Here is the Technology Enhanced Learning Roadmap (TEL) for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This is one of the five key areas a school would focus on when becoming a Digital School of Europe. For simplicity of presentation the Roadmap is displayed on five separate pages one for each area of focus as shown above.

The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Roadmap has 4 consecutive stages of progression.

  1. Initial
  2. Enabled
  3. Confident
  4. Mature

Each stage represents a more advanced stage than its predecessor.

It is not unusual for a school to be at different stages across each of the areas listed on the Roadmap. For example, schools may find that they are in the Initial stage one area and perhaps the Enabled stage in another. The TEL Roadmap is designed to generate discussion among the TEL team around the five key areas and their sub-criteria. Becoming a Digital School of Europe does not require schools to be in the Mature Stage but they should target the Enabled and Confident stages instead. Move your mouse over the stages to learn more about them and the criteria required for each stage.

To carry out a Self-evaluation of your school on one or more of the five key areas select the Self-evaluation menu item.
