Train the Trainers

Presentation of PIX, an online public service which aims to assess, develop and certify digital skills

The PIX platform is free and accessible to all. It allows the assessment, development and certification of the 16 skills listed in the European reference framework DigiComp.

These are cross-cutting digital skills that range from information research to security, including office software, mastery of social networks, mastery of collaborative tools or uses related to hardware, for example.

As far as the education world is concerned, the platform is deployed in all middle and high schools and a certification is offered to students at the end of the 9th and 12th grades.

The platform is currently being internationalized.

Summary of the approach of day 3:

  • A digital training course leading to certification based on the European DigiComp reference framework.
  • An example of an online academic training course
  • Peer training

Areas of reflection arising from the discussions:

  • Different ways to certify digital skills
  • Need to include the use of digital technology in the school project in order to mobilize a maximum number of teachers and young people
  • Heterogeneous training of teachers often conditioned by motivation
  • How to motivate reluctant teachers?
  • Institutional training, self-training and peer training.

Themes identified:

  • Training needs accelerated by the health crisis
  • DigiComp reference framework
  • Teacher motivation: a decisive factor in the use of digital technology

Assessment:

This 3rd and last day gets to the heart of the Citizen 2.1 project, namely how to better train trainers in their use of digital tools so that they can in turn better prepare their students for the demands of a world that is becoming more and more digital.

A big thank you to everyone!
