Our article about web-based self- and peer-assessment of teachersâ€™ digital competencies has been recently accepted for publication in the World Wide Web Journal special issue on Advances in Multimedia e-Learning Technologies. The article is a revised version of a paper presented that we presented at the ICWL 2011 conference. It has been extended by a description of the software implementation and a validation study.
We have now completed the first working prototype of DigiMina tool for assessing teachersâ€™ digital competencies. This tool and initial set of assessment tasks were evaluated with a group of teachers. At the moment we have still covered only 20% of competencies with assessment tasks. Therefore we cannot open the system for a wider audience. This autumn we will continue with creating the assessment tasks and improving the usability of the system.
The online version of the article is available through SpringerLink:

I am planning to include this article in my dissertation instead of an earlier paper that was presented at the ICWL 2011 conference.
