The MENTEP (MENtoring Technology-Enhanced Pedagogy) project is a European Policy Experimentation funded by the European Commission via the Erasmus+ programme.
MENTEP addresses the need in EU policies for teachers able to innovate using ICT and for improved data on their digital competence. It also tackles the need to enhance the uptake of ICT in teaching and learning, to promote stronger coherence between different EU and national transparency and recognition tools, and strengthen the professional profile of the teaching profession. According to the recent Survey of Schools: ICT in Education, two-thirds of teachers in the EU learn about ICT in their own time, and almost all are positive about ICT impact on students. Despite this readiness, the Survey revealed that teachers’ ICT use in lessons and confidence in their digital competency has to increase
MENTEP aims at:
The experimental measure is a policy measure in 13 countries to enable teachers to monitor their TET competence (="proficiency in using ICT in teaching, applying pedagogic and didactic judgment, and being aware of its implications for learning") using a tool and portal of relevant existing support materials and functionalities on national portals, one in each country in the project.
MENTEP’s goal is to monitor and improve teachers’ TET competency. Its objectives:
As a first step, the MENTEP literature review (July 2015) discusses relevant literature on online self-assessment.
