) to enable policy makers to design, implement and evaluate policy interventions for the integration and effective use of digital learning technologies.

During the workshop, participants will also explore and preview the self-evaluation tool for digitally capable schools called “SELFIE”, derived from the DigCompOrg framework and piloted by more than 67,000 school leaders, teachers and students from 650 schools in 16 countries during 2017.

SELFIE, included among the three key priorities defined in the Digital Action Plan adopted on 17th January 2018 by the European Commission (, will be made freely available to all schools in Europe during the second part of 2018.
