The four basic competencies (replacement with digital technologies, innovation processes, evaluation of digital teaching strategies, documentation/reflecting of own learning activities and competencies), which are listed in the competence area of the “Digital School-related Competences” under the “Innovations & Reflective Practice”, form a sequence of skills and actions related to the use of digital tools in the education process. Each competence refers to a specific ability or activity that teachers can develop to improve their teaching practices and to promote their professional development. Overall, these skills show how teachers can use digital tools not only in their teaching but also in their professional development.
