Citizen 2.1: Preparing teachers for the global evolution of education 

The Institute for Contemporary Education, one of the institutions within the LINKgroup, participates in the Citizen 2.1 project aimed at sharing best practices in the field of educational competency development related to digital skills. Project activities will help develop a teachers’ community of interest. 
By sharing information in the training program and seminars, teachers will be fully trained to implement the latest digital skills in teaching, as well as to participate in the global evolution of education and society in the 21st century. In addition, they will have the opportunity to see the results of uniting three educational domains on a common mission which aims to create innovative, practical and promising approaches to the development of digital competencies and skills in education, i.e. create top-quality professional development programs by researching functional and modern methods and approaches.
