UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers

Helping national ministries of education and higher education institutions develop comprehensive national teacher ICT competency policies, standards, courses and open materials.

Welcome

This hub contains collections of Open Education Resources (OER) curated by UNESCO and partner countries, which are aligned to the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (CFT). Here you can discover content and connect with other educators who are using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to improve teaching practice. 

The UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (ICT-CFT) is intended to inform educational policy makers, providers of professional learning and working teachers on the role of ICT in educational reform, as well as to assist Member States in developing national ICT competency standards for teachers with an ICT in Education Master Plan approach. Details on the Framework can be found at UNESCO ICT in Education.

OER in Action

ICT-CFT Aligned Resource

The Framework is arranged in three different approaches to teaching. Technology Literacy, enabling students to use ICT in order to learn more efficiently. Knowledge Deepening, enabling students to acquire in-depth knowledge of their school subjects and apply it to complex, real-world problems. Knowledge Creation, enabling students, citizens and the workforce they become, to create the new knowledge required for more harmonious, fulfilling and prosperous societies.

ICT-CFT Toolkit

This toolkit contains a set of resources used to introduce Information and Communication Technology (ICT) into Teacher Education. The utility of these resources span from creating an ICT in Education strategy, collecting education data, considering approaches to advocacy, designing curriculum to materials development and provides a set of open materials that could be used for training new or in-service teachers.
