UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers

12 November 2018

UNESCO's common core syllabus with a basic set of competencies that allows teachers to integrate ICT into their teaching, extend teachers’ professional development to advance their skills in pedagogy, collaboration, and school innovation using ICTs.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes that the prevalence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have a significant potential to accelerate progress, to bridge the digital divide and support the development of inclusive Knowledge Societies based on human rights, the achievement of gender equality and empowerment.

In the attainment of these goals, technology has the potential to provide innovative solutions to enable learners to take part in quality lifelong learning opportunities, to access information and knowledge and fully participate in society. Digital citizenship - the ability and ethical values to participate in society online – is an increasingly vital element in the 21st Century.

In response, UNESCO has developed the ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (ICT CFT) as a tool to guide pre- and in-service teacher training on the use of ICTs across the education system. The ICT CFT is intended to be adapted to support national and institutional goals by providing an up-to-date framework for policy development and capacity building in this dynamic area.

The ICT CFT provides a comprehensive set of competencies teachers need to integrate ICT into their professional practice in order to facilitate students’ achievement of curricular objectives.
