The TD3C project focuses on teacher creation of digital content. It aims to identify the competencies which enable teachers to create digital content and will work with teachers to trial and iterate a related framework which scaffolds teachers in digital content creation. It will produce teacher education materials to support the realisation of the identified competencies by the teachers participating in the project and resources targeted at pre-service teachers to scale the project outcomes.
Along with The School of Education and Learnovate in Trinity College Dublin, the partner organisations are: Edmund Rice College Dublin, University of Jyväskylä (JYU) and Konnevesi High School in Finland, Agrupamento de Escolas Gil Paes and NUCLIO in Portugal, and Instituto Comprensivo Toniolo in Italy.
TD3C is co-funded by Erasmus+, the EU and Léargas, the Irish national agency managing programmes in youth work, education, and training.
“We are working with teachers to create this framework and the approach is about putting teachers front and centre, acknowledging their role in bringing creativity to the project, and working with teachers to develop a process for content creation.”
