Mentep (acronym of Mentoring technology enhanced pedagogy) is a European project funded by the programme Erasmus+ and created in 2016 with the aim of developing and experimenting TET-SAT, the online tool for self-evaluation of teachers’ digital competencies and the use of teaching technologies. The project involved 16 partners in 13 European countries and was addressed to teachers working with youths from 12 to 15 years of age. The aim of the project was to introduce a pedagogical reflexion on the role of digital languages and technologies in education, favour professional updating of teachers, and gather dates regarding attitudes and needs of European teachers in this field.

During the conference, the results of this experimental project will be presented for the first time.  The conference is open to teachers and researchers in the field of education.

In the framework of Mentep, Indire conducted experiments with the tool TET-SAT in Italy, involving a sample of 700  Italian teachers. During the conference, the researcher Gabriella Taddeo will present the experimentation on Immersive evaluation of digital competencies carried out in Italy.
