Digital competence in teaching is key to achieving the digital transformation of society, as well as quality, inclusive and accessible education.

Teachers have a very important role to play, together with students. In this context, teachers need to be able to assess their needs for lifelong learning in digital competences.

Improving and developing the digital competence of citizens is nowadays an essential need to ensure the sustainable development of a digital society that does not exclude anyone. In the field of education, this also applies to teaching and learning processes, where the improvement of teachers' digital competence becomes a fundamental element for the institutions themselves to be able to continue to carry out their main mission in the social context in which we find ourselves.

We will extend an invitation to all speakers to prepare an extended version of their presentation as a contribution to be part of a chapter of the book on Competencias Digitales Docentes. This book will be published by Ediciones de la Universidad de Salamanca and will be accompanied by an ISBN number.
