Further Resources

The virtual makerspace is built upon framework of DigCompEdu. The project concentrates on supporting the teaching practices of teacher educators in regard to their use of digital tools and technologies. Consequently, certain sections, beyond those pertaining to the “educators’ pedagogic competences” in the DigCompEdu framework, are intentionally not paid so much attention. Therefore, the “further resources” gathered herein are tailored to specifically address the categories outlined within the aforementioned section of the framework.
