Abstract

A paradigm shift in the approaches to teaching and learning has been underway for decades, moving towards a more learner-centred and participatory classroom, with the teachers potentially acquiring new roles as learning experience designers and agents for change towards 21st. Century learning. This shift is being advanced by the advent of new technologies that can facilitate learner's self-expression, and collaboration and new ways of knowledge representation.  A gap between the potentials of these new approaches to learning - and the actual more comprehensive implementation of it by teachers in the European classrooms - has, however, yet to be fully overcome. This paper presents preliminary experiences from a European Erasmus+ project tasked with developing a digital resource for teacher competence development to answer the needs for 21st- Century learning offered as a MOOC.
