Demands for the use of ICT in education are continuing to rise. Schools must ensure students' digital literacies, and help develop their digital skills and competencies so that they will be able to cope in a society and a labor market, where the ability to use digital tools in a smart way is essential.
To ensure the best return on the use of ICT in education it is important, that the digital learning tools are selected and used on the basis of the teacher's pedagogical reflections. The teacher must, on the basis of reflections upon the purposes,, the objectives and the content, and in regard to students prerequisites on the topic, select digital learning tools that support the form of teaching, she wants to practice.
eDidaktik.dk introduces The Pedagogical Framework that can serve as the basis for the teacher's ICT pedagogical reflections and qualify the use of ICT in Education. The Pedagogical Framework is based on a distinction between three forms of teaching, and can help qualifying the choice and use of digital learning tools.
Based on the Pedagogical Framework eDidaktik also presents a number of articles on free digital learning tools. The articles on the digital learning tools can be seen as an inspiration for teachers who would like to integrate ICT in education on the basis of pedagogical reflections, and they provide suggestions on how the different learning tools can support the different forms of teaching. Common to the presented tools is that they are free of cost and web-based, and therefore works across platforms.
