Technology is fundamentally changing how we teach and learn, making it more engaging but also challenging. Educators are facing increased challenges faced to accommodate the rising importance of technology in education and the impact this has on teaching and learning. Digital Pedagogy moves the focus from only ICT tools and skills, to a mode of working in the digital world.
Since computer technologies entered the educational domain, a number of metaphors have been introduced in the literature to explain this newly emerged phenomenon to educators in familiar terms. In order to help educators to understand what digital pedagogy is and how it can be understood, there must be a starting point for knowledge to shape both the understanding and design of appropriate teaching and learning activities with digital tools and methods. To address this challenge, a metaphor that is based on food preparation processes and learning how to competently cook and is analogous to understanding how digital pedagogy – also about process, design, and making knowledge knowable – facilitates learning about teaching using digital tools and methods.
Digital Pedagogy Cookbook project (http://digitalpedagogycookbook.eu/) introduced the digital pedagogy to educators using the recipe metaphor in order to make a meaningful contribution to the up skilling of educators.
The project built upon and extended the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigiCompEdu) https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/digcompedu . During the project implementation 90 recipes have been developed and tested.
Each recipe has been classified by what competences is covering in to DigCompEdu. The elements of each recipe are: Title, description and steps of implementation if needed, learning objectives, ingredients (technological and human resources), links for further reading and didactic analysis.
