Abstract

The technologicalization of society has been a great challenge for education in the XXI century, seeing this in the need to face it in order to provide quality digital literacy. These accelerated changes have repercussions in various areas, among them the professionalization of teachers, due to the difficulties presented when updating their knowledge and adapting to the dizzying technological pace. Teaching Digital Competence (TDC) as safe and critical use of technologies is considered one of the key competencies, guarantors of educational success, within a new approach in virtual education. Following this line, the present research focuses on the design and subsequent validation of the structure, contents, and activities of a training program aimed at improving and developing the digital competence of non-university teachers according to the model of the DigCompEdu Framework belonging to the European Union. This research is part of a larger one and, as a previous step to a larger study, a Delphi-type validation design is established using an expert coefficient that has the participation of 50 people. The results demonstrate the validity of the training proposal, as well as the uniformity of the experts' criteria. In this sense, the application and benefits of this training action for skills development are discussed.
