Abstract

Despite the importance of ICT in school education, there is a lack of a pedagogical approach to ICT training. The focus is still on memorizing, reproduction of knowledge rather than conceptual understanding. To realize the potential inherent in ICT, there is a need for a learner-centered ICT training approach that provides help for acquiring sufficient ICT competency. The goal of this work is to involve teacher students in adopting a learner-centered ICT training approach, applying and evaluating it in their teaching practice in upper secondary schools. It addresses students' learning difficulties when practicing the method, as well as critical factors of success.
