Abstract


This paper focuses on new teachers who attended the Italian National Plan for Digital Education (NPDE) training courses between 2015 and 2017. Started in 2016, the NPDE was further developed thanks to the contribution of the 2014-2020 National Operational Programme for the School, “skills and learning environments” which supported 275 NPDE local training hubs in order to organize four training modules aimed both at new teachers and the more experienced ones. This paper analyses the feedback provided by the 1,342 new teachers who filled in the evaluation questionnaires handed out at the beginning and at the end of the modules. The objective of this chapter is to highlight the relations between the preferences expressed by the new teachers within the initial skill assessment and the issues raised in the final questionnaires about the perception of the training programme.
