On May 2nd an informative seminar about the CRISS project was held at the Seville headquarters of our partner Sandetel. The seminar was organised by the Consejería de Educación of the Andalusian Government. 150 teachers and schools directors learned about the key points of the project and shared their interest and insights.

The welcome was offered by Domingo Domínguez Bueno, General Director of Innovation and Teacher Training of the Consejería de Educación and by Ángel Ortiz Sánchez, Managing Director of Sandetel. Both of these decision makers in Education and Technology highlighted the importance of  the CRISS initiative for educational centers.

Following the welcome, David Álvarez from Conecta13 gave a presentation on DigComp 2.1, the EU digital competence framework for citizens. His presentation inspired the audience to see the current digital revolution as an opportunity to bring educational practices in line with digital reality.

The next speakers, Andrea Contino and Cristina Casanova from our partner MyDocumenta gave the audience an illuminating view of the CRISS tool, explaining with real-time examples of its functionalities, features and practical application in the classroom and how it can be used to develop, evaluate and certify students’ digital competence.

The seminar continued with the presentation by Lourdes Guardia y Marcelo Fabián Maina from our partner OUC. Their comments focused on the research work behind CRISS and the methodological implementation of the student digital competence framework which they conducted at UOC.

This was followed by a real case study presented by Rafael Vidal, computer specialist and public servant of the Andalusian Secondary School System, at IES Rodrigo Caro in Coria del Río.

The final presentation was given by Elena Oses, representing our partner, the Education Department of the Government of Navarra, who showed creation of learning scenarios, an e-portfolio profile while answering attendees’ questions.

The audience’s interests expressed through its questions centered on issues including the timing of the project, the teacher training, the details of the certification and how CRISS will be further introduced in the educational centers.
