This study will look at how ICT can support modernising schools and education and training practices by exploring assessment strategies that adequately capture all dimensions of the key competences for the 21st century, for all learners. Objective: Provide an overview on the ways in which ICT are and can be used for assessment of knowledge, skills and attitudes of key competences, especially those transversal competences such as learning to learn, creativity, entrepreneurship and digital competence.
Today’s youth are growing up in a world very different from that of their teachers or parents. Ubiquitous access to social media, tools and knowledge resources is taken for granted, while passive teacher-directed work often dominates life at school. In fact, the impossibility of controlling the use of mobile devices has led some schools to prohibit their use. Even when mobile technology becomes part of learning and training programs, challenges arise concerning collaboration, compatibility and security. Despite its potential, school management, teachers and other trainers are challenged by the rapid changes in the technology environment. Open, social and participatory media offer numerous ways to communicate, collaborate and to connect with peers, and have significant potential to transform learning and teaching.
