Abstract

The growing impact of globalisation and the development of a ‘knowledge society’ have led many to argue that 21st century skills are essential for life in twenty-first century society and that to utilise technology is central to the development of these skills. Teachers need to be aware of what implications this has for teaching and learning strategies, as well as for the construct of their lesson presentation. A new approach to teaching practice, calibrated for the 21st century, requires teachers to use digital artefacts as an integral part of their teaching. This paper describes an example of practice in the in-service teacher training programme for maths teachers of secondary school, within the Plan for Digital Education (Piano Nazionale Scuola Digitale - PNSD). The authors’ aim is to make participating teachers reflect on their own teaching praxis when using digital technology as an integrated part of their pedagogical content and at the same time to develop their own programmes for digital technology literacy to meet the teaching demands of the 21st century.
