Abstract

  • © 2017 Campus Virtuales. All rights reserved.The use of technology in the educational process implies that teachers obtain technical and teaching skills for effective implementation. This research seeks to understand the digital skills used by English teachers in the teaching-learning process of a foreign language at high school level. To address this issue, qualitative methodology and educational ethnography were used to understand the phenomenon from the perspective of the actors, teachers and students. Among the key findings, it was found that despite the use of technology (projector and computer) most teachers still use the traditional method where the teacher is the transmitter of knowledge and the student is a mere passive recipient. Digital skills include technical and pedagogical use of ICT in education and training teachers with these skills contributes to improve the teaching-learning process.
