E-Pedagogy and the concept of professional ICT-competence of teacher were created and became the basis for teacher professional development.
Being the context of practical work in schools as a goal, motivation and verification condition, teacher development of ICT-competence needs also a systematic approach in formulation of its outcomes. The approach developed by Prof. Semenov and used in practical work of Moscow Institute of Open Education is based on the notion of teacher professional competence. ICT-competence of teacher is a combination of three components:
С1.1.1 General ICT-competence
С1.1.2 General pedagogical ICT-competence
С1.1.3 Subject specific ICT-competence
This notion can be applied as well to describe ICT-competence of learners.
An ability to learn, not to teach only, is an important quality of teacher for knowledge society. The process of all life learning for teachers and incorporating this process into teaching, involving students into it are promoted by Prof. Semenov as vital for the educational system of the country.
"ICT Competency Standards for Teachers' set up by UNESCO in cooperation with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Cisco, Intel Microsoft, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). They are in harmony with Prof. Semenov vision and are in the process of transfer to the work of MIOE in cooperation with Microsoft, Intel and Apple.
