Abstract

: Deeply immersed in the Digital Age, the educational use of ICT promotes a new culture of teaching and learning, the pluralisation of learning spaces enables new open and flexible teaching and learning models to emerge in which interaction and collaboration play an outstanding role. High-quality teacher training and the use of web-based technology tools constitute one of the major challenges to be overcome by educational institutions. This paper is a report on the findings of a two-year pilot research conducted on teacher training under ICT-based settings with the aim to provide Catalan language teachers with the necessary skills and abilities to successfully integrate technology into their teaching and learning practices. The process shows results on how from an instructional proposal using web-based technology tools and resources emerged new spaces for communication and new lifelong learning practices that led to the creation of a virtual community of practice.
