The ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (UNESCO ICT-CFT)were developed in 2008 and improved in 2011 by the UNESCO cross-sectoral working group based on consultations with experts in the field from all world regions. The aim of the Framework is to support the UNESCO Member States in developing national (regional) policy on teachers’ ICT competence and establishing the standards in this field. The Framework has been enriched using feedback from experts and users worldwide, and has been translated into the several languages, including Russian. The Russian version of ICT-CFT was developed by the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (IITE) in cooperation with national experts from the Russian Federation and was officially presented in December 2011.
The methodological approach proposed in this document explains the most important stages of the UNESCO ICT-CFT adaptation process; suggests guidelines to determine the appropriate strategies and policies for the development of ICTs in education and for the professional development of educators; and identifies the resources needed for the successful implementation of the ICT-CFT to the local context.
