Master in Pedagogical use of ICT

2016/2017 Applications Open

Course presentation

There has been remarkable evolution in terms of the possibilities of being able to use ICTs in formal and nonformal educational contexts. ICTs currently represent a field that is characterised by a growing diversity of the means of use that facilitate innovative learning situations and the development of skills in different areas. The processes of integrating ICTs into curricula presupposes a change in conventional practices, which consequently means that teachers need to have an in-depth knowledge and a critical perspective of the possibilities, limits and implications of the pedagogical use of these technologies. This need to train teachers
has been recognised by Ordinance No. 731/2009, which created the Training and Certification System for ICT Skills for teachers. This Master’s programme aims to promote the expansion and development of skills amongst teachers so as to be able to use ICTs as a pedagogical resource from a perspective of educational research and innovation.
