How does it work?

SELFIE for TEACHERS gives you a snapshot of your digital capabilities.

Answer a series of reflective questions to assess your confidence and experience in using digital technologies, tools and resources for teaching, communicating, collaborating with colleagues and supporting learner digital skills.

Receive an automated report showing your current capabilities in each area, along with suggestions on how to improve. You'll also get a digital badge or certificate to show that you’ve taken part.

Your responses to the questions and your report are private, and will only be seen by others if you choose to share it with them.

What are others saying about it?

“It is coming at exactly the right time. As we move post-COVID, we are asking how can we involve teachers more meaningfully in how they can build their digital capabilities and competence. A major challenge is knowing where they are at in terms of competence. This tool is really of benefit to teachers.”

"SELFIE was very interesting for me. I appreciated having it in Lithuanian language. I saw my strengths and weaknesses."

"It would be great to share aggregated data to help us define actions and goals at the school level."

"As a regional government, we can use the anonymous data to respond better to the needs of teachers and better learning for our students."

"I got tips that helped me plan my activities in the next year."
