DESIGN AND VALIDATION OF A STRATEGY FOR THE EVALUATION AND CERTIFICATION OF TEACHING DIGITAL COMPETITION.
Ref. 2015 ARMIF 00035
2016 - 2018
The project presented is the continuation of ARMIF00039 in which the definition and validation of the Teacher's Digital Competence (TDC) rubric has been worked on, as well as the process of training dual-grade students in early childhood and primary education. This process has been related, especially, to the periods of practicum I and II. Now we propose a project whose general objective is to continue this process, starting from Practices III and IV, but designing and developing the evaluation process of the TDC and the certification process of this from the University. In order to certify the TDC, we will continue to work closely with the schools and teachers of these centers, at the same time that an international commission of experts has been set up to help us compare and validate both the process and all the results that go getting. The main expected results of the project are: validate the entire TDC development and training process for the double degree from the four practicum periods, develop and validate a TDC evaluation tool and develop and pilot the certification process of this competence as part of the initial training curriculum of the students of the double degree. The forecast is that once validated the entire process can be transferred to the whole Catalan universities.

Design and implement a strategy for the evaluation and certification of TDC of teacher's dual students
O.1. Design and implement an instrument to evaluate the TDC based on the TDC rubric dor the teacher's double degree.
O.2. Design and implement a joint evaluation strategy of the TDC between the educational centers and the URV of the techer's double degree students.
O.3. Design and validate a certification process of the TDC by the URV during the undergraduate studies.
The methodology selected, for its suitability and convenience, is "Educational Design Research" (EDR) (Van den Akker et al., 2006). This is understood as a systematic process of analysis, design, development and evaluation of an intervention (a training program, a product or a process) as a solution to a complex educational problem (Plomp & Snow, 2009).
It is necessary to overcome the practical deficit of research in educational technology, considering it more as a process and addressing its complexity from a systematic and collaborative perspective, generating values that guide its use for professionals (Amiel & Reeves, 2008).
We consider EDR as a mixed and dynamic methodology, in which there are decisions already taken and others that are generated throughout the process. This justifies that there are methodological concretions that can not be decided and made explicit a priori. The EDR is not something qualitative and quantitative and can not be defined by the methods it uses, but by the objective it pursues: development of grounded innovation (Bereiter, 2002).
